Liverpool FC star Georginio Wijnaldum sends title warning to Man City
Liverpool FC star Georginio Wijnaldum believes winning the Champions League can help the Reds in their league title challenge
Georginio Wijnaldum believes that Liverpool FC’s Champions League success will help their Premier League title challenge this season.
The Reds are looking to win their first Premier League title after Jurgen Klopp’s side finished in second place in the table last term.
Liverpool FC ended up in runners-up spot and a point adrift of champions Manchester City last season despite losing just one game in the whole campaign.
Although the Reds missed out on a first Premier League title, Liverpool FC won the Champions League thanks to a 2-0 win against Tottenham Hotspur.
Klopp’s side have made a strong start to the Premier League season after collecting four successive victories to secure top spot in the table.
The Merseyside outfit have eased to victories over Norwich City, Southampton, Arsenal and Burnley.
Wijnaldum believes Liverpool FC are more equipped to win the Premier League title this season after their Champions League experience.
“Winning the Champions League has given us all peace of mind,” Wijnaldum is quoted as saying by the Daily Mirror.
“Now we know what it’s like to win the biggest trophy of them all – and we just want to keep going from here and add even more titles.
“But Jurgen Klopp is not putting extreme pressure on us to win the Premier League. He does not tell us, ‘Now you must win this or that trophy’. He is very relaxed.
“He did not do that during the past season, either. His idea is that we get the maximum out of every individual every single day that we are together. And then we will see where that brings us at the end of the season.
“Just look at the list of world-class players who have not won the Champions League during their careers. It contains more famous names than you would think – and it tells you that it is really special we have won it with Liverpool.”
Liverpool FC managed to beat Bayern Munich, FC Porto and FC Barcelona en route to the Champions League crown last term.
The Reds will take on Newcastle United at Anfield in the Premier League on Saturday 14 September.
Liverpool FC haven’t won the Premier League title but have finished in second place in 2002, 2009, 2014 and 2018.
Klopp signed Sepp van den Berg, Harvey Elliott and Adrian in the summer window.
