Andy Robertson says that Liverpool are eager to win more trophies next season following a 2018/19 season that saw them lift the Champions League.

Liverpool full-back, Andy Robertson says that the club’s Champions League triumph over Tottenham has added more desire to win more trophies.

Jurgen Klopp’s men beat Spurs in the Champions League final in Madrid to end a seven-year wait for some silverware. And Andy Robertson says that now the club has tasted success, everyone is obsessed about winning more trophies next season.

While speaking to the club’s official website, the Scotland international said that the players are eager to continue winning trophies next season.

“We have got massive games from the off: Manchester City at Wembley in the Community Shield,” Robertson told the club’s official website.

“Of course it’s the game just before the season starts but you’re still playing in a massive stadium against one of your biggest rivals. Then we’ve got Chelsea in the Super Cup.

“The biggest one is Norwich for getting the Premier League off to a good start in front of our home fans for the first time since we won the Champions League. That’s what we’ve got to use as motivation now – the winning feeling we had.

“Last season was completely different, we used the disappointment and heartbreak of losing as motivation to not be in that position again. That’s probably why we had so many last-minute winners, big comebacks and things like that.

“This season we need to use that feeling of being on that bus and lifting that trophy to drive us forward. We want more of that feeling. That’ll be in all our minds for the season ahead.”

On a personal level, Andy Robertson is keen on improving on the 13 assists he provided during the league and Champions League.

The Scotchman had a personal competition with Trent Alexander-Arnold and the buccaneering full back says that the two are going to compete again.

“We’ve had a brief discussion over it. We’ll set it up again.

“Probably too much was made of it but for me and Trent it brought the best out of us, the numbers we both produced. Near the back end of the season he was unbelievable with the numbers he produced.

“I feel it brought the best out of both of us. If we can do that and get similar numbers this season, of course it helps the team. That’s what both of us want to do.

“But first and foremost we want to just put in the same performances we put in last season and try to kick on even further.”
