Liverpool were crowned European champions over the summer by winning the biggest trophy in club football, the UEFA Champions League.
And midfielder Gini Wijnaldum believes that this triumph will push the Reds to win even more titles in the coming years.
The Dutch international does admit that Jurgen Klopp doesn’t demand titles from the players, but he does push them to their limits on the field.
“Winning the Champions League has given us all peace of mind. Now we know what it’s like to win the biggest trophy of them all – and we just want to keep going from here and add even more titles,” he’s quoted as saying by the Mirror.
“But Jurgen Klopp is not putting extreme pressure on us to win the Premier League. He does not tell us, ‘Now you must win this or that trophy’. He is very relaxed.
“He did not do that during the past season, either. His idea is that we get the maximum out of every individual every single day that we are together. And then we will see where that brings us at the end of the season.
“Just look at the list of world-class players who have not won the Champions League during their careers. It contains more famous names than you would think – and it tells you that it is really special we have won it with Liverpool.”
You can certainly tell that Wijnaldum has a lot of respect for the boss, with his comments here; the way he talks about wining the biggest trophy in football shows his love for the club too.
Gini seems to be hinting at the Reds challenging for the Premier League title this season – which should be perceived as a fierce warning by Manchester City.
Klopp has a way of getting what he wants in the end – let’s hope the biggest domestic prize is the next thing on that list!
