And Garcia, who met Rodgers for the first time at the ‘Celebration of the 96’ at Anfield this week, backed Liverpool to regularly challenge for titles in the coming seasons.

“Like every Liverpool fan, I have enjoyed this great season. They are going to make history – I believe they will win the title,” Garcia told Liverpool’s website.

“There were many people who doubted them a few months ago and were waiting for Liverpool to slip up, but it hasn’t happened.

“Even when they didn’t have the best of games, they continued winning. They deserve the title because they have been so consistent.

“I met Brendan for the first time before the legends game. He said: ‘Hi, Luis, how are you?’ I felt like he was an old friend!

“That’s important as a manager. Yes, you have to be serious and you have to make the players work hard but after that to be a human being is very important.

“I can see why players enjoy playing for him and how he gets the best out of them.

“I think something is building here. Liverpool are building a new era under Brendan. Hopefully for the next few years they will be at the top and fighting for big titles.”
