Dejan Lovren believes Liverpool will continue to challenge for major trophies under Jurgen Klopp because they “can only improve.”
The Croatian centre-back has played a bit-part role in recent months with injuries hampering his presence in the Reds’ starting XI.
However, Lovren is looking forward to seeing what’s ahead and thinks his side are just getting started as they prepare to face Tottenham in the Champions League final.
“When you look back on the last three years, it was every season improvement,” he told Liverpoolfc.com.
“When Klopp came, every year we did better and better. Last season we did quite well, we had quite a lot of injuries and reached the final of the Champions League.
“This year, with the new players, we reached second place with 97 points, it’s incredible, and again the final of the Champions League so definitely we are again one of the contenders for next year to do something great. With this team, we can only improve.
“We are still young so we learn every day something new and this is what matters: to keep this team all together in one place and of course, if there are new improvements to come, I mean new players, they are always welcomed. But when you look at the quality, it’s really already quite high.”
On falling just short of the Premier League crown, Lovren added: “It would be a lie if I don’t admit that we are of course disappointed.
“We won the last game at Anfield but when we came to the dressing room it felt strange. We had so many points, 97, we made history for this club when we talk about points but when you look back we can be satisfied.
“We gave everything this season, it was a brilliant season – especially [at] Anfield and I think the fans really enjoyed it, especially the game against Barca. So, at the end we have another final and I’m sure we will come back with big smiles.”
