Former Red Simon Mignolet has been full of praise in regards to the form that Liverpool have shown this season.

The Reds are currently 22 points clear at the top of the Premier League table, which means it is likely that the club will break its 30-year league title drought come May.

In the past seven months, Jurgen Klopp’s side have won the UEFA Champions League, UEFA Super Cup and the FIFA Club World Cup.

Mignolet, who departed Anfield last summer for Club Brugge, has stated that he hopes his former team can win the Premier League title as soon as possible.

He also stated that there is absolutely no reason why Liverpool can’t dominate English football for a long period of time.

“Why not? It started when I was still there and was only heading in one direction,” Mignolet told the Mirror.

“Last season we won the Champions League and winning that first trophy was very important for the dressing-room.

“Once you have that in the bag, you build on it. The hunger is even greater to win trophies and you want to get your hands on the next one.”

Mignolet added: “The stability is there and, if you’ve got so much quality up front, with Sadio [Mane], Mo [Salah] and Roberto [Firmino], then you’re incredibly strong.

“They are still a relatively young team, and you also see what the reserves did in the FA Cup, so the basis is there to build for the long-term.

“I knew Liverpool would be challenging for trophies again, but what they’re doing this season is unbelievable and I hope they can win the league as quickly as possible.”

It is great to hear Mignolet speak so highly of his former club. It would have been frustrating for him in his last couple of seasons at the club, but it is obvious he is not bitter about the whole situation.

As Mignolet said, hopefully the Reds can wrap up the Premier League title soon. Liverpool’s next Premier League clash is against Norwich City at Carrow Road this weekend.
