We’ve got so much to do: Joe Gomez

The central-defender believes Liverpool has a lot to do ahead of the 2019-2020 English Premier League campaign.

Liverpool lifted the UEFA Champions League after defeating Tottenham Hotspur in the final match.

But they were just one point behind English Premier League champions Manchester City in the national competition.

Which is why central defender Joe Gomez believes his team still has unfinished business in the Premier League.

“We can be happy and proud of the achievement but we’ve got so much more work to do and so many ways to improve as well,” he told Sky Sports.

“The Premier League was so close and I think that’s all the motivation we need, that we were so close but so far at the same time in the fact that we didn’t get it.”

Gomez explained: “It’s something we want to get this year and to do so we can’t get complacent or dwell on what happened last season, we have to hit the ground running again now.”

“Obviously it is as intense as you’d expect when you first come back, a lot of running and dusting the cobwebs off.”

“But it feels good, it’s nice to be back. It was nice to end on such a high last season and we just want to carry on where we left off and keep the momentum going,” he said.

“I’ve played a number of positions over the years I’ve been here.”

“I like to excel in one and nail that spot but I’m happy to play wherever for the team and the manager,” he continued.

“It’s just about development in whatever way I can and doing all the extra bits I can to develop off the pitch as well as on it. Hopefully, things fall into place.”
