Moore: 'Pool back where they belong'
Liverpool chief executive Peter Moore insists the club are back where they belong and his task now is to ensure manager Jurgen Klopp gets the funds he needs to keep them there.
The 63-year-old has seen the club break two transfer world records and reach the Champions League final for the first time in 11 years. They made Virgil van Dijk the most expensive defender in history in January and paid £65million this summer for Alisson Becker, which was a record price for a goalkeeper - until Chelsea subsequently surpassed it with their purchase of Kepa Arrizabalaga.
Increasing commercial success off the pitch, plus an expanded Anfield capacity, means there is more money available to allow Liverpool to compete for the world's best players and Moore admits it is his responsibility to ensure that continues.
"I think we are back where we belong," Moore said. "There is a banner on the Kop which says 'European Royalty' and that is who we were, who we are and no one wants Liverpool in Europe right now."
