Why Liverpool are now the most attractive club in Europe

It truly is a wonderful time to be a Liverpool supporter. They say to enjoy the good times as we all know in football nothing lasts forever.

The European champions and runaway Premier League leaders are currently operating at the peak of their powers. Liverpool have claimed 46 points from a possible 48 this season and have only dropped two points since March.

They have won 15 successive home league matches and have only one league defeat in their previous 55 matches.

Off the pitch, plans have already been announced to develop the Anfield Road section of Liverpool’s iconic home ground. The Reds are also expected to bolster up their squad in January after it was reported by the Times that the European champions have accelerated their interest in RB Salzburg playmaker Takumi Minamino.

In such a transformative period under Klopp, Liverpool have suddenly emerged as Europe’s most attractive destination for the world’s most aspiring players.

The Reds successfully progressed through to the Champions League knockout stages on Tuesday following a 2-0 victory in Salzburg. Klopp and his team are looking to make it three successive Champions League finals come May in Istanbul.

Liverpool also boast the best manager currently in world football. The FIFA Coach of the Year for 2019 radiates positivity throughout the Anfield walls. The German manager has transformed the club from one that had lost its way into Kings of Europe and the team to beat in the Premier League. No one has had a bigger impact on Liverpool football club since Bill Shankly was at the helm 60 years ago.

Just look at the players Klopp has harnessed from unrecognised prospects into European superstars. Just ask yourself how many players in Liverpool’s squad are considered world-class and you may run out of fingers to count on.

Klopp’s squad is littered with players who have battled in the face of adversity to overcome numerous challenges to rise to the peak of European’s elite.

Seven of Liverpool’s Champions League-winning squad were nominated for the Ballon d’Or awards in November. The likes of Virgil van Dijk, Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmimo, Alisson Becker, Mohamed Salah, Andy Robertson, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Gini Wijnaldum have all taken the next step into global stardom under Klopp’s tutelage.

It’s no wonder some of Europe’s hottest properties are desperate to work under the former Borussia Dortmund manager’s guidance. There is a mentality in the team that nothing can defeat them. Klopp’s men have collected 10 points from losing positions already this season – more than any other team.

Liverpool’s players have proven they now have the ability to repay the faith on the biggest of stages. With the UEFA Super Cup already added to the Champions League and this month’s Club World Cup on the horizon, the stage is very much set for Liverpool to establish a dynasty that will forever live in club folklore.

This is Liverpool’s time. You’d be foolish to get in their way.
