Sven-Goran Eriksson hopes Liverpool can win the Premier League this season.
Eriksson, the former England and Manchester City manager, has admitted that he wants Liverpool to win the league.
Liverpool are currently level on points with champions Manchester City and Chelsea, but Eriksson hopes the club he supports can go all the way.
“A lot of people are saying that maybe it is time for Liverpool. I hope so because in my heart I’m a Liverpool fan. But I think Manchester City are still very strong.
“I liked Liverpool last season. They played very good football, very optimistic, working very hard, very impressive.
“They bought some new players so they look very strong. Sooner or later they will win it, no? I hope it will be sooner.”
Sven left City by mutual consent after finishing ninth in the 2007-08 season, his only season in charge of the Manchester club.
