Greed makes Liverpool what they are today - Lovren

Liverpool FC's defender, Dejan Lovren has said that Liverpool's recent success is as a result of hunger and greed.

In an interview with Sky Sports, Loveren opened up on the secret behind Liverpool's success.

Jurgen Klopp's team are on the verge of making history in the EPL as they take a 22 point lead at the top of the table with about 13 matches to go.

Should they maintain their blistering unbeaten form, Liverpool will be confirmed as PL champions before the end of the 2019/20 season for the first time since the league was changed to the Premier League.

Liverpool only missed out by a point last year as they watched City lift the trophy.

Lovren insists the atmosphere in the dressing-room this term is like nothing he has experienced before and says their selfish desire to win matches is what makes this Liverpool squad special.

"It's not a lie. It's a privilege to be in the dressing-room and to see smiley faces, but it's not just about smiley faces - it's about how we are still reacting on the training ground," Lovren said.

"We are still hungry, still greedy and this is what makes us special, to be honest.

"I think many other teams would go easy now with a 22-point lead but we don't look at these 22 points. We are just focused game-by-game and this I think is the simplest way to be the best.

"It is a good experience also for the younger ones, to understand that even if you are on top you still need to work as hard as if you were in the middle of the table or in last position."
