Former Liverpool midfielder believes Liverpool are succeeding not because they have got quality players than Manchester United, Arsenal and other local rivals but because they believe in their manager.
Jurgen Klop has managed to bring Liverpool very close to actualizing their 30-years long awaited dream and former Reds midfielder believes its not great players that has made this become a reality.
John Barnes who appeared 314 times for the Reds during his time at the club has told reporters that Liverpool are only getting better and better because they have got the team spirit needed in any football team.

Same big money invested into other clubs have been invested into Liverpool but they appear better off than a staggering Man United who risk relegation and a defensive disorganized Arsenal that has gone 7 games with out a win.
Klop’s Liverpool is noted as Champions League winners and probably soon, Premier League winners as the German already knows what competition is like in England after lately losing the Premier League trophy to Manchester City last season.
“Liverpool haven’t got better players than Manchester United or Arsenal or Tottenham.
“What they have is more harmony, more belief, togetherness, and belief in the manager.” The Liverpool legend toldThe Offside Rule Exclusive.
“Of course, I’ll be happy to win the league on 90 points this year, but I won’t say that this is a better season than last season, if we lose three games and win the league on 90 points,” He added.
Despite having certain defensive drawbacks this season, Liverpool are clearly not better than they were last season but have managed to stay 9 points clear defending champions, probably because of the team-spirit Barnes was monologuing
“It’s an exciting time because we have now given Jurgen support. We trust him and we always have,” he continued.
“When you have that harmony and togetherness, the fans, the Liverpool family or football family, generally speaking, you can succeed.”
Liverpool get ready to welcome Brighton & Holve Albion on Saturday (see full premier league match list for saturday) when they look to extend their lead towards ending their 30-year curse after Klop was recently added to the League Managers Association’s Hall of Fame, alongside League rival, Pep Guardiola.
