Liverpool star bullish on club’s Champions League hopes – ‘It will be a different story next season!’

first_imgLiverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet has told talkSPORT he is confident the team’s experiences in European football this year will help them enjoy greater success next season.The Reds secured a Champions League spot for the first time in four seasons with a second-place finish to the Premier League last term.But their dreams of a sixth European title were ended at the group stages following a disappointing campaign, winning just one of their six games.Manager Brendan Rodgers insisted his side were aiming to go all the way after dropping down into the Europa League, but their short stay in Europe’s second-tier concluded in penalty shoot-out misery against high-flying Turkish outfit Besiktas.But Belgian shot-stopper Mignolet insists the young Liverpool squad will build on their first taste of the European stage and emerge as a stronger outfit next time around.He told Drivetime: “With all the young players we have, I think this year was very good experience to feature in Europe for the first time.“I think all those players now know what it’s about and hopefully we can compete in the Champions League again next year, we’ll certainly do our best to get there.“It will be a different story next season.”First, however, they have the task of winning a hotly contested battle for the top four.Liverpool made up major ground on the chasing pack with a stunning 2-1 triumph over defending champions Manchester City on Sunday, a win which took their unbeaten league run to 11 games.Three points at Anfield lifted them into fifth place, with the Reds now just two points adrift of fourth-placed Manchester United.And Mignolet insists the Merseysiders have to maintain their impressive form until the end of the season to make sure of their place.“After a result like Sunday, beating Manchester City at home, the team’s confidence is very high,” the Reds glovesman added.“Every single year there is a fight for the top four and the Champions League places, that’s why it’s such a good league, there is huge competition.“But there are still a lot of big teams to play from now until the end of the season, so it’s definitely still all to play for.“It’s not just the games against the big teams, all the games until the end of the season are important to get the points we need to make sure we’re there.“Things are going well in the Premier league and we’re still in the FA Cup as well, so we’re fighting on different fronts still, so it will be an exciting end to the season.”last_img read more
