Liverpool Manager Jurgen Klopp expects tough clash in their Europa League fixture against Borussia Dortmund on Thursday at Westfalenstadion.

“We have said Dortmund are favourites and I don’t think anyone disagrees with that. It is understandable, considering they are having a good season.

“But my players haven’t travelled here without any hope we will get a result. We have looked at the way Dortmund play but my players have not come here and expected me to give them a detailed¬†breakdown on every Dortmund player.

“If we are not good tomorrow it will be easy for Dortmund but why should I think about this? We have the highest mountain to climb but it is possible.

“We haven’t lost a match in the Europa League. We had Augsburg and it was not too easy, and Manchester United was the biggest game and biggest pressure, so we are prepared for this.”

Jurgen Klopp managed to clinched back-to-back Bundesliga trophies and took the Club to 2013 Champions League final and he claims his return to Dortmund is never a thing to worry about.

“It is easy for me, as I just have friends here. It is better to be here than, I don’t know, North Korea or something.

“We got here early so I had 20 minutes to catch up with old friends. It would have been daft not to have that chance.

“Tomorrow is different, we are focused on the game. We will make our way straight to the dressing room. We always play against our best friends and are always wanting to beat them.

“It’s not a problem, I don’t think about my situation for a second.”
