Karren Brady on Liverpool and Arsenal’s future prospects

West Ham United vice-chairman Karren Brady has positive predictions for Premier League rivals Liverpool and Arsenal.

West Ham United vice-chairman Karren Brady has predicted in The Sun that both Liverpool and Arsenal will return to their glory days.

Liverpool and Arsenal are two of the biggest clubs in the world, but in recent years both have struggled to win major honours.

While the Reds have not won the league title in the Premier League era, Arsenal have not claimed the championship since 2004.

Liverpool did win the Champions League in 2005 and reached the final in 2007, but they are by no means regulars in Europe’s premier club competition.

Although the Gunners do feature in the Champions League every season, they are not regarded as a team who can win it.

West Ham vice-chairman Brady, though, believes that both Liverpool and Arsenal will return to their glorious past sooner rather than later.

“Brendan Rodgers admits Liverpool are out of the contest for the top four - but I agree with him that the club is a superpower, consistently producing or polishing outstanding British players,” Brady wrote in his her football diary in The Sun on Saturday.

“People forget that Man U went 25 years without a title and were never written off. History and tradition suggest Liverpool will return to the very heights. Also true of Arsenal.”

Liverpool fans will certainly hope that Brady’s prediction comes true, but it looks unlikely that the Merseyside outfit will be able to return to their glorious past anytime soon.

At the moment, the Reds are struggling to even finish in the top four of the Premier League - winning the title is just an idea at this moment in time.

As for Arsenal, there are signs that they could become competitive again. With the club able to spend on top-class players again, perhaps in the two or three years, the North London outfit will win the league title.
