Ian Rush: The wait is over

Jurgen Klopp drove Liverpool to the triumph of their “Sacred goal” Premier League title and the great Ian Rush of Anfield is enchanted with the considerable delay.

Liverpool legend Ian Rush says Jurgen Klopp, the Premier League champions, are “straight up there” with the club’s greatest teams. And according to record Reds goalscorer Rush, after breaking a 30-year wait to win the English crown, Liverpool will be very much ready to retain their title next season.

Manchester City’s 2-1 misfortune at Chelsea on Thursday meant the Reds couldn’t be found on top.

Surge, a five-time league champion with Liverpool, told BBC Radio 5 Live during celebrations on Merseyside: “It is for the more youthful generation. The more youthful generation more likely than not been tired of their parents or grandparents saying, ‘I recollect when Liverpool won the title.’ This more youthful generation will say presently, ‘I’ve seen Liverpool win the title.’ And ideally, they will go on to something greater and better. We have been waiting for a really long time. Around one point you thought: is the season going to be finished? At long last, we arrived. I believe it will be an extremely, pleasant couple of days.”

The surge was an individual from the championship-winning side of the 1990s and felt that saying Liverpool won’t secure another top-flight title until 2020 would have been considered absurd at the time.”If you had told me if this would be the case in 1990, I would have laughed and answered, ‘Don’t be imbecilic.’ It resembles the Holy Grail – great managers have attempted and failed, and Jurgen Klopp has come and succeeded and it’s only unfathomable for the club,” answered Rush.

The Liverpool teams of the 1970s and 1980s were trophy-winning machines yet Rush accepts the resemblance of the current generation bear to those sides.

Surge said: “I’m recommending that you ought to equate teams when they won things and this team has won stuff now. They would be straight up there to break records for Liverpool Football Club. It’s as basic as that. The stats disclose to you the story.”

For the most points earned in a Premier League season, the Liverpool sights record is with 15 points required from seven games to hit a total of 100 out of the 2017-18 campaign in Manchester City.

“On the off chance that they could go on and win five of those seven games that I believe they will go for as well, they ‘d have to be straight up there,” said Rush.

“At Liverpool, we’ve always been told that the easiest thing is to win it, the hardest thing is to retain it. I stop for a minute, this side is very capable of doing that and I think Liverpool is in an awesome place for the following three to five years. These players will, and appropriately, deservedly in this way, become Liverpool legends. Perhaps this is only the start of occasions.”
