Georginio Wijnaldum believes Jurgen Klopp has given Liverpool the belief to go on and "write history" this season.

The £25million summer signing from Newcastle, who enjoyed an impressive debut at Arsenal last weekend, says Klopp's style of management makes him one of a kind.

"You experience it in a meeting - how he talks, the way he coaches from the sidelines with a lot of passion," Wijnaldum said ahead of this afternoon's Premier League clash with newly-promoted Burnley at Turf Moor.

"You can see that he believes in the team and he wants to get the team to a higher level. I think he's the right man to achieve things with the club and the team that we have right now.

"How he talks with players gives you belief and confidence, and that's what we need. He forces us to use our quality and that's good.

"He gives us the confidence not to be scared to make mistakes and when he talks about the team or the players he says that we have to use our quality because he knows we can. That gives you a good feeling.

"If you see how he coaches, how he looks at the game, it's different to all the other coaches I had. I've seen a lot but none like him."

"The Dutchman came to Anfield in search of success and he believes Klopp boasts a squad capable of delivering silverware.

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.

"We have a good team, really talented, and if we work as a team I think we can achieve a lot of things. A club like Liverpool deserves it. The players before us already wrote history and now it's on us to write more.

"We have to believe that we can do something - that we can win titles. And if we can do that I'm sure it will be a big opportunity for us to win things - that's what I want to achieve with the team.

"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."
