Jürgen Klopp played with Liverpool at Aston Villa on Tuesday night, where Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard is the coach. He was impressed ahead of the game and said he’s never seen a better team at Liverpool than they are now.
Huge praise before meeting again: Jürgen Klopp meets an old acquaintance with Liverpool on Tuesday evening at Aston Villa: Villa trainer and Reds legend Steven Gerrard. He says about the opponent: “Due to the speed, mentality and intensity with which they play, they are probably the best Liverpool team that has ever existed.”
Explosive about the duel: With a win at the club from Birmingham, Liverpool would be level on points with Manchester City again. Nevertheless, despite all the ties to his old club, Gerrard emphasizes: “My job is to win games for Aston Villa and that will always be the case as long as I coach this club. I always want to win and it’s no different on Tuesday.”
Not an easy game: Despite Gerrard’s flattering words, Klopp will hardly underestimate the opponent. On the one hand, every point counts for the Reds in the title fight against ManCity, on the other hand Liverpool can still remember the last away game in Birmingham very well. At that time they went down 2:7.
