Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp knows he is running out of time to fulfil his promise of winning silverware in his first four years in charge.

Klopp took over at Anfield in 2015 and said at his introductory press conference he needed to win a trophy quickly or his next job "may be in Switzerland".

The Reds have a chance to deliver as they remain locked in a tight title race with Manchester City and have reached the semi-finals of the Champions League.

"A lot of people reminded me that when I first came here I signed a three-year contract and I said in four years if we're sat here we probably would have won something," Klopp said on the Liverpool website.

"It didn't happen yet. Both sides, the club and myself, have a wonderful commitment that we really try everything to make the club as successful as possible. How long will it take? I have no clue.

"The position we are in now I am really happy with. Not that it is the final position where we want to be, but the awareness from outside the club, where we are, second time in the Champions League semi-final - that is really special."
