Liverpool chairman Tom Werner insists “the best is yet to come” as Liverpool celebrates its 125th anniversary this weekend.
Speaking to a special LFCTV 125-year anniversary programme entitled ‘What LFC means to me’, which premieres on Saturday evening, Werner insists that Liverpool’s future is brighter than ever.
“I think our happiest times are still yet to come, the future is extremely bright,” Werner said.
“The club now has a remarkable manager who is world class, we have a number of world class players on the team.
“We’re going to be building a new (training) facility at Kirkby, where we’re combining the first team with the Academy.
“We continue to strive every day to make the club stronger and better.”
FSG have taken criticism from a number of supporters during their 7-year tenure at the club, but Werner recalls the first moment he first stepped out at Anfield with fondness.
“I was aware of Liverpool as a football fan and I knew its unique history, but the first time I entered Anfield it was an extraordinary moment.
“To see that pitch and to see the Kop, at that moment I thought I was part of something quite special.
“I take enormous pride being involved with Liverpool, it’s a global family.
“I could be anywhere around the world and I will find a Liverpool supporter who will share his experiences and talk about the next match.
“We know we’re part of something special and something that’s unique.”
Werner will celebrate seven years as Reds chairman in October, following a summer which promises to be full of twists and turns as Liverpool look to strengthen their squad in order to compete on four fronts next season, both domestically and abroad.
