Wijnaldum insists Liverpool will target Premier League and Champions League glory

Georginio Wijnaldum insists Liverpool will target both Premier League and Champions League glory this season.

Jurgen Klopp’s side currently trail Premier League leaders Manchester City by a point, as they seek a first top-flight title in almost three decades

Liverpool also advanced to the Champions League quarter-finals after beating German giants Bayern Munich 3-1 on aggregate in the last-16, and while some have suggested that being knocked out of Europe would boost the Reds chances in the league, Wijnaldum insists that they will fight on both fronts.

“It felt great because a lot of teams struggle to come and get a good result at Bayern,” he told the Liverpool Echo.

“We had confidence we could do it. After the first game people were asking: ‘Is this a good result for the second leg?’

“We were confident because we did not concede at home and we know the way we play football we can create chances and score goals.

“We felt what it is to play in a final last season and the journey was great. We want it again.

“At a club like Liverpool you have to win everything possible and you have to play for both – the Premier League and the Champions League.

“It suits Liverpool to play for both. Look at Manchester City, they are not only going for the title or the Champions League. It’s a big club – so is Liverpool – so you go for both.”
