Liverpool fan's letter inspired title challenging run

Liverpool started the season looking to just finish in the top four to earn a Champions League berth and the season went better than they had even hoped for. Liverpool was in control of the Premier League title race in early April before stumbling against Chelsea and a draw against Crystal Palace put the title race squarely in the hands of Manchester City.

After the season ended, manager Brendan Rodger shared the story of a supporter who wrote a letter before the season saying he believed Liverpool could challenge for the title.

“I read a letter to the players on the first day of the season from a supporter, who told us about getting into the top four and the pride he has in the club, and not to just think about fourth but to think about winning,” Rodgers said, via the club’s website.

“At the time, the players and the staff thought the letter was maybe a bit far-fetched, but I truly believed that we could progress – and so I read the same letter back again today.

“I think now, the word that will stand out is belief. We now believe that we can be up there challenging. All the young players will be much better for that.”
