Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp believes PSG are the favorites to lift the Champions League this season.
Jurgen Klopp is in the middle of a communication phase. Rather offensive communication. The Liverpool coach, champion of the Champions League, recently named Juventus as the favorite to succeed his team. This time, he opted for PSG, which challenges Borussia Dortmund in the round of 16 to go Tuesday evening: “The biggest favorite of this competition is PSG. Now they have the pressure! Joking aside, I don’t think what I say adds pressure to the teams, to be honest, “said the German technician at a press conference on Monday.
Klopp, big fan of Simeone
The former coach of Borussia Dortmund was then polled on his remarks about Juve, which had triggered a response from Maurizio Sarri, the coach of Turin: ” I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to put him under pressure, but people asked and sometimes I don’t think before I speak, it happens. I just said that Juventus should be 10 points ahead in Serie A. I don’t want to put too much pressure on them, it wasn’t my intention. I say many things that people should not take seriously. “
Opponent of Liverpool in C1, Atlético Madrid is not as dashing this season as in previous seasons. This does not detract from Klopp’s admiration for Diego Simeone, the coach of the Matelassiers: “This is football, eight years here, seven years without doubt the most successful that Atletico has known since to be 50 years old? I don’t know the whole history of Atletico. It’s difficult, you have to change teams, you lose Diego Godin, you lose Griezmann, Gabi. You have to find new players, get used to it and it takes time, but people don’t give it to you. It looks like they will qualify again for C1, which would be incredible in a year of transition, then next year they will be in the right direction again. ”
