Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson has declared the Reds desire more than just to regain their Premier League title, insisting they want to win every piece of silverware up for grabs.
The Anfield club ended their 30-year wait for a league title when they claimed a first Premier League crown in 2019-20, but were unable to defend their status as champions last season as Manchester City usurped them.
Jurgen Klopp’s men suffered a blow in their attempts to wrest the title back from City as they fell to a first league defeat of the season just before the international break, losing 3-2 to West Ham and dropping to fourth in the table.
However, the Reds are only four points behind leaders Chelsea with 11 games played and Alisson says the team want to be the best in every competition, not just the league.
The Merseyside giants are top of their Champions League group after four wins from four and are also into the quarter-finals of the League Cup, with Leicester City their next opponents.
“It’s about more than [regaining the Premier League title], to be honest,” Alisson told Liverpool FC magazine. “We want more.
“Of course we want to win all the tournaments that we play in. We want to win the Champions League, Premier League, FA Cup, Carabao Cup – all the tournaments that it is possible for us to play in.
“This should be the goal and the target for everybody for a team like us. But we have to take it game by game and we must be focused on our jobs to do 100 per cent what we have to do.”
