Liverpool legend Ian Rush says the negative feelings around the club that were in place earlier in the summer have gone and feels the players and fans are upbeat ahead of the forthcoming Premier League season.
Liverpool were left disappointed after a poor season on and off the pitch, causing complete disillusionment amongst the players and supporters.
New boss Roy Hodgson has unveiled three signings since replacing Rafa Benitez as Reds manager, welcoming Joe Cole, Milan Jovanovic and Danny Wilson to Merseyside.
And with speculation mounting that the club’s financial troubles could be about to be solved by a new investor and the new season fast approaching, Hodgson says things are looking sunny at Anfield once again.
“Three or four weeks ago everything connected with the club was so negative,” said Rush, the former Liverpool and Wales striker.
“But Roy Hodgson has come in and helped to transform the mood. He has already proved what a good manager he is.
“With Joe Cole signing, Steven Gerrard committing his future and now Torres following suit it’s been a great few weeks for the club.
“Now there’s a positive buzz and the supporters are optimistic about the new season.”
