Anfield is Liverpool fortress but Klopp is aware of Roma’s potential. “Although they traded Salah and Emerson out, they are a great side,” stated Liverpool’s coach. “I admire Roma and I know that they hired a new sporting director as well. I don’t care what people think. Although everybody was waiting for Barcelona and Manchester City to qualify, Roma and Liverpool deserved to get to this stage.”
Mono Salah is a great star in the Premier League. His past with the Giallorossi gives a little advantage to Klopp’s side. “He knows the Roma players. But he also knows that the Italian defenders are not very friendly. He is an amazing player thanks to Roma as well.”
Jurgen Klopp knows that his team has the qualities to get to the end of this international competition. “We want to reach the final match,” confirmed the German coach.
