Why Liverpool will ‘forever’ challenge for titles


Liverpool legend Gary Gillespie has affirmed that his former team will now always challenge for a title because of one single thing they have been able to get right under manager Jurgen Klopp.

Since the German manager joined the Anfield from Bundesliga outfit Borussia Dortmund, the Reds team have been bake to challenge for titles. Although they have not won any under his reign he came very close last season after reaching the finals of the Champions League and finishing second in the Premier League table.

However, the Reds legend argues that the Jurgen Klopp side are able to challenge for trophies because of the kind of preseason trips they embark upon, stressing that it helps them to have a strong focus when they go away.

He noted that manager Jurgen Klopp has been able to build a character for the team which helps them to play ugly and win games. This he said has been achieved during the preseason, stressing that when they have such trips, the emphasis is usually on team building.

According to the Liverpool legend, the Reds team will always be in a better position to win should this continue.

Meanwhile, they are currently top in the league table with two points ahead of Man City as the contest for the Premier League title runs into its final weeks.
