The Reds owner wants to end the 30-year drought for a league trophy after lifting the UEFA Champions League title last season.

Liverpool lifted the UEFA Champions League title last season, after defeating Tottenham Hotspur at Wanda Metropolitano stadium.

But the team couldn’t repeat this success at home, where they finished one point behind champions Manchester City.

Which is why owner John W. Henry knows the team will now look to win at home, to end a 30-year drought.

“To me winning in Europe is bigger than winning in England but I think it’s true the fans want it,” Henry’s words were echoed by The Daily Mail.

“I know we’re going to be focused on winning the Premier League next year.”

He explained: “We need to get healthy. We need AOC (Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain) back, we need a healthy (Adam) Lallana.”

“It’s not up to me but I would guess we will see more of Divock (Origi) next year. I think he brings something special, he comes with power and speed and brings in scoring.”

“I feel really good about next year,” he said.

“Our guys gave it their all from the first day of the season to the last.”

“It’s a long season, they played up to their capabilities and just gave so much effort,” he added.

“It didn’t matter who the opponent was, they out-ran every opponent and I felt they deserved to walk away with a trophy.”

“We walked away with the biggest one so I’m very happy,” the Liverpool owner concluded.
