Klopp ‘looking forward’ to Bayern Munich challenge

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says he is ‘looking forward to’ the challenge after seeing his side drawn with German giants Bayern Munich in the Champions League last-16.

The Reds will face the Bundesliga champions in the first knock-out stage, and former Borussia Dortmund boss Klopp says he is relishing the prospect of taking on the five-times European champions.

“For me it’s nice going to Germany. This is a different Bayern than what I played, we are already here for three years,” Klopp told Liverpool’s official website.

“We all know the stadium, the atmosphere will be great. It’s a really nice trip for all our supporters, it’s a wonderful city, so that’s all good.

“The flight is not too long and we obviously know more about German football than about any other league.

“In the last couple of years they have dominated the German league in the best period of German football. It’s obviously long ago that I played Bayern in a competitive game so I’m really looking forward to it.”
