Jose Mourinho Admits Surprise at Liverpool's Champions League Triumph Over Bayern Munich

Adjust Comment Print

Liverpool will be desperate to climb back to the top of the table with a win when they take on Fulham at Craven Cottage on Sunday afternoon.

Manchester City will have a game in hand but Klopp pointed out that they could face a tough run-in with games against third-placed Tottenham Hotspur and local rivals Manchester United in April.

Liverpool's Senegalese striker Sadio Mane (L) celebrates with teammates after scoring their second goal during the English Premier League football match between Liverpool and Watford at Anfield in Liverpool, north west England on February 27, 2019.

Jurgen Klopp spoke of how proud he was of his side after they qualified for the Champions League quarter-finals with victory over Bayern Munich.

"We have a set a bar for this wonderful club that we really are back on the landscape of top global football".

"By the other side I was looking at Liverpool, they were on their way down in the Premier League and they were losing lots of points, and they come with for sure the best performance of the season in the Champions League". Repeat up to 5 times to receive maximum €/£100 bonus.

Liverpool were drawn alongside the Portuguese giants, FC Porto, when the draw for the quarter-final took place in Nyon on Friday. "I never thought about myself in that [way]", he said (via talkSPORT).

"They know we have gone out (of the Champions League), but we have to break their resistance, no matter how". "Porto were not on my wish list, but now they are our opponent, it is how it is and we have to play them", he said. "It helped us a lot for the game against Munich". I don't think we want to play each other in the next round but we'll see who we get.

Mane's fine form has come just at the right time as top-scorer Mohamed Salah has just one goal in his last nine matches and Roberto Firmino two in his last eight. "He's an outstanding player, it is unbelievable how he did", Klopp said of Matip.

"When you look at how many games we need to win I understand it will be very hard but while there's still points it's possible".

"Every team will have their preferences, the teams they wouldn't like to play, but it's a very positive feeling for everyone who is there".

"You can't imagine how (little) I'm interested in that".

"We got a good feeling from getting out of the group and we have got a good feeling after knocking out Bayern Munich". I'm not searching to be remembered in 50 years or whatever people speak about me.
