Jurgen Klopp says what he says and does what he wants!
If certain former managers had made a comparison between Liverpool and Manchester United, it could have annoyed more easily offended Reds, but our German is so charismatic and honest that he gets away with pretty much anything.
And in this case, he makes a point, too.
Under Klopp’s guidance, Liverpool have a habit of killing teams in a very short space of time. This season, we’ve seen sluts of goals against Manchester City twice, Hoffenheim, Arsenal, Maribor, Brighton, Spartak, Watford and plenty of others.
It’s down to the ferocious intensity Liverpool play at – something Alex Ferguson’s United sides were always known for, too.
“Is there something with Alex Ferguson, Man United…?” Klopp told Sky Sports. “At a specific time, they scored always twice?
“Score, score? That is the opportunity. Score once, do it again. Use the momentum in the game. Of course we talk about it, of course we want to use that, but you still have to score.
“The team is a really enthusiastic team. In a good moment, they jump and that’s really good to see.
“On the other hand, that’s why the two Man City games were really special. We dealt with the very difficult circumstances in the two halves here and there on a high level.
“That brought us to the semis, not that we can score one, two, three in a row.
“In the moments when we are not in charge of the game, we are still in the game, that’s a very important thing and that helped us massively.”
Roma will defend deep and resolutely this evening, which is why the tie is such a tricky one.
Unlike against Real Madrid or Bayern Munich, who would have tried to score goals, the Italians will look to protect their own goal rather than attack.
As a result, there won’t be much space in behind – which means Mo Salah and Sadio Mane will have to do their best work in tight areas – something they’re still very capable of!
