"[Liverpool] has clearly been working in the transfer market and they have brought in a few quality players. I still keep in contact with Pepe and Steve Gerrard. They are looking forward to this season with the new additions. With those players - and, more importantly - the stability at the club, they will be in the top four at the end of the season. It’s where the club belongs. People still talk about that Champions League victory and that’s the sort of night Liverpool should be experiencing more regularly."
