Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp admits facing Paris Saint-Germain is one of the toughest teams to play in the Champions League and he is bracing up for the challenge.
After the results of the UEFA Champions League group stage draw were known, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp believes the most difficult team to face is PSG.
“PSG are one of the most exciting teams in the world and I think their target is to win the Champions League, so that will be two interesting matches,” he told Sky Sports.
“I am looking forward to watching PSG a bit more often, which is a very interesting project for sure over in France with Thomas Tuchel.”
“Facing Neymar will be, for our Brazilian guys, like meeting a friend again and all that stuff. It’s a big challenge, but for all the others it is a big challenge to face us,” he added.
“Napoli, we beat them in pre-season but it goes without saying these two games will be completely a different challenge.”
“I’ve been to Napoli with Dortmund, so I know what the atmosphere is like there. In fact, it’s where I got a suspension [for being sent off]. I can do better, obviously! Red Star, I watched them last night. They came through and it will be, again, a very, very intense atmosphere I am sure,” he explained.
Liverpool will play in Group C with French side Paris Saint-Germain, Italian club Napoli and Serbia’s Red Star Belgrade.
