Jurgen Klopp: Liverpool will go again after Champions League final loss

Liverpool transfer news £35m Xherdan Shaqiri claim made by Sky Sports pundit

"I came here to try to win titles", he says.

The former Basel, Bayern Munich and Inter Milan winger is upbeat about how things will go at Liverpool this season, who launch their Premier League campaign at Anfield today against West Ham.

"It is no problem", insisted the Liverpool manager in an exclusive interview with Soccer Saturday. We want to be, it's clear for ages, champions of England. It is a long time ago and a waste of time having that in your mind.

"Could we go to a final again?"

The Brazilian midfielder joined from Monaco during the off-season to bolster Klopp's midfield, but the 24-year-old could be force to wait to make his debut.

"We can not ignore that when trying to redefine Klopp as some kind of chequebook manager, or Liverpool's American owners as Roman Abramovich-style benefactors", Carragher said when asked about the Coutinho money.

"And apart from catching balls, that helps massively. And obviously he has that".

Parker Solar Probe launch delayed until Sunday
The goal for the Parker Solar Probe is to make 24 passes through the corona during its seven-year mission. EDT (13:03 IST) from Cape Canaveral in Florida on Saturday.

And Jamie Carragher believes this could be a rare window for his boyhood club to stake their claim in the Premier League and win the trophy for the first time in Liverpool's history.

Klopp has not considered offering his Egypt forward advice on how to repeat those record-breaking exploits.

Shaqiri, who played in this summer's World Cup for Switzerland, stresses that Klopp now has strength in depth at his disposal after a summer spending spree to supplement what be already had - a team good enough to reach the Champions League Final just three months ago.

"So why should I tell him?"

"I do not go to him every day and give him advice on how he scores 54 goals next season as actually I have no clue". People expect that we win, and we expect the same, but we know that between now and then there are 95 brutal minutes, and we have to be ready for that.

Liverpool have assigned new goalkeeper Alisson Becker the No. 13 squad number for the upcoming campaign, while Loris Karius continues to occupy the No. 1 shirt. Far be it from Klopp to stand still, mind: Liverpool's net summer spend of £162.5million is more than double that of Chelsea, the next most profligate.
