Liverpool boss Jürgen Klopp wants his players to get an addiction to glory after finally having a taste of triumph in the Champions League final.
The German’s last silverware came in 2014 when Borussia Dortmund won the DFL Supercup. In the following years, Klopp narrowly missed chances of Europa League, League Cup and Champions League at Anfield.
Finishing as runners-up in all three competitions, the Reds finally achieved victory under his leadership when they defeated Tottenham 2-0 in Madrid at the Champions League final in June.
The German was relieved with the ending to his drought of silverware.
“It was actually better than I expected, to be honest, because it was long ago that I won something so I didn’t know exactly how it feels anymore”
“Of course we move on. It’s not that wherever we go it’s like, ‘Morning, we won the Champions League!’. But why should we forget it?”
“It’s just something that should give the boys more confidence – that’s important. But if you only use confidence you have no chance, but nobody should worry about this team.”
“It’s not about being finally satisfied, happy or done with our careers because we won the Champions League, there is so much to go for.”
“We smelled really how it feels – we played the final, we won the final, we came into the city, we saw the city and saw the people. That’s something you can get addicted to, you want to have that much more often.” Klopp told Liverpool’s official website.
