Jurgen Klopp scoffs at Gary Neville's suggestion


Jurgen Klopp has hit back after Gary Neville suggested that Liverpool should ignore the Champions League and focus on the Premier League, which he believes they have a realistic chance of winning.

And former Manchester United defender Neville feels that Liverpool FC would be wise to focus on trying to win the Premier League this season and prioritise it ahead of the Champions League.

"It's our fifth season at Tottenham and if someone knows him really well I think we do".

"Just one, and I think it's Liverpool", Morrison told Yahoo Sport's The Football Show.

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 won all four of the league matches so far and sit top of the table at this early stage.

Pochettino said: "Look, when in England the transfer window closed and in Europe closed I think we move on".

Son scored 18 goals in 53 games in all competitions for Tottenham last season and he was on target when the London side thrashed Liverpool 4-1 at Wembley last October.

And there's no reason why the Reds can't go one better and win the competition for a sixth time.

"Gary should come over and tell me exactly how that would work".

"Actually I don't like to compare players but we had similar players and questions about Robbo (Andrew Robertson) and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain", he said.

"What did he say about Man United in that situation?"

"If you want to win Premier League titles then you have to win these games, so Liverpool will be judged on this too".

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.

"We will see, I don't know what it means, to focus on one competition, can only be if you're almost out of a competition, late in the season".

Fabinho, another possible option in defence, has yet to kick a competitive ball for the club and with a gruelling fixture list about to kick in, many should be careful what they wish for.
