5 Reasons That Proves Why Liverpool is the Best Football Club in the World
Liverpool, nicknamed as the ‘Reds’ is one of the most successful football clubs in the world. It has more than 200 supporter clubs in around 50 different countries.
LFC has won nineteen league titles, six European Cups, eight League Cups, seven FA Cups, and several other trophies. Achievements of the ‘reds’ are more than any other English Football Club.
Liverpool is undoubtedly the best football club in the world and here are five reasons that prove it:
1- Liverpool Has the Best Coach in the World
In an interview with calciomercato.com, Francesco Totti said, “Klopp is one of the best coaches in the world”.
The Liverpool F.C. manager is the force behind the club’s success since his arrival in October 2015. The 2020 season worked on his pledge – ‘turn doubters into believers’.
Under his able guidance, the club won the UEFA Champions League finals in 2019. Moreover, Liverpool finished second in the 2018–19 Premier League, with 97 points, which is the most by a team without winning the title. Thereafter, Klopp guided Liverpool to victory in the UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup. He also helped Liverpool win their first Premier League title, which broke several records.
His drive to maintain high standards has ensured that they do not ease down. His goal is to make Liverpool F.C. the best in the world, and he has turned Liverpool F.C. into a Billion Dollar Football Club.
2- Smart Investing Helped The Club Sign the Top Players At the Right Time
LFC constructed a squad by securing some great signings at the right time.
In the club’s first summer transfer window, Sadio Mane and Georginio Wijnaldum arrived to help the club return to the Champions League Stage. Next year, Mohamed Salah, Andy Robertson and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain joined them.
In January 2018, LFC signed Virgil van Dijk for $93 million, who became the world’s most expensive defender. With full-backs Robertson and academy graduate Trent Alexander-Arnold, Liverpool was able to enter the finals of Champions League 2018.
The signing of Alisson Becker, Fabinho, Naby Keita, and Xherdan Shaqiri nearly completed the construction of a squad that can take on clubs in the world.
3- The Dynamic and Forceful Liverpool Trio
With the arrival of Mo Salah in Anfield in 2017, many Liverpool FC fans were doubtful of his ability to score goals and to link up with the other attackers, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino. Fast forward to 3 years, and those same skeptical LFC fans were cheering the name of the two-time Golden Boot winner.
The dynamic trio has been at the front of Liverpool’s recent return to the top position, winning a Champions League, a Super Cup, and Club World Cup in the process. The Dynamic trio has won three Golden Boots between them with Salah sharing last season’s Golden Boot with Mane.
4- The Liverpool Wall is the Strongest
Liverpool has one of the strongest defenders in the form of Van Dijk, who is nicknamed by many as the “Liverpool Wall”.
Van Dijk moved to Celtic FC from FC Groningen in 2013 and won the Scottish Premiership. With his arrival in Scotland, his defensive skills started to get the spotlight. Everyone started recognizing his ability to hold the ball and dominate the game with possession. Van Dijk’s defensive skills shined even brighter after regularly playing in the Champions League.
Van Dijk impressed many English clubs who showed interest in signing him. In the end, Southampton was the team that made a strong bid and signed Van Dijk in 2015.
After that, Van Dijk became one of the greatest defensive players in football. Finally, Liverpool signed him for £75m at the start of 2018, and he proved himself as one of the greatest defenders.
5- Liverpool Has The Deadliest Full-Back Duo
The two full-backs, who helped Liverpool reach to the top are Alexander-Arnold and Andrew Robertson. Most of the counter-attacks are designed by taking the duo’s ability to attack.
They helped the club in winning matches, such as the final goal by Arnold’s against Barcelona in the Champions League quarter-finals. The duo performs even better in a defensive position. Their reading of the passes and intercepting opponent’s passes makes them priceless.
Liverpool led by German coach Jürgen Klopp was superb in the 2019-20 campaign. The management of Liverpool FC is beyond par. Decisions such as the tactical and smart signing of players, no unnecessary high wage bills, and no purchases that exceed the limit are the main reasons for the success of Liverpool.
Recently, a nickname was given to Liverpool F.C. They are known as ‘Mentality Monsters’ because they never give up and always want to win at any cost.
