‘Pitting ourselves against a top manager in Jürgen’ – Bruno Lage full of praise for Klopp in his pre-game programme notes

Posted by

Liverpool face Bruno Lage’s Wolverhampton Wanderers for the very first time this afternoon and the Portuguese manager was full of praise for Jurgen Klopp’s side before kick-off.

Speaking in his programme notes (via Liverpool’s club website), the 45-year-old described what his team need to do in order to get three points against the Reds.

He said: “When you face a team like Liverpool, you have to match their ambition and mentality, as you don’t win Premier League titles without a big ambition, belief in your ability and a confidence that you can go into every game knowing you can get the three points.

“Every time I come into a game, it is with big confidence in my players and my staff because every time is an opportunity to show our game.

“Although we didn’t get all three points, I believe we did that on Wednesday and coming back to our home this afternoon, pitting ourselves against a top manager in Jürgen and top players, we know what we can achieve if we play our game.”

Plenty of respect, yet a lot of belief in his own side and their ability to attempt to get a positive result against us today.

Let’s hope we can continue our impressive form and try and get all three points this afternoon.
