Hyypia believes that Liverpool can win both Premier League and Champions League titles
Former Liverpool captain Sami Hyypia believes that the Reds are able to win the Premier League and Champions League this season.
Having no burdens in the form of domestic cup competitions, Liverpool received a full week and a half to prepare for the Champions League 1\8 finals first leg against Bayern Munich.
There is a thought that the Reds should abandon the Champions League, in order to increase their chances for the first champion title in the last 29 years in England, but Hyypia wants Jurgen Klopp’s team to succeed on both fronts.
Sami recalled that Liverpool were in the Champions League final last year. It is foolish to expect from the team something other than winning the title in the next season after the UCL final.
After the team made a number of excellent acquisitions last summer, there Is no reason to believe that the club will perform worse this season.
The defender understands that it will be hard, but it is possible. The team must continue to fight for both trophies, as long as possible. This is what the club’s fans want – to see their team claim the two biggest trophies.
