Klopp hails Guardiola as ‘best coach in world.’

All eyes will turn to Anfield tomorrow night as Liverpool face Manchester City in their highly anticipated Champions League quarter-final second leg.

Liverpool have a commanding 3-0 lead from the first tie at Anfield last week, in which they completely outplayed the runaway Premier League leaders in both attack and defence.

Klopp, however is not taking anything for granted despite his team now being massive favourites to progress to the semi-final stage of Europe’s most prestigious cup competition.

Speaking in the build up to tomorrow’s fixture the German coach was quick to point out that his side still had plenty of work to do and also heaped praise on his opposite number Pep Guardiola.

“When we lost here 5-0 at the beginning of the season, everybody saw the quality of City even when we were one man down, the preparation for the season, signings, the best coach in the world.”

“It is clear they would be outstanding but there is no perfect football team in the world. The game doesn’t give you the chance to be perfect.”

Clashes between Premier League club’s in the Champions League are usually feisty affairs, and with the added controversy over City’s team bus being attacked on the way to Anfield last week, as well as Cityzens midfielder Fernandinho’s comments about Liverpool being a long ball team, this game is perfectly poised to be an absolute cracker.
