Jurgen Klopp Laughs Off Claims That Beating Liverpool Is ''Virtually Impossible''
Jurgen Klopp laughed off suggestions from Neil Warnock that beating Liverpool is "virtually impossible."
The Reds are flying high in the Premier League and they'll start as big favourites when they take on struggling Cardiff City at Anfield tomorrow.
Bluebirds boss Warnock told reporters: "It's virtually impossible for any team in the current game. I think they have the best front three (Mo Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino) in world football.
"We're playing quite well and I think we can cause problems. You have to go to Anfield believing, but we all have to play to the top our potential to give them a good game."
On hearing what Warnock had said earlier about his team, a typically jovial Klopp laughed heartily before saying: "I am looking forward to meeting him! He is obviously very talented vocal wise. It will be a big pleasure to meet him. It would be cool if that was the truth and they will try everything. He is one of the most experienced managers in the world."
Klopp said he has never met Warnock but was looking forward to catching up with him at Anfield on Saturday.
"He looks like a character - a very emotional and lively person," said Klopp. "I saw the final period of the Championship last season and they showed up. They weren’t the best team in that league but they deserved it in the end. It was really impressive what they did.
"This game is a challenge. Do we have to talk about who should win? If everything goes well, it should be Liverpool. But in football, this isn’t always the case and they can change a few things."
Klopp said Cardiff would pose a threat despite their underdog status. He said: "They are 100 percent concentrated, good from set pieces, particularly the long throws. They are good on the ball with quick players out wide. It makes it a very interesting game. There are different tools you can use to make a game interesting. This game is a challenge."
