Liverpool fans haven’t had it this good in quite some time.
With a Champions League final to contest and one of the deadliest players on the planet within their ranks, they couldn’t ask for much more.
Jurgen Klopp and Mohamed Salah deserve a significant portion of the credit for helping the Reds embark on their most successful season in over a decade.
Real Madrid represent a formidable last hurdle in their quest for European glory, but given what Liverpool have already achieved in this campaign, there’s no reason they can’t pull it off.
Klopp has spread a confidence throughout his squad that makes them a match for any opposition – even one with the quality and pedigree of Los Blancos.
That’s not to say Liverpool don’t have star players of their own – and club chairman Tom Werner believes the German has had a huge influence on their appeal in the transfer market.
“I want to pay great credit obviously to Jurgen because he's our leader but also to sporting director Michael Edwards, Dave Fallows and Barry Hunter,” Werner told the Liverpool Echo.
“As a team they are extremely collaborative in the recruitment of our players.
“With Virgil [Dijk], it was very clear that he wanted to come to play for Liverpool.
“We always read about how players have a dream to play for one of the great Spanish clubs. Under Jurgen's leadership, top players want to come to Liverpool.
“I am very positive about our future because Jurgen attracts the best players.”
With that in mind, it seems the Anfield faithful have plenty to be excited about for next season.
Naby Keita is due to complete his prearranged £52.75 million switch from RB Leipzig, the Reds are in pole position to sign Lyon’s Nabil Fekir for roughly £60 million.
It won’t stop there, though.
TOM WERNER'S TRANSFER PROMISE
Werner has pledged to strengthen Klopp’s squad during the summer, irrespective of the potential windfall offered by a Champions League title.
“I am excited to see Naby Keita join the club this summer and I can only promise our supporters that we will continue to improve the squad,” he said.
“Whatever happens on Saturday night, we will ensure we have a strong squad to compete for trophies next season which will have even more depth.
“We will make decisions that will improve the team and we will sign players who make us even more successful.”
It’s beginning to look like Liverpool are serious about competing on all fronts next season – and their fans know it.
