Luis Suarez makes prediction about Liverpool’s future under Jurgen Klopp

Luis Suarez is confident Jurgen Klopp can guide Liverpool back into the Champions League

Luis Suarez says he is confident Jurgen Klopp will guide Liverpool back into the Champions League.

The Reds are currently in eighth place in the Premier League table and nine points adrift of Manchester City, who occupy the final Champions League qualifying spot.

They have a new coach who is one of the most experienced in Europe, so I am sure they can be back there soon

Klopp was named as Brendan Rodgers’s successor in October after a disappointing spell under the Northern Irishman following Suarez’s £75m move to Barcelona from Liverpool in 2014.

However, the Uruguay international spoke of his continued affection for the five-time European champions and his faith in current manager Klopp.

“I will always watch Liverpool and look for their results, they will always be a very special club for me. I would love to see them back in the Champions League,” Suarez told The Express.

“They have a new coach who is one of the most experienced in Europe, so I am sure they can be back there soon. It is where that special club belongs.”

Suarez scored 82 times in 133 games in all competitions during a three-and-a-half year stay at Anfield.

The South American striker has already netted an incredible 66 goals in just 80 games for the Catalan side in the past 18 months.
