Liverpool fans must savour 'dream season': Reds chairman

Liverpool fans should savour the club’s “dream season” in the English Premier League as they may never see another like it, chairman Tom Werner has said.

The Reds are on course for a first league title in 30 years with Juergen Klopp’s side winning 24 out of 25 games for a 22-point lead over champions Manchester City – the biggest of any leader at the end of a matchday in English top-flight history.

“I keep telling everyone to really savour this, the record that we’ve kept so far – I don’t think it’s going to come along again so quickly,” Werner told reporters.

“We haven’t accomplished anything yet, but at the same time, everybody, not just Liverpool fans, can appreciate the brand of football that’s on display.

“As a supporter, this has been a dream season so far, every weekend we seem to find a different star to laud... we’ll have time to enjoy this even more at the end of the season.”

Liverpool are also the holders of the Champions League and Club World Cup trophies.

“I am (pinching myself). I’m enjoying every weekend,” Werner added. “This is a team that really enjoys playing football and there’s a certain character quality they have on the pitch and off the pitch.”
