LIVERPOOL (Reuters) – Liverpool are working hard towards their aim of winning the Premier League title, manager Juergen Klopp has said.
The Merseyside club were in early title contention last season, just six points behind leaders Chelsea at the halfway stage, but faded in January to finish 17 points behind the champions in fourth place.
“Yes, we will be playing for the championship,” Klopp told reporters.
“We don’t start a season by not having any ambitions. We have to have our goals and I think we have a very good team now. We did have a bit of bad luck last season. I think we can play a little bit better.
“Let’s hope everything will work very well and that there isn’t much more to improve. We have to work very hard on it and we’re doing that.”
