Robert Lewandowski makes claim about Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp

Robert Lewandowski is backing Liverpool to challenge for the Premier League title this season

Robert Lewandowski is backing Liverpool to challenge for the Premier League title this season under new manager Jurgen Klopp.

The German has just begun his first full season in charge at Anfield since being appointed as Brendan Rodgers’ successor on Merseyside back in October of last year.

Liverpool have made a very strong start to the new campaign under their new manager. The Reds are currently in fourth place in the Premier League table but just two points behind leaders Manchester City after seven games.

The Merseyside outfit do not have the distraction of European football this season as they concentrate fully on domestic affairs.

And Poland striker Lewandowski, who played under Klopp during his time at Borussia Dortmund, is backing the German coach to be a big success at Anfield.

Speaking in an interview with Goal, Lewandowski said: “Under Klopp I think they will be fighting for the title this season.

‘Pep and Manchester City will not make it easy for anybody to win the title, but Liverpool have a real chance.”
