Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has warned the club's owner, John W Henry, that delivering the Premier League title will take time.
After Henry's Boston Red Sox won baseball's World Series for the third time in 10 years by beating St Luis Cardinals 4-2 in a best of seven contest, Rodgers warned Henry that it will take time to end Liverpool's wait for the Premier League title.
"Congratulations to the owners of the Boston Red Sox," Rodgers is quoted on Sky Sports. "It is very clear that they are a group who had a plan to get that success.
"It is brilliant for them and another demonstration of an organisation which is proven to be successful and I am aware of the changes they have made in order to bring that success.
"But it takes that little bit longer in this sport. Liverpool is about winning trophies and that expectancy is always here. I believe we are in a good place at the moment, but it will take time."
Liverpool have made a good start to the season and find themselves third in the table, two points behind leaders Arsenal - who they face at the Emirates on Saturday - and Rodgers will be hoping that his team can maintain their momentum.
"Arsenal are a top team and the competition this year is very close," he said.
"But I believe we are in a good moment having started this season as we would have wanted.
"We have started strongly, have put a marker down showing we are going to be consistent and I think we can only get better from here.
"We have a lot of young players who are still developing, and that goes for the front two that everyone is talking about.
"Daniel (Sturridge) is 24 and is improving all the time and Luis Suarez has shown us an improvement in his footballing ability and his maturity.
"That bodes well for us but we won't get carried away. They must keep their concentration and continue to work very hard every day on the training field.
"That is what has brought us success over a period, not just this early part of the season but since the turn of the year."
Liverpool will welcome back Brazilian midfielder Philippe Coutinho for their tough trip to the Emirates.
