Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp gives two word answer when asked how to build on success


Liverpool finished second in the Premier League last season while winning the Champions League.

They got the new campaign off to a flying start with a 4-1 win over Norwich on Friday night.

The Reds now head to Istanbul on Wednesday night to face Chelsea in the UEFA Super Cup.

And Klopp believes the secret to success is all in the mind.

“Stay greedy,” Klopp said when asked what is needed to build.

“That’s very important – I have no doubt about that, but it’s clear that we have to do that.

“After the 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, at least.

“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. That’s how it is.”

The clash with Chelsea will be the first time Klopp has contested the Super Cup.

Before the Champions League final win over Tottenham in June, Klopp had been beaten in three European finals.

He lost the Champions League final as Borussia Dortmund manager, while also being beaten by Real Madrid as Reds boss.

Klopp also lost the Europa League final while in charge of Liverpool so is looking forward to playing a Super Cup match.

He added: “The Super Cup itself is not a cup that I’ve really loved to watch in the past because I was often in [either the Champions League or Europa League] final.

“The Super Cup is obviously the final proof; if you are not in that game, it means you didn’t win the final.

“That’s completely different this year, so we’re looking forward to it. It’s a big one, it’s a wonderful city.”
