Nathaniel Clyne believes Liverpool can challenge for Premier League

Published 1 Comments

Nathaniel Clyne insists Liverpool can have a "special season" and challenge for the Premier League title this campaign.

Clyne signed for the Reds last month for £12.5 million from Southampton and joined his new club on their pre-season tour of the Far East and Australia.

The 24-year-old performed very well in a number of pre-season friendlies and looks set to be Brendan Rodgers' first-choice right-back this term.

Seven new faces have arrived at Anfield this summer including Christian Benteke for £32.5 million from Aston Villa and Brazil international Roberto Firmino moving from Hoffenheim.

Rodgers has spent over £70 million on fresh recruits as he looks to march Liverpool into the top-four come next May.

However, Clyne is aiming high and is optimistic his new team can emulate the success of two seasons ago when Liverpool came within a whisker of winning the league title for the first time in 24 years.

“Two seasons ago, Liverpool were pushing and nearly won the league, so we’re not too far away and with the additions to the team this year, we are looking to push on again,” the 24-year-old told the Liverpool Echo.

“Hopefully we can push for the title this season.

“You can see with the team and the quality that we have got that we can have a special season.”

It's been 26 years since the league title found itself in the Anfield trophy cabinet and Kopites are desperate to witness their team win it once again.

The Reds dominated the league in the 1980's winning it six times and fans are tired of living on their past laurels. There have, of course, been multiple trophy wins with the Champions League triumph in 2005 by far being the highlight.

However, winning the league shows a significant sense of commitment and consistency for 38 matches and every footballer dreams about lifting the domestic title above their head.

The Merseyside outfit have gone close to winning the league three times in 2003, 2009 and 2014 but the delay still goes on.

Rodgers' principal aim this term will be finishing in the top-four and qualifying for the Champions League given the finaBeing in the competition reaps plenty of rewards both financially and attracting the world's best players.
