Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has come out with some pretty interesting comments ahead of Wednesday’s Champions League semi-final against Barcelona.

The German will take his Liverpool side to the Camp Nou for the first leg of their clash and doesn’t seem too impressed with the home of the Spanish champions.

“The Camp Nou is just a stadium. It is pretty big, but it is no temple of football,” he said.

”It had to arrive at some point. You see the other teams who have a bad time when they play there and now we will experience it. Although of course we hope to play well.

”If you play against Barcelona, you are certainly not favourites. This is a fantastic game for all football supporters.”
