Klopp feels the need for success

Liverpool head coach Jurgen Klopp accepts that he needs to deliver some silverware to be considered a true success at Anfield.

The German has led the Reds to the final of the League Cup, Europa League and Champions League, but they are yet to make that final step during his three-year reign.

We have still time to do something special, we know that.

And Klopp is well aware that he needs to take his team all the way, especially in the Premier League, with Liverpool without a domestic league success for nearly three decades.

He told the Liverpool Echo: "Nobody wants to look back in 10 or 20 years and say the best time we had without winning anything was when Klopp was in, it was so funny, all that stuff. That's not really something you want to achieve.

"We have still time to do something special, we know that. To underline our progress and development, we have to.

"But times have changed. It's much more difficult than it was in the past. We are maybe in the best moment for ages, but a few other clubs have made the same steps and that makes it difficult.

"In most sports, coming second in the Olympics you come home with a silver medal. In football, it's nothing and it's nothing for me as well. I want to win it and I know that's a responsibility."

Liverpool currently lie in third place in the Premier League table, level on points with both reigning champions Manchester City and Chelsea.

The Merseysiders can be backed at 5/2 to be crowned champions this season, with the Citizens available at 4/11 and the Blues 66/1.
