Jurgen Klopp rejects advice to prioritise Premier League title

Jurgen Klopp has a laugh with goalkeeping coaches John Achterberg and Mark Morris

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.

Klopp welcomed back the last of Liverpool's worldwide contingent when Alisson Becker, Fabinho and Roberto Firmino returned to training on Thursday.

"We are disappointed because we are going to miss him for this game and maybe against Inter in the Champions League".

Speaking in an interview quoted by Metro, Neville said: "The Champions League - if I was Liverpool, I would kick it into touch". You're gonna have to bring in a centre forward, and you say to him "you're gonna be a sub because I've got one of the best strikers in the world in Harry Kane".

"I don't want to be too critical because I don't know exactly how he said it but sitting in an office and talking about football is completely different to doing the job, to be honest". "The drop in quality below them, if there are injuries or playing Wednesday, Saturday, I think it will take its toll", he said.

Pochettino: Watford defeat is a ‘wake-up call’
Despite not getting the win, Moura showed once more that his pace is going to be a trouble for defenders. If you want to win you need to show that character, you need to defend well.

But Neville actually offered Klopp some advice. They were the most stable players in the squad. "As a United fan, that's a worry because it is still that mentality of "anyone but them". Gary should come over and tell me exactly how that works.

Liverpool beat Manchester City in the quarter-finals of last season's Champions League before eventually losing to Real Madrid in the final.

'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'. That's too complicated; you have to go into the next game and see who you can choose. We don't play Champions League or what?

"It was a very hard game for us because we made big mistakes around their goals", said Klopp.

"With a star-studded side full of attacking options the Reds are nearly always guaranteed to score and will look to heap more misery on the hosts who were beaten at Watford last time out". 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.
