Liverpool boos Jurgen Klopp wants his side to be greedy in pursuit of trophies as they try to build on their Champions League success.
The Reds opened the new campaign with a 4-1 victory over Norwich at Anfield and they face Chelsea on Wednesday in a UEFA Super Cup tie in Istanbul.

Klopp has urged the Reds to show ruthlessness once again this season as they seek more titles.

Speaking to UEFA’s official website of Wednesday’s game, Klopp 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.”

While the Merseysiders strolled to a comfortable win against Norwich, their next opponents Chelsea were humiliated 4-0 at Old Trafford on Sunday.

The Blues lost talisman Eden Hazard to Real Madrid this summer and new boss Lampard has to count on players already at the club following their two window transfer ban.

Klopp added:

“It’s a final, but the big difference between the Champions League final and this game is that it’s a new season, a different opponent.

“I think Chelsea have changed a lot: a new manager, Eden Hazard is not there anymore.”
