After waiting nearly four years for his first trophy as Liverpool boss, Jurgen Klopp is determined to add a second at the earliest opportunity.
Liverpool have had a winless pre-season and Klopp is keen to beat Manchester City in the Community Shield on Sunday.
‘It’s a final,’ he said. ‘This is the first time that I realised that nobody sees it like that to be honest. To call it a “curtain-raiser” is unbelievable.
‘For me, it has nothing to do with the rest of the season. It’s a game and, even if we only have eight players available, I would like to try to win it.’
