Jurgen Klopp TEAMtalk

Jurgen Klopp has demanded Liverpool “stay greedy” as they look to build on last season’s Champions League triumph with more trophy success.

Liverpool were pipped to the Premier League title by Manchester City but the Merseysiders went all the way in Europe’s elite club competition, defeating domestic rivals Tottenham in the Madrid final in June.

While that night in the Spanish capital and the aftermath are special memories for Klopp, the Liverpool manager insists they will not dull his side’s hunger as they pursue further honours this season.

Asked what they need to do to build on their success, Klopp told uefa.com: “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.”

While Liverpool enjoyed a big win to open their Premier League account for the seasn, Klopp admits they could have controlled their match against Norwich far better.
