Klopp and Firmino preview Porto clash

Last updated : 14 February 2018 By LFC Online

Jurgen Klopp and Roberto Firmino face the press ahead of Wednesday night's Champions League Round of 16 first-leg game at FC Porto.

While Bobby was happier tackling the questions in Portuguese, the boss was in a less than jovial mood and the whole event seemed to take forever, with the translator well and truly earning his keep.

When asked about Liverpool's chances of replicating Rafael Benitez's Reds victory in 2005, Klopp wasn't too happy, insisting that he is not looking beyond Porto.

“I have no idea. If we would be in the final we would try to win it, for sure, but it’s such a long way away,” he said.

“It’s not enough to say I don’t like it, actually I hate to talk about the round after the actual round.

“Only because I am a friendly person I answer the question, because we are in public. Usually if someone asks about the next round I leave the room immediately. We are live on television – that’s why I didn’t do it.”

Don't make him angry!

The game kicks off at 7.45pm and will be shown on BT Sport 2.
