Liverpool legend John Barnes believes that Reds manager Jurgen Klopp will find it very difficult to bring back the glory days of league dominance in the 70s and 80s for the Merseyside club.

The former Reds winger believes the Premier League is now too competitive for one club to dominate for a prolonged period of time. He told Omnisport.

“He’s not going to bring Liverpool back to the glory days in terms of winning the league every year and winning the European Cup. Because that’s not going to happen anywhere, apart from if you’re Barcelona,”

“In England you are going to see a change of maybe Leicester winning [the Premier League] this year or maybe even Tottenham. But I don’t think you’re going to have a one team dominating like Liverpool did in the 70s and 80s, and as Manchester United did in the 90s, or how Arsenal did for a while.”

“You are going to have a change in who wins the league every year, which is good competition.”

Liverpool face Klopp’s old side Borussia Dortmund in the Europa League on Thursday night with the Reds hoping to bring back a result from Germany to give themselves a good chance of progressing at a special European night at Anfield on the 14th April.
