Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has urged his side to be ‘brave’ when they travel to face Manchester City on Thursday night.
Klopp described the visit to Man City as ‘one of the most difficult games you can play in the modern football world’ but has urged his side to be ‘brave’ ahead of a huge clash at The Etihad.
‘It’s a normal game against Manchester City, a very difficult one. It’s one of the most difficult games you can play in the modern football world.’ Klopp told his pre-match press conference.
‘We have felt that plenty of times. They are a really strong football team with an outstanding manager. We have to be prepared as well as possible. We have to be brave, we have to be full of desire, angry again, all that stuff – like in all the other games – but with the knowledge that the opponent is, for me, still the best team in the world.
‘I said it weeks ago because it’s 100 per cent my opinion; the way they play and all the things they have achieved and the things they will achieve. Nothing changed, only the points changed, but not the preparation for the game.’
