Sami Hyypia believes Liverpool should be aiming to win both the Premier League and the Champions League.
The former Reds centre back believes the mentality among the players will to be to “go one better” in Europe while challenging at the very top of the Premier League is conducive for bringing the best out of talented footballers.
Hyypia told the Liverpool Echo that the signings Jurgen Klopp made in the summer should be able to push the club onto major honours.
The former Reds defender told the Liverpool Echo: “We were in the final of the Champions League last year and the mindset will be to go one step further.
“We made some great additions to the squad last summer and the team is looking even stronger. There’s no reason why we can’t go all the way this time around.
“Just because Liverpool are doing so well in the Premier League that doesn’t mean that the Champions League becomes less important.
“It’s going to be tough but it’s possible. You want to keep challenging for both trophies for as long as possible. It makes it more interesting for the supporters. This is what they want – seeing their team competing for the two biggest trophies.”
