Liverpool have been tipped to go on to win more trophies after winning their sixth Champions League title by former defender Stephen Warnock.
The Reds became the third most successful club in European history when Jordan Henderson lifted ol’ big ears above his head in Madrid this summer.
Jurgen Klopp’s men had to overcome Premier League rivals Tottenham Hotspur in the final, but it was in the semi-final where they faced their biggest challenge.
Barcelona came to Anfield with a three goal advantage, but the Reds hit the Catalan giants for four with no response to take on Spurs at the home of Atletico Madrid.
Liverpool were the underdogs on their own turf, and it’s the character that the lads shown that night that makes Warnock think we’re destined for more glory.
“When you look at the team now, we’ve been in two European Cup finals in two seasons – it’s not a fluke,” he told the club’s official website.
“When we went through and we won it in 2005, it was probably against the odds. There wasn’t an expectancy to win it this year, but there was a feeling that they could win it.
“When you look at Jurgen’s record in Europe, over two legs he’s so dominant and Anfield has become more and more of a fortress, people just don’t enjoy coming to Anfield.
“I think that’s one of the great things – there’s a feeling that they can overcome anything. You always want that feeling of being a winner again.
“You always want to keep winning as much as you can and it breeds a hunger within the squad to do well again. I think that’s the most important thing.
“You often hear about a team winning the first one, getting that first one over the line and it breeds confidence to go and win more.”
The Reds get their first chance of silverware next weekend as they take on Manchester City at Wembley for the Community Shield.
Another opportunity will follow just a few weeks later as Klopp will take on Frank Lampard’s Chelsea in Istanbul for the European Super Cup title.
Neither trophy would stand up to the Champions League, but winning silverware isn’t a bad habit to get into!
