The Reds saw the title elude them in remarkable fashion, as despite recording a club-record 97 points, they finished second behind 98-point Man City.
But speaking ahead of Liverpool’s clash with Tottenham in Madrid, Henry insisted that the league is “an even larger goal” next season, and the owners will make funds available again in order to win the title.
“They are different. It doesn’t make up for it,” the 69-year-old told Sky Sports News, when asked whether a place in the final is sufficient consolation.
“Not winning the Premier League this year means it’s an even larger goal for next year.
“Sort of like going back to the Champions League final this year was something our guys set their minds on.
“We’ll be set on winning next year. We’re going to have a go, and we’re strong already.
“Every year—we haven’t gone through that process yet, because we’re still playing—but every year we’ve shown we’re willing to invest in the right kind of player and do it the right way so the club is sustainable.”
This would leave three gaps in the squad in terms of backup personnel, but as seen last summer, the Reds are willing to invest to improve on the starting roles too.
Of course this is merely speculation at this stage, and the focus remains on the final, but Henry’s comments are certainly encouraging.
Interestingly, he added that FSG feel they are “maybe halfway through” their work at the club.
