“So, absolutely outstanding, Nuno is doing an exceptional job. Top, top recruitment, quite a few players from Portugal, it’s clear, with all the people working there at the club. Top, top players. Yeah, nothing bad to say about them.
“Now they changed system slightly, not sure if they will play against us like this, that makes it even more tricky, that you don’t know exactly what they will do. They don’t know exactly what we will do, which is good. So, same situation – let’s play the game,” Klopp said.
Liverpool To Welcome 2,000 Supporters

“I hope 2,000 people can be really influential, that they really help. First and foremost, they have to enjoy the game. I don’t hope that if they see the first pass that will not arrive from player A to player B that they think, ‘Oh my god, again!’ and stuff like this – they just should be happy that they are in the stadium again. I’m very happy that we have them there and let’s make the best of it,” an elated Klopp said as he received the news with both arms.
