Gini Wijnaldum says he has returned to Liverpool “hungry” for more success after winning the Champions League last month.

The 28-year-old scored a brace in the semi-final second leg against Barcelona to help Jurgen Klopp’s side each the final in Madrid, where they beat Spurs 2-0 to clinch a sixth European Cup.

“Because I know how it feels right now, I want it again,” Wijnaldum told “That’s why I came back hungry, the guys also came back hungry to achieve even more.

“It’s a good feeling and it’s the feeling you want to get used to, winning trophies like that. That’s why everyone is hungry to do even better this year and win more.”

The Reds’ No.5 added: “It was a good vacation I had. I had a lot more days than the years before.

“You always look forward to coming back and especially because we won the Champions League, you want more this season. So you’re really hungry to start.

“It’s a really big club. Everywhere you go people know Liverpool. On my vacation a lot of people came to me and congratulated me for the Champions League.

“Sometimes you don’t realise how big the club is; the club is in Europe but even when you travel abroad to Asia or America you see how big this club is because a lot of people support Liverpool and a lot of people know the club.”
