Jurgen Klopp slams Gary Neville's Champions League advice

Gary Neville Makes Huge Claim on Liverpool's Champions League Ambitions This Season Inter v Tottenham: Harry Kane chasing historic Golden Boot treble

Gary Neville believes that Liverpool FC should sacrifice the Champions League and focus on trying to win the Premier League title this season.

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.

"I don't know what he means with that".

"Unfortunately he is not fit at the moment but I am sure he will be back in a pretty intense period with seven games in the next three weeks", he said.

While Mignolet was eventually replaced by Loris Karius between the sticks, Lovren remained and finished the season with a Champions League and a World Cup final appearance.

Jurgen Klopp's side have made great strides since the German's arrival and have been tipped as genuine challengers to Manchester City's crown.

Spurs, too, came into the season with real expectations after a transfer window that saw them hold on to every one of the stars.

Trump also said that since 9/11, almost 5.5 million Americans have enlisted in the armed forces. They "joined the immortal ranks of American heroes", said Trump .


"Why? I think their method is exhausting for the front three [Salah, Mane and Firmino]".

The defeat did at least spark some kind of wake up call for the Reds, who then went 18 matches unbeaten in all competitions.

He said: 'Gary should come over and tell me exactly how that would work.

With the worldwide break now over, attentions once again turn to the Premier League, and by far the biggest match of this weekend's fixtures sees Tottenham face off with Liverpool at Wembley in a clash of title contenders. That's too complicated; you have to go into the next game and see who you can choose.

Goalkeeper Lloris sustained a thigh problem during last month's 3-0 win at Manchester United, which meant he missed the subsequent 2-1 loss at Watford and France's global commitments over the past week. 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. We don't play Champions League or what?' Klopp asked at his press conference ahead of the Tottenham match this Saturday.

Pochettino's side claimed a 4-1 win over Liverpool in the corresponding fixture of last season but he is anticipating a much tougher task this time around.
