Liverpool are champions of Europe once again. They are also champions of the world. With Jürgen Klopp’s side in fine form domestically, they will be expecting to retain their continental crown. Reported target Kylian Mbappe has named Liverpool as one of the favourites for the Champions League this season.
The Frenchman has been linked with a move to Anfield for forever and a day.
We saw Kopites in raptures this week after the wonderkid talked of his admiration for Jürgen Klopp’s side.
He has reaffirmed his belief in the Anfield giants in an interview with Gazzetta dello Sport (h/t Express).
Mbappe told the publication:
“This year Juventus are among the favourites [for the Champions League] – along with the usual suspects – Real Madrid, Barcelona and Liverpool.”
What RTK has to say
Kopites have already overdosed on Mbappe to Liverpool news this week.
Reds fans will be reading more into the fact that the PSG star ignored Manchester City in his predictions for this year’s Champions League.
The Citizens have fallen way behind in the Premier League and face a tough test in Europe having been drawn against Real Madrid.
With Los Blancos boasting a much better pedigree in this competition, we can expect Pep Guardiola’s side to struggle over two legs.
If The Reds do go on to win it then it could prove vital in any potential pursuit of the much coveted Mbappe. The Frenchman will cost a pretty penny – winning the richest prize in football would put a dent in the fee.
