Jose Mourinho told beIN Sports that he thinks Liverpool can make it three Champions League finals in a row next season.
He told beIN SPORTS: “Real Madrid did three in a row, why can’t Liverpool do three finals in a row?
“Real Madrid won three, why Liverpool, with this good team with this good spirit with this good empathy, a club, the manager, the players, the fans, you can feel that empathy, why not a third?”
Liverpool won the 2019 Champions League final in Madrid thanks to a penalty from Mohamed Salah and a fine left-footed strike from Divock Origi.
The Reds’ sixth European Cup will come as a massive message of intent to the rest of the continent and should be a sign of what’s to come under Jurgen Klopp.
Mourinho, who has acted as a rival of Klopp’s for so many years has tipped the German to appear in his third successive Champions League final next season.
His work at Liverpool has been extraordinary as he took over an awful side left to him by Brendan Rodgers and worked his magic to turn it into the group of world beaters we see today.
Alisson, van Dijk, Robertson, Fabinho, Salah, Firmino and Mane make the core of this Liverpool side and are surrounded by other near-world-class players.
If Klopp buys properly in the transfer market this summer, he could win both the Premier League and the Champions League next season.
