& # 39; We must win trophies to be a successful team & # 39 ;: Andy Robertson is convinced that Liverpool must triumph in the Champions League final against Tottenham in Madrid
- Liverpool is preparing for Tottenham in the final of the Champions League
- Jurgen Klopp has been trying to win his first trophy since he is the boss
- Defender Andy Robertson rejected comparisons with the club's biggest players
Defender Andy Robertson insists that current players are only focused on winning trophies and not writing their names alongside Liverpool greats.
Victory at Tottenham in Madrid would result in a sixth European Cup on Saturday – only Real Madrid and AC Milan would have more – but the leader of Scotland squandered the earnings they deserve due to the season they had.
For that reason, he stressed that they should be ruthless against Tottenham in the Wanda Metropolitano, because they pushed Manchester City all the way in a record-breaking title race in which they lost only once, but seven times against teams such as Leicester, West Ham and Everton .
Andy Robertson believes that the Liverpool Champions League must win to be considered successful
& # 39; We let other people think about it as soon as we win and if they want to put our name next to (the club's greats), then it is, & # 39; said the left back.
& # 39; We just think we have to win trophies to be a successful team, whether it's Saturday or next season or the season after, we won't stop trying.
& # 39; This club, its size and these fans deserve trophies. We know how hard it is to produce, we discovered that this season, but hopefully we can take that final step and get the first trophy for the team and the manager. & # 39;
Robertson himself said that the status of the club justifies a return to winning more silverware – they have not noticed because of their efforts since the lifting of the League Cup in 2012 – he accepts that sentimentality has no influence on success.
The side of Jurgen Klopp was impressed by pushing City in defense of their title, with their 97 points highest scored by a runner-up, and they were unlucky not to end their 29-year drought title.
But the Reds defender said no one in the camp thought it was unjust to end the campaign without a trophy.
The leftist called on his teammates to be ruthless to defeat Tottenham in Madrid
& # 39; I've heard a few people say that, but for me we don't earn anything yet. The Premier League shows that, & he added.
& # 39; Many people would say that 97 points earn the Premier League, but that didn't happen because Manchester City got 98. They were slightly better than us in the end.
& # 39; We earn nothing, just what we put into the game and what we get out of it. If we have 100 percent effort and a good game, play at our best, then we deserve it.
& # 39; But we are not going to think in the game that we deserve it because we have had a good season and achieved 97 points. Never. That would be stupid of us.
& # 39; We have been relentless this season and we must be relentless again.
& # 39; But I have followed Tottenham for the past three or four years under (manager Mauricio) Pochettino and they are also a relentless team.
& # 39; At the top of the Premier League you must be ruthless. Just to get into the top four is difficult. If we can include that in our game, I think we have enough to win it, but we have to prove it.
& # 39; We must show the team that the last 10 months of the season has been played. & # 39;
The Scotland captain was part of the team that was defeated by Real Madrid in the 2018 final
Robertson is one of nine players who appeared on Real Madrid in the last defeat of last year and will probably start in the weekend.
His response to the loss 12 months ago was to go out and buy a barbeque on the team's return to Merseyside the day after the final because he had a group of 27 friends and family to look after his Formby home.
However, he does not intend to plan a similar shopping trip this year.
& # 39; Yes, hopefully we no longer have that nonsense! I still have that barbecue, so there's no need to go to Homebase, & he joked.
& # 39; But of course we hope for much happier feelings. Last year was a huge disappointment, there is no hidden from it.
& # 39; Hopefully we feel better this time, but we know what we have to work hard to achieve. If we can do that, it will be a better party. & # 39;
