Liverpool's German manager Jurgen Klopp gestures on the touchline during the English Premier League football match between Swansea City and Liverpool at The Liberty Stadium in Swansea, south Wales on January 22, 2018.

"Improvement means playing better football, being more consistent and entertaining the crowd in a very specific way - We are Liverpool and we stand for football".

At 28, with a year left to run on his Liverpool contract, Sturridge is entering a crucial stage of his career, but he told ESPN FC that he is using the example of Drogba as inspiration for what can lie ahead in his thirties.

Jürgen Klopp has opened up on Liverpool's Champions League final defeat for the first time and described Sergio Ramos as acting like a brutal wrestler when injuring Mohamed Salah in Kiev.

"We can not only go for a 1-0 here, 1-0 there-I know if you win silverware in the end then people are probably happy, but the whole year was still rubbish".

With the world's most expensive goalkeeper Alisson his fourth and likely to be final signing of the summer Klopp will be looking to trim his squad over the next couple of weeks.

Indeed, according to the Telegraph, Karius had no idea Liverpool were signing Alisson and found out the same way fans did. I think he's a great guy.

And although Alisson's arrival nearly certainly means Karius will now be confined to to the substitutes' bench, Klopp has insisted he still has full faith in the 25-year-old and fellow stopper Simon Mignolet.

As a possible back-up option and quality competition for places for Van Dijk and Lovren, he could be a sensible addition for Liverpool as they look to build a squad capable of competing on various fronts next season and beyond. "You have to win.", Mourinho said. Usually out there if you try something you will get punished. You take the rough with the smooth.

"I'm not sure it is an experience we will have again - go there and put an elbow to the goalkeeper, put their goalscorer down like a wrestler in midfield and then you win the game". That's 100 percent like this, ' he said.
