Robbie Fowler makes exciting Liverpool claim

Liverpool are fancied to go one better in the Premier League this season.

Robbie Fowler has told The Mirror that Liverpool have only reached a fraction of their true potential.

Jurgen Klopp led the Reds to Champions League glory in June for what was their first trophy under the German manager, who took the reins almost four years ago.

In addition to that, Liverpool made huge progress domestically but missed out on the Premier League title - a first in 29 years - by only a point as Manchester City defended their crown.

But Klopp's side lost just the once all season long and, despite a quiet transfer window which has seen just two teenagers arrive, there is a feeling that their European success could give them the edge this season.

 

They have also been able to keep the squad together for the most part, and Anfield legend Fowler feels that there's so much more to come from this Liverpool side.

He told The Mirror: "Klopp has won a trophy with a team that he’s just formed and he knows they have reached only a fraction of their potential.

"They have paid massive money to retain this group and Klopp must be relishing the chance to discover what he can do with a squad so cohesive and with such spirit. They look as if they believe in each other and are enjoying their journey."

It's a very exciting claim by the former striker and one Liverpool fans will believe.

This is still a relatively young squad and there's nothing to stop them from enjoying a period of success, similar to Reds' squads of yesteryear.
