Liverpool midfielder Giorginio Wijnaldum has said the Reds have to believe they can win titles, and that it's on the current players to write more history for the club.

In an interview with the club's official website, the Dutchman who signed from Newcastle this summer suggested the history is an attraction to the club, and added the current side has the capability to win honours. 

He said: "I want to win titles. Liverpool is a club with a beautiful history, but we have to make new history and we can do it with titles and winning games.

"That's what I want to do here. We have a good team, really talented, and if we work as a team I think we can achieve a lot of things.

"I think we can achieve a lot of things with the team because the team is very talented. We have to believe that we can do something, that we can win titles.

"Liverpool is a big club and you have to do everything to write history with them, that's what we have to do this season. It's not easy, but it's not impossible."

The Reds came very close to silverware on two occasions last season as they lost out in the League Cup final on penalties to Manchester City, and in the Europa League final to Sevilla - meaning there is no European football for the Reds this season. 

It seems that Jurgen Klopp has tried to address some areas in the side in terms of getting more goals from different areas of the field as well as some pace, and will be keen to end a five-year trophy drought this season. The last time Liverpool lifted a major trophy was back in 2012. 

Some feel that without European football that Liverpool can have a strong league campaign, certainly in terms of the Champions League places but it seems there is a mood within the squad to push for more if they possibly can.

They got off to a winning start against Arsenal last weekend and will be hoping to capitalise on the momentum that may have generated in the coming weeks.
