My grandfather supported Liverpool... Russia U-21 defender dreams of playing in England Transfers

From the late 1970s to the early 1980s, Liverpool reached the top of the Champions Cup (now Champions League) three times and established a golden era with the likes of Kenny Dalglish and Ian Rush.

But since then they have failed to achieve consistent results, winning the Champions League However, the club has since failed to produce consistent results, winning the Champions League and achieving one-off glories such as the Champions League title, but has lacked continuity.

However, manager Jurgen Klopp, who took over in 2015, has turned that trend around. He has led them to the top of the English Premier League for the first time in 30 years, three Champions League finals, the FA Cup, the League Cup, and all the other titles they can take.

Because of the history of the team, many players are attracted to Liverpool. Russian U-21 defender Viktor Alexandrov is one of those who feel a kinship with the club, and he has stated that his grandfather was a Liverpool supporter.

“My dream is to go to England,”

“My godfather is a football fan. He supported Spartak and Liverpool. I have always been somehow closer to the British (team).”

“100 per cent (I want to move to Western Europe), but not in the league of the level of Latvia, with all due respect.”

“I would like to go to Belgium, Holland or Austria. It doesn’t matter (which). There, the level is excellent.”

At the moment, it is difficult for him to play in the Premier League, let alone Liverpool. First of all, he would like to move to a country like Belgium, where he can at least compete in the Europa League and, as the Russian U-21 defender mentioned, has a good development program.

He is only 21 years old and could play in England in his mid-20s. He moves to the aforementioned league, grabs a starting position right away, spends a few seasons there, and steps up. It’s a very neat process, but can Viktor Alexandrov make his dream a reality…?
