Dejan Lovren asks Klopp to follow Barcelona’s 20 trophies win example

Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren has pretty much asked Jurgen Klopp to bag 20 titles for Liverpool – much like Pep Guardiola did for Barcelona.

Pep’s record of bagging 14 trophies in a single season for Barcelona was astounding and Lovren wants the Liverpool boss to do the same.

“I’ve been there from the beginning with Jurgen and it took quite a while, two or three years to build everything up,” Lovren told Sky Sports.

“Let’s say, we clicked this year – maybe even last year – but we missed out by one point.

“Now we understand each other, what we need, what we want.

“And I especially want, that we are remembered maybe like the Barcelona team that won in four years [something like] 20 trophies.

“Why should we not do that? I think we can do it.

“And I want that we are remembered as one of the best teams that have played – not only for this year, but for many, many years.”

“It’s a privilege to be in the dressing-room and to see smiley faces, but it’s not just about smiley faces – it’s about how we are still reacting on the training ground,” Lovren added.

“We are still hungry, still greedy and this is what makes us special to be honest.

“I think many other teams would go easy now with a 22-point lead but we don’t look at these 22 points.

“We are just focused game-by-game and this I think is the simplest way to be the best.

“It is a good experience for the younger ones, to understand that even if you are on top you still need to work as hard as if you were in the middle of the table or in last position.”
