Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp had plenty to say about Barcelona ahead of Wednesday’s Champions League semi-final at the Camp Nou at his pre-match press conference.
The Reds boss spoke about Lionel Messi’s promise at the start of the season “to bring this beautiful trophy back” and said it “sounded like a threat to me!”
Klopp: "Messi said before the season started 'we want to bring home this cup'. That sounded like a threat to me. We want to go to the final as well."— James Pearce (@JamesPearceEcho) April 30, 2019
The German also talked about Philippe Coutinho, who will face his former team, and admitted the Brazilian is greatly missed at Anfield.
“We miss Phil Coutinho a lot because he is a world class player and I loved working together with him but we had to deal without him and we did well,” he said
”When I first heard he wanted to go to Barcelona I couldn’t imagine it would be good, but we did good.”

Klopp also went on to say a draw “would not be the worst result in the world” but went on to insist that his team would be going for the win.
