‘Next year could be a big one for Liverpool’, Reds legend Rush tells talkSPORT

first_imgIan Rush believes Liverpool could be set for major success under Jurgen Klopp in 2017/18.This season has been a mixed one for the Merseysiders.After a promising start, their form dipped alarmingly at the turn of the year and ended any hopes of silverware.But they have picked up over the past two months – losing just one of their last nine games – and Monday’s win over Watford has strengthened their grip on a top four spot.And, with Champions League qualification looking likely, Rush is predicting good things for his old club next term.Speaking exclusively to the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, the Reds legend said: “If you get in the Champions League, you do attract the European players.“Next year could be a big year for Liverpool.“They are going to have a good pre-season, which is what Jurgen Klopp wants, and if they keep the players fit and he gets the players he wants in, we are looking upwards.“The first step is to get in the Champions League and the next step is to take it further.”Listen to talkSPORT’s interview with Ian Rush IN FULL above!last_img
