Jurgen Klopp laughs off Gary Neville’s comments about Liverpool

Jurgen Klopp has responded angrily to Gary Neville's suggestion that Liverpool ignore the Champions League this season to focus on pursuing the Premier League title. "The front three are a real problem and a handful, so I think Liverpool will challenge Man City".

"Naby Keita for example, Man City may not want him but if you ask Klopp whether he wants Kevin De Bruyne or Naby Keita, he would want Keita because of the way he wants to play".

"That's good, they had a normal break and then started pre-season with us, so they were the most stable players in the squad and that's why we used them".

"We know Liverpool is a big game against a team who have been one of the best this season", Eriksen said. You bring your kids in the Champions League? A year ago I don't think even Gary Neville would have said 'let City win in the Champions League.' Sitting in an office talking about football is different to doing the job.

"I don't know what he means with that, to be honest".

It's odd that Neville really does think that Liverpool have a chance of winning the title and really was just giving his opinion on what their downfall might be.

"I don't know exactly what it means but to focus on one competition can only be if you're already out of the competition almost, or if it's late in the season and you see you have a chance to do that or this".

Spurs host Liverpool at Wembley on Saturday in a Premier League game which had been earmarked as the opening fixture for the 62,000-seater stadium. Speaking to the media, Klopp said, "How would that work?"

Liverpool are scheduled to play seven games in the next 23 days starting with the weekend's trip to Wembley on Saturday.

"It's an awesome build which is going to take time, it's disappointing (Spurs are not playing there yet) and we should have a date".

Klopp though, is likely to stick with his strongest side when they pay a visit to Tottenham. "Mauricio [Pochettino] has the same issues, we all have to work with what we've got".

"If a lot of players are contributing and the goals are shared around, it's much better for the team".

Klopp hit back at the former Red Devils skipper by claiming that he did not understand how to concentrate exclusively on one competition when at a club like Liverpool, who are expected to compete on all fronts.
