Xherdan Shaqiri believes Liverpool is lacking the mentality to win titles, which Bayern Munich have.
Liverpool reached the final of last season’s UCL, only to lose 3-1 to Madrid, making it the third final the Reds have lost since Klopp joined.
The Reds last won a title in 2012 and Shaqiri believes they need to mirror Bayern’s mentality.
Shaqiri, who joined from relegated Stoke City in pre-season, feels Liverpool are missing the mentality Bayern have.
“Liverpool need to have the goal to play for titles,” the former Bayern winger told reporters ahead of Saturday’s clash with Tottenham. “We are a big team – big teams have to have the goal to win titles.
“It’s difficult in the Premier League, because you have a lot of big teams, so competition is there. You need to have a really, really good season to compete.
“At Bayern they only have the mentality of winning titles. Liverpool are one of the biggest teams in the world.
“Last year they had a very good year. Sadly, they didn’t win a title, but now we try to make a step forward and win honours. That’s the most important goal now. To win titles.
“We need to keep working hard. We are still a young team. Every player wants to go forward and try to be better and to help this big club to be successful.
“To be successful you need to play for titles. That has to be our aim.”
