The Reds arrived in Naples on Tuesday afternoon buoyed by a hard-fought draw at Chelsea, and with memories of their 3-2 win over Paris Saint-Germain still fresh.
Klopp’s side face another big challenge in the shape of Napoli, however, as the manager looks to balance his squad between this game and the weekend’s visit of Man City.
Speaking at his pre-match press conference earlier in the evening, Klopp described Wednesday’s opponents as a “really good football team.”
“Napoli is really well organised, with quality in all departments—speed, good in dribbling, tactically really strong—and that makes it a really good football team,” he said.
“The good news for us is we’re not too bad as well, so that’s why I’m looking forward to the game.”
Sturridge was among the 23-man squad who then trained at the 55,000-seater stadium, looking very relaxed and happy.
The group then engaged in some team bonding exercises before advancing into a proper warm up and some ball work.
