Liverpool defender Lovren: Once you try a good meal, you want to try it again!

Dejan Lovren says Liverpool are hungry to win more trophies.

The Reds won the Champions League last year and were on the brink of claiming this season's Premier League title before games were suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic.

And Lovren insists his teammates are desperate for more silverware.

He told the Liverpool website: "It's a learning process. The core of the team is here, starting from the manager - he did a great job here from the beginning. He showed everyone that he has the abilities and the skills and he knows how to manage the team in bad moments and in good moments.

"We didn't stop work, that's the main point - we stayed hungry. This is what he brought to us. We are always hungry and will stay hungry.

"Once you try a good meal, you want to try it again - you don't stop. This is what is pushing us. We want to show to everyone what we are capable of.

"It's important to have a mix between really young players, the middle [age] players and the experienced players. I think we have it, this is the great balance.

"We are used to playing big finals and the big games and we know how to manage it. Even when we are 1-0 down we know what to do. This is why it's important to have a balance in the team.

"If we keep the important players and the core of the team here for many years, we will only grow."
