Simon Mignolet targets silverware for Liverpool this season

Mignolet

After the progress of last season, Liverpool's goalkeeper is targeting a trophy.

Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet has said it would be great if the club could win a trophy this season.

In an interview with the official match programme for Liverpool's game with Ludogorets, Mignolet anticipated a difficult start to the season with so many new players settling into the side but is confident the side will improve.

He said: "The first couple of games are always a bit difficult, whoever you play. All you have to do is get through it and find your rhythm. With the number of quality players that have arrived over the summer it was always going to take time to settle. I'm confident we will build and grow. If that happens, I'm also confident we can achieve our objectives. It would be great if we could win something."

After last season's unexpected second place finish in the Premier League, it is expected that Liverpool will challenge for the title.

Manager Brendan Rodgers has spoken of his desire to win some silverware in his third season in charge, and Liverpool certainly have the number of personnel required to compete on four fronts this season. Some have suggested the commitment of playing in the Champions League could thwart them to some extent. 

The Reds have endured a stuttering start to the campaign so far - having won two and lost two of their opening four Premier League games.

Naturally, Liverpool are hoping they get stronger as the season goes on and the new signings begin to find their feet - and the Champions League win this week will have been a boost.

More time spent together is bound to improve the side as they get to know each other better, and more competitive fixtures are bound to help with the side's cohesions. Now what Liverpool will be after is some consistency.
