Jurgen Klopp expects calm Liverpool side against Villarreal

Jurgen Kopp wants his Liverpool team to get their desire of being patient on board and play with one direction against Villarreal in the Europa League Semi-finals second leg at Anfield on Thursday.

Liverpool are going into the game with 1-0 deficit knowing very well that two unanswered or more would guarantee them final sport.

“Our skills, quality, passion, readiness together with the atmosphere at Anfield, that’s what I’m looking for,” the German tactician said.

“We know we have 90-something minutes. It’s not about being patient, it’s about being patient with a clear direction.

“We have to know about the game, not with pressure, only with joy. It’s only playing football.

“Football is a fair game. If we play our best then we can go to the final.”

Klopp, however, added that his team’s qualities are enough to contribute for a win on Thursday.

“When I think about my team, I never have a limit where it could go. I don’t know how far we are. I’m not interested.

“The players have given me a lot of positive signs about their quality. We don’t have to think too much. We are ready.

“All we did is to be perfectly prepared for a game like this tomorrow.”
