Roberto Firmino has outlined how he overturned last season’s title loss to this season’s motivation.
Liverpool missed out on the Premier League title by a single point to Manchester City.
They eventually did claim the Champions League title in June to finish the season successfully. However, it has been a clear aim for this Reds team to break their 30-year drought of winning the league title. With a 14-point lead at the top, they are well on their way to doing so.
“Last year we hit the post in the Premier League, we were upset of course that we didn’t win,” Firmino told Premier League Productions, as quoted by LiverpoolFC.com.
“We have a chance this season, it’s in our hands. We need to keep it up, working hard, following this path with our heads in the right place and a winning mentality. We’ll take things game by game and keep this strong champions mentality up until the end and see where it takes us. Of course we’re more confident this season. We’ve been winning all our games, this increases our confidence game by game. We have to continue with this momentum.”
