Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp insists that he is under no pressure from the club's owners to deliver silverware to Anfield.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has insisted that he is under no pressure from the club's owners to deliver silverware to Anfield.

The Reds, who have not won a trophy 2012, lost in two finals during the 2015-16 season, suffering defeat in the League Cup final against Manchester City before losing to Sevilla in the Europa League in May 2016.

Klopp, whose team are third in the Premier League, has admitted that it is hard to compete financially with the likes of Manchester City, but the German has also insisted that he has no issues with the club's owners.

"We have Mike Gordon, the FSG (Fenway Sports Group) president, and he is the most supportive person I have ever met," the manager told the Daily Mail. "It's crazy. He says: 'Sorry, they can do that and we can't.' I know that's impossible. So I don't think about how we can compete.

"The only chance we have is to use the time we have. Nobody puts us under pressure from the side. The owners don't say, 'next year, you be champions or you can go.' It's outsiders who say, 'if he doesn't bring silverware in, he's under pressure.'"

"If the people here want to work together for that one moment when we can succeed and that's possible, then everything is fine."

Liverpool remain in contention for the Champions League, but are out of the EFL Cup and the FA Cup this season.
