Juergen Klopp admits to pressure of winning trophies at Liverpool

first_imgLiverpool manager Juergen Klopp said that he can feel the pressure of winning trophies this season after making promising signings during the summer transfer window.Klopp, who is set to undertake his third full season at Liverpool, has failed to win a single trophy despite the progress made overall at Merseyside.”You’re right and people will say that it is the next step. We need to be ready for that. I know about the expectations and that’s completely normal. First of all we have to play the football that gives us an opportunity to win something. We cannot talk about winning something before we start the season,” Klopp told reporters in New York during a press-conference ahead of their pre-season match against Manchester City.Liverpool last won a league in the 1989-90 season while the club’s last major trophy was the 2011-12 League Cup. Under Klopp, Liverpool have played three finals, including this year’s Champions League and have lost all three. Before the Champions League final, Klopp’s men lost in the 2016 League Cup final to City and the 2016 Europa League final to Sevilla.Also read – Alisson likely to make Liverpool debut in friendly against NapoliLiverpool ended the Premier League season fourth, 25 points behind winners City, and the squad’s lack of depth was exposed as the campaign played out.Naby Keïta #NK8’s best bits from our #ICC2018 opener in 60 seconds… pic.twitter.com/FKWi0LDT2yLiverpool FC (@LFC) July 23, 2018The German has made four signings since, adding goalkeeper Alisson from AS Roma, midfielder Naby Keita from RB Leipzig, defensive midfielder Fabinho from Monaco and winger Xherdan Shaqiri from Stoke City.advertisementKlopp hopes the signings will help the squad better cope with the intense style of play he demands and that his team can improve on last season’s record of 12 Premier League draws.”It’s not just that we have to be more consistent, we have to create circumstances where we can be more consistent,” the 51-year-old added. “Nobody is consistent with 11 players. What we are working on is the depth of the squad because you need it.”We expect more from ourselves. We will go again for the championship and each kind of cup, but that does not mean I can sit here and we will get it. We have the highest ambitions, 100 percent.”Liverpool continue their pre-season against Manchester City in the International Champions Cup in East Rutherford, New Jersey on Wednesday.(With inputs from Reuters)last_img read more
