Liverpool could be just at the start of an era of domestic domination
after sealing their first English title for three decades, according to
former striker Robbie Fowler.
Juergen Klopp’s side have won the title with a record seven matches
remaining and stand 23 points ahead of Manchester City, champions for
the past two years.
“Last year we finished second with 97 points and we knew we were on
the periphery of something great,” said Brisbane Roar coach Fowler, who
scored 120 Premier League goals for the club, told Sky Sports.
“One of the problems was Manchester City, they have a brilliant side
and are still outstanding and it shows how good Liverpool are to be so
“The club has grown and this side and this squad is capable of going on and doing this again, it really is.”
Fowler said the arrival of former Borussia Dortmund manager Klopp in
2015 was the turning point, as was the emphasis on strengthening
“Fair play to Juergen, he could have had the pick of any club
potentially, but he came in and said we can win the league in five years
and we can re-write our own history,” Fowler said.
Liverpool need 15 points from their last seven games to break City’s Premier League record haul of 100 points.
