Klopp urges Liverpool to ‘stay greedy’ for more trophies

Jurgen Klopp has urged Liverpool to ‘stay greedy’ as they look to build on last season’s Champions League triumph.

Liverpool were pipped to the English Premier League title by Manchester City – but went all the way in Europe’s elite club competition, beating Spurs in the final in June.

But the Anfield boss insists his team still ‘have a hunger’ for more trophies this season.

He told ‘Stay greedy. That’s very important – I have no doubt about that, but it’s clear that we have to do that.

‘After the Champions League final we had about four weeks where everybody was patting us on the back and it was brilliant wherever we went.

‘It’s just nice, but in a different world things like this can soften you and it can take the power out of you a bit. We are not like this, but it’s a fact that it could happen.

‘We only have to do the same again, and with a couple of things we maybe didn’t do too well, we have to do better.

‘Knowing that something works out helps you to believe that it’ll work out again, 100 per cent.

‘That helps when I try to convince the boys that anything is possible. Thank God I’m not the only one in the dressing room who thinks that these things are possible, and that helps a lot.’

Liverpool can add another trophy to their collection on Wednesday when they take on Europa League winners and Premier League rivals Chelsea in the Super Cup final at the Vodafone Park in Istanbul.

Klopp said: ‘The Super Cup itself is not a cup that I’ve really loved to watch in the past because I was often the beaten finalist in the Champions League or Europa League.

‘The Super Cup is obviously the final proof.

‘If you are not in that game, it means you didn’t win the final. That’s completely different this year, so we’re looking forward to it. It’s a big one.’
