Video: Jurgen Klopp pre-match press conference – Man United vs. Liverpool

on 16.03.2016

Watch Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp preview the Reds’ Europa League 2nd leg against Man United at Old Trafford.

“We made our position a little bit better (in the first leg),” Klopp told reporters.

“It is not perfect, it is not 5-0 or 6-0, it is not a holiday tomorrow. It is really hard work and I have no problem with this.

“I didn’t think for one second about it (training and staying in Manchester).

“When I heard we would play against Manchester United I decided we would come one day early. In a Europa League game it’s always like this.

“It’s not about feeling comfortable and sleeping at home. We had a few seconds in the hotel before we came here (to Old Trafford) and everything is okay: the room is okay, the bed is okay.

“The trip was a little different because we usually fly rather than go by coach but the rest is exactly like a normal European game.

“When I played with my former club in European tournaments I always enjoyed it to breathe the stadium and where you will be playing the next night.”

  1. Ander Herrera is trying to emulate Alan Pardew with his smug. arrogant and overconfident attitude. I will be looking for the look on his face each time we score tomorrow.

  2. Arsene Wenger resting players in the Champions League so that they have a better chance of qualifying for the Champions League….”are you Brendan in disguise!?”

  3. I cannot even miss a single presser from this guy. I eagerly wait for his “words of wisdom” and stay enchanted for 3-4 hours after presser. In BR time I didn’t even knew that he will have a presser and what time it will be. Not criticizing BR (even though he should be) here but saying I feel more attached towards klopp naturally. Not also because he is LFC manager but what a charismatic guy he is. We can learn a lot from him.:)

    Thanks klopp

  4. Always so refreshing to listen to Klopp. Its amazing that I find myself so eagerly waiting just for his press-conferences. And, by the way, what the fvuk is it with all those noises in the background?!

  5. So the guys made the trip by coach in one day? Impressive, I’d have taken an overnight layover in Widnes. Gotta love the Hillcrest, amirite?
