Sturridge: Liverpool must break trophy hoodoo

Daniel Sturridge says Liverpool must get over the hurdle of winning trophies to reach the next level.

The Reds have progressed each season under Jurgen Klopp since the German's arrival in 2015, but they are yet to win a trophy.

They can change that fact on June 1 when they take on Tottenham Hotspur in the Champions League final, and Sturridge says a victory will lead to more silverware for the Merseyside club.

“It (The squad) has improved a lot," he said. “But the main thing everybody wants is success and trophies.

“I feel we need to take the next step and push to the next level. Winning a trophy – which is the biggest hurdle – allows you to win a lot more because you know how to win.

“That's the thing we're lacking at the moment, jumping over that last hurdle to provide the first trophy under the manager."
