Klopp wants his Reds to retain 'greed' for glory

 

By David Charlesworth

Jurgen Klopp wants Liverpool to "stay greedy" as they look to build on last season's Champions League triumph.

The Reds were pipped to the Premier League title by Manchester City but the Merseysiders went all the way in Europe's elite club competition, defeating Tottenham in the final in June.

Asked what they need to do to build on their success, Klopp said: "Stay greedy. That's very important - I have no doubt about that, but it's clear that we have to do that.

"After the 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."
