“He [Klopp] has all the qualities that everybody knows about Liverpool. At the end, it’s the teams and the clubs that win the game. I don’t play against the manager, we play against Liverpool. Sometimes I win, sometimes I lose, sometimes we win competitions, sometimes we lose competitions.”

“He is an excellent manager, I have a lot of respect for the way he plays, his proactive teams. In the Premier League we beat them, in the Champions League we didn’t.”
