Jurgen Klopp fires back at Gary Neville

Jurgen Klopp fires back at Gary Neville

"If whoever it may be needs a rest and you've got a game in the Champions League on Wednesday night, then a real big Premier League game on the Saturday, rest the player [in] the Champions League". That's too complicated; you have to go into the next game and see who you can choose.

"Last year, for example, we had no chance to focus on one competition because we had to qualify for the Champions League and I don't think that even Gary Neville would have said, 'Quarter-finals of the Champions League, let City win". I don't know exactly what it means but to focus on one competition can only be if maybe you are already out of the competition almost.

As he prepares to face Tottenham, PSG, Southampton, Chelsea (twice), Napoli and Manchester City in the space of three weeks, Klopp suggested that Neville doesn't understand what it's like to manage a team from the safety of his "office".

Liverpool FC are still aiming to win their first trophy since Jurgen Klopp's appointment at Anfield back in October 2015.

Liverpool's intensity dropped between the West Ham and Leicester games but we've been more reliable on the defence so haven't paid the price.

Liverpool head to Tottenham on Saturday for their first real big test of the season.

Liverpool have had a blistering start to their league campaign this time around, winning all four matches and conceding just one goal.

"He came from another league, a completely different system and we have a good team together so that takes time, but the plan is still he will make us better so, from my point of view, it's all fine. Mauricio [Pochettino] has the same issues, we all have to work with what we've got". It was kind of a wake-up call for the players. Son played a more advanced role that day and Pochettino might be tempted to thrust him into the action this weekend in the hope of a repeat scenario.

"What did he say about Man United in that situation?"
