Jurgen Klopp wants his Liverpool side to "stay greedy" as they look to build on last season’s Champions League success.


The Merseyside club beat Tottenham in June to win the European crown but were unable to replicate the triumph in the Premier League, with Manchester City lifting the title on the last day of the 2018-19 season.


The Reds beat newly promoted side Norwich 4-1 on Friday night to start the new season in flying colours as they hope to land the title for the first time since 1990.

Speaking ahead of their Super Cup game with Chelsea, Klopp told uefa.com what they need to do to build on their success from last season.


He said: "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."
