Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp 'greedy for success' in Capital One Cup final
Jurgen Klopp admits he's "greedy for success" as the Liverpool boss targets Capital One Cup final glory.
Liverpool meet Manchester City at Wembley on Sunday with the season's first piece of major silverware at stake, with Klopp able to lift a trophy little more than four months after taking the reins at Anfield.
And Klopp, who won two Bundesliga title and the DFB-Pokal when in charge of Borussia Dortmund, is eager to taste success early in his Liverpool tenure.
"I am long enough in the business to know I am greedy for success," Klopp told the Liverpool Echo.
"For sure we will go to the final and try and achieve this. It is more important for the club, the crowd and the players.
"Lot of managers work their whole life and never get the chance to win trophies. After a short time we have that chance.
"Of course I would enjoy it with all I have. Everybody will give their all.
"Clubs with a big history like Liverpool, it is always the same problem if they are not successful in the present. With the right decisions and then the right patience you can get back on track.
"With all the big clubs around with a lot of money, we should not go the same way, we have to go our way, how Liverpool always did.
"This win would help. It would help to win the Capital One Cup but it is not the only possibility for everyone to believe in this way."
Even if Liverpool do lift the trophy, Klopp knows that performing well in the Premier League is important.
"If we win it and at the end we are ninth in the league because we didn't play well then I can't think 'but we won the Capital One Cup.' That is too long ago," he added.
"We still have a few things to do. We can go in the last eight of the Europa League. Why should I think about eighth or ninth? I think we can still get fifth, can't we?
"We have now the chance to win the final. We can beat Man City in the league at home and we can beat Crystal Palace. That is all possible."
