The Croatian defender is confident the team can do bigger things than what they did last season in the different competitions they will play in.

Liverpool was running head-to-head with Manchester City for a chance to win the English Premier League title last season.

But the Reds couldn’t win the domestic title and went onto lift the UEFA Champions League trophy instead.

Which is why Croatian defender Dejan Lovren believes the team can handle pressure without a problem.

“With the time we’ve been playing together already and being used to this pressure with all the games week by week – every three days you play for something – we managed,” the defender was quoted by Goal.

“There are quite a lot of players who stayed in this team, which is quite important.”

“If we keep this focus for the next couple of years we can reflect on last season and hopefully win many more trophies,” he added.

“We are a team with special characteristics with fantastic individual players who can change the game in a second.”

“We adapt to everything,” he said.

“It’s an important tour for us, playing against big teams.”

The player explained: “It will be a challenge again to play in the heat and to adapt, there are no easy opponents. But it’s about our character and we are used to it already.”

“It’s brilliant, it’s always a pleasure to come to the States and see so many fans behind us. It’s a privilege to be here.”
