Xherdan Shaqiri says Liverpool are “number one in Europe” after winning the Champions League final on Saturday.

The Swiss international didn’t play in the game against Tottenham in Madrid, though his assist against Barcelona helped Jurgen Klopp’s side progress to the final stage of the tournament.

And Shaqiri claims the Reds have now set their sights on winning the Premier League title next season.

“You can see that we have a great squad with great quality. Even if a player is not playing or he’s injured, the quality is still there,” Shaqiri said.

“It’s not enough to just have good players, we have very good guys off the pitch too. You can only win titles if you are close and work well together.

“We are a very good team and we work hard together every day. I hope we can go on, this is just the start and we can win many more titles.

“So we are the best team. We are number one in Europe, so let’s enjoy this time!”

He added: “This club needs to win titles, and it’s a good start to win this one, no? Now next year we are going to go again and try to win the Premier League.

“That’s my big dream, to win the Premier League with this club.”
