Former Liverpool defender Jose Enrique has said that Liverpool can achieve the Premier League and Champions League double this season, following on from their success in the latter competition last term.
Having lost the 2018 final, Jurgen Klopp’s side went one better last term with victory over Tottenham Hotspur in Madrid and almost clinched their first league title in 29 years before Manchester City retained the crown by a point.
Speaking after the legends’ match between Liverpool and Rangers, however, Enrique – who left Anfield in 2015, backed the Reds to achieve both domestic and European success this time around.
“The year I finished with Liverpool is when Klopp came. He manages the club completely, he does everything,” the Spaniard told the Liverpool Echo. “The way they are playing right now is amazing, he has improved every player in every position.
“Hopefully they win another title. Last year it was the Champions League, the year before they were unlucky and the year before they were unlucky as well.
“Hopefully this year it is the league and the Champions League as well. I think they will want to fight for everything, they are one of the top teams in the world. I am so proud to say I played for them.”
In other Liverpool news, the club are reportedly considering a move for on-loan Leeds United defender Ben White, who has impressed since his temporary move from Brighton.
