Liverpool chief executive Peter Moore says the Reds have been”back to our perch” – a phrase famously used by former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson about the Anfield club.
After coming at Old Trafford in 1986, Ferguson said his first job would be to”knock Liverpool right off their perch”.
The Scot continued to win before retiring in 2013 13 Premier Leagues, taking their tally of English top-flight titles to 20, in comparison with Liverpool’s 18.
But a lifelong Liverpool fan who had been appointed from the club in 2017 Moore, thinks their status has been regained by the Champions League champions.
The Reds were crowned European champions for the sixth time in June and are just five points clear of Manchester City – and 10 at the peak of the Premier League – ahead of United after winning all six of the games this season.
They have only lost once in their past 45 matches, completing a stage behind champions City term.
“We’re back to our perch, as we famously say,” Moore told former Liverpool striker Michael Robinson, who’s now one of Spain’s leading sports broadcasters, through an interview in the World Football Summit in Madrid.
The 64-year-old was made by Fenway Sports Group – the American company which bought Liverpool for #300m – in February 2017.
Since then, the Reds have attained two Champions League finals under director Jurgen Klopp and began work.
“What the Fenway Sports Group have achieved at Liverpool on the previous nine years is nothing short of awesome,” added Moore.
“They have gone through ups and downs but’ve stayed the course and never taken a cent from the club.”
The Main Stand in Anfield – taking the ability above 54,000 of the stadium – while Netherlands protector Virgil van Dijk was signed by the Reds for Brazil goalkeeper Alisson along with # 75m for # 67m at 2018.
Moore confirmed Liverpool are currently spending on a digital strategy 771 million followers are estimated in by them.
“Soccer is a regular cycle,” he said. “You push revenues so that you may afford to get a goalkeeper or a centre-half which can win you games. Sponsors would like to be part of your story, so they give you a cheque, If you win matches. You take that cash and buy players. They even win you more games.”
Liverpool boss Klopp will have been in charge for 3 years from October.
The former Borussia Dortmund manager has taken the Reds to three straight top-four endings for the first time in ten years from eighth in the Premier League and reached four cup finals.
The German was appointed men’s coach of the year on Monday at the Fifa Football awards.
“Jurgen is among the more holisitic human beings you will ever meet,” explained Moore.
“He can keep the boat going straight, motivate not just the players but his staff, the training team, the sport science staff – he keeps everyone on an even keel.
“His character is contagious. His charm is without question
“Even when you’ve lost he makes you think there is a brighter sunlight beforehand.”
