John Stones says Manchester City won’t let Klopp go out with quadruple

Manchester City star John Stones says they will do everything they can to stop Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool winning four trophies this season.

Liverpool won the Carabao Cup last week and is one point clear at the top of the Premier League. The Reds will face Manchester United in the FA Cup quarter-final and will play with Sparta Praha in the Europa League round of 16.

Manchester City has a chance to win another treble this season, but Liverpool could end the season with four trophies in Klopp’s final campaign.

In an interview with the National this week, Stones was asked about the possibility of Klopp leaving Anfield with four more trophies this summer.

Oh no. Can’t be letting that happen! Arsenal, Liverpool, the teams that have been pushing us and us pushing them for the trophies. it’s working in our favour. We’ve got to be better. It’s healthy competition.

It’s hunger. Do everything, have no regrets. Look, at the end of my career, which is hopefully a long time away. I want to look back and see all the things that I’ve got that I never thought I would have as a kid.

Winning trophies sets something off inside you. That feeling! You want it again. It’s hunger and desire. That doesn’t go. Look back over six, seven seasons now and we’ve always been there fighting for the Premier League. always been there in the FA Cup, the semis, finals, in recent years Champions League, Carabao [Cup] four on the bounce.

“Something that goes so under the radar is how difficult that is to maintain over a sustained period. That’s something I’m proud of. This hunger.”

Ahead of the Manchester derby with United on Sunday, Stones said Man City players are only focused on their next game.

I don’t look at fixture lists and work out what might happen. I only ever know what the next game is.”

He added: “I have always been like that. It means I can focus all my energy on that game and not get carried away with things. All I can control is that game right in front of me.
