Liverpool midfielder Wijnaldum fires warning at Man City

Liverpool midfielder Gini ­Wijnaldum has fired a warning at Manchester City.

Wijnaldum insists that winning the Champions League will help the Reds end their 30-year wait for a domestic title.

He said: “Winning the Champions League has given us all peace of mind. Now we know what it's like to win the biggest trophy of them all – and we just want to keep going from here and add even more titles.

"But Jurgen Klopp is not putting ­extreme pressure on us to win the Premier League. He does not tell us, 'Now you must win this or that trophy'. He is very ­relaxed.

“He did not do that ­during the past season, either. His idea is that we get the ­maximum out of every ­individual every single day that we are together. And then we will see where that brings us at the end of the season.

“Just look at the list of world-class players who have not won the ­Champions League during their careers. It contains more famous names than you would think – and it tells you that it is really special we have won it with Liverpool."
