Emre Can has been talking about the squad’s hopes for the new season.
The big kick-off is now less than a week away, with Liverpool’s season starting at 4pm BST on Sunday with a trip to North London to face Arsenal at the Emirates.
The German international says silverware is the goal.
“If you play for a club like Liverpool, it’s such a big club, then it’s always a target to win silverware and that has to be our target this year,” he said (via official site)
“I am very excited [for the new season]. Everyone is a good player, everyone we have bought is good and they have showed that in pre-season, and we did as well against Barcelona.”
He also promised that fans would not be treated to a repeat of the Mainz shambles next weekend:
“You can say we’re tired but that’s no reason to play like that and we know we can do better,” he claimed.
“We want to play better next week, of course, and we have one more week to prepare well for the game.”
We lost 4-0 in a lacklustre display, though Klopp said the the performance could be put down to tiredness and injuries (via Echo).
