Klopp didn’t wait to get in the dressing room to speak to Van Dijk

Klopp didn’t wait to get in the dressing room to speak to Van Dijk

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has dismissed praise from Napoli boss Carlo Ancelotti as "tactics" before the two sides' Champions League Group C tie.

After a frustrating few years, the good times are certainly back for Sturridge. I like being coached by him because he doesn't say much, but he always knows what to say and how to say it. It's not decisive, but we've already dropped two points against Red Star.

'He says all these positive things about us and all these nice things about me. "We won't be able to boss the game for its entirety, but we need to improve the way we control things at hard times, which you are bound to face against sides of such a high level". Against Paris Saint-Germain, we saw Sturridge playing in a way we didn't see before, defending, [and] he switched positions with one of the front three and did their job. 'I told him I expect more hat-tricks this season. previous year there was only one.

On a huge week for the Reds, with Manchester City visiting Anfield four days after the Napoli match...

Klopp, who took charge of Liverpool in 2015 after seven years at Dortmund, also defended the Brazil No. 1 when he made an error that led directly to a goal at Leicester City last month in just his third appearance for the club. "I am here to be ready for a real battle and stuff like that". Ancelotti prefers the lanky Pole because he is physically stronger than Mertens, while he views the Belgian as an alternative to Insigne because they are quite similar players. "They have a great physical condition, they play with intensity and so they manage to overcome the challenges of the Champions League". Goes about his business quietly while the media hype up Van Dijk for being half the player", whilst @alxsson concurs by stating his 'Fairly unpopular opinion: "Van Dijk is our most important player'.

Napoli carry a number of threats that Liverpool will need to keep a close eye out on and who can have a big impact on the outcome of the match.

"That's the goal for us". He never got 47 again, he would score 25 or 30 goals a season.

And Red fans were extremely expeditious to take to Twitter to proclaim their delight at the centre-back slotting right back in to the Liverpool back-line in what is set to be Jurgen Klopp's sternest test of the season so far.
