Virgil van Dijk feels Liverpool can challenge for honours on a regular basis in the coming years ahead of Saturday’s Champions League final.
The Reds finished as runners-up in Europe’s top competition last season and have a chance to go one better when they face Premier League rivals Tottenham on Saturday.
Liverpool came agonisingly close to landing the Premier League crown this season as they finished just one point behind champions Manchester City, and Van Dijk feels this is just the start of a successful period for the current Reds squad.
He told the Liverpool Echo: “I think this group of players is special, at least that’s what I’m feeling.
“Hopefully we can stay together for at least another four or five years and achieve so many things with this group.”
Liverpool are 1.95 to beat Spurs in 90 minutes on Saturday and 1.53 to lift the trophy.
The Reds are expected to strengthen in the summer, regardless of whether or not they secure the Champions League title, and Van Dijk is confident any new additions will be able to fit into the squad at Anfield.
He added: “The characters we have in our team, it all fits, it all goes well so far.
“Any additions that we are going to get in the future, I think the club knows how to do that as well and it all clicks.”
Liverpool are 9.00 to win 2-0 and Van Dijk is 8.00 to score at anytime.
