Liverpool full-back Andrew Robertson explained that the club’s hunger for trophies will be driven by the ‘winning feeling’ that has accompanied their Champions League success.
The 25-year-old feels that last season the players used the disappointment and heartbreak as motivators to avoid finding themselves in the same position.
But the club is now motivated by their own success and will look to replicate it in the Community Shield tie against Manchester City and the UEFA Super Cup against Chelsea next month.
“We have got massive games from the off: Manchester City at Wembley in the Community Shield,” Robertson told Liverpool’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.”
