Jurgen Klopp has urged Liverpool to “stay greedy” ahead of Wednesday night’s UEFA Super Cup clash with Chelsea.
The Reds boss warned his players of complacency following last season’s Champions League glory, and played up the importance of picking up their first piece of silverware this season.
When asked what Liverpool must do to build on their success, 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 everyone 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.”
He also played up the importance of picking up their first piece of silverware of the season.
“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.”
