Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler believes that his old side have a fantastic manager in Brendan Rodgers and the Northern Irishman can lead the club to greatness.
The former goal-machine has loved every minute of Rodgers' reign on Merseyside and is extremely impressed by how quickly he has turned things around.
Now, Fowler thinks that Liverpool can only continue to improve and can regain some of their old glories they once had.
'Great time to be a Liverpool fan'
Speaking to the Liverpool Echo, he said: "I think now is a great time to be a Liverpool fan. I can honestly see us being a major, major force again pretty soon.
“The squad and the staff are great together, Brendan is superb, I can see us getting better and better under his guidance.
“I can’t wait for the European nights again, they will be special. It’s great to be back in the Champions League.
“Real Madrid won’t want to come to Anfield with our fans and the atmosphere here.”
Moving in the right direction
Fowler, who scored 182 goals for Liverpool in two spells, is correct to believe that his former club are moving in the right direction.
In just Rodgers' second season at the helm, he guided the Reds to finish second in the Premier League, finishing just two points behind Manchester City.
When the former Watford boss arrived on the shores of the River Mersey, Liverpool were in a difficult situation to say the least. They had just finished eighth in the league and the squad was filled with mediocre players who former manager Roy Hodgson and Kenny Dalglish had over-paid for.
However, Rodgers drafted in some youthful players to Anfield such as Daniel Sturridge and Philippe Coutinho who very much improved the side.
He also was responsible to developing some players who already remained at the club. Jordan Henderson had been signed in 2011 for £16 million from Sunderland however he very much flopped in his first season at Liverpool.
Nonetheless, through the mentorship of Rodgers, the midfielder improved drastically and is know a regular in the Liverpool starting XI.
Rodgers has also started this season in an extremely positive manner as he looks to make Liverpool a force they once were 30 years prior.
He certainly hasn't been afraid to spend the transfer kitty this summer, splashing out over £100 million on the likes of Mario Balotelli, Adam Lallana and Dejan Lovren.
The Northern Irishman has added quality and depth to every position in the squad. Now Liverpool are back competing in the Champions League, it adds vital cover to have top-class players both in Europe and domestically.
The competition also forces players to be at their very best - they know that unlike season when the squad was bare that they can be easily replaced if an under-par performance is put in.
