Jurgen Klopp bites back at Gary Neville over Champions League remarks

Jordan Henderson was speaking to Sky Sports' Laura Woods

Liverpool progressed through to the Champions League final last season where they were soundly beaten by three-time defending champions Real Madrid and Neville told The Times that he thinks the Reds could have a real shot at the Premier League title if they did not have to play Champions League football in the latter half of the season.

The Egypt global was sensational under Jurgen Klopp last season as Liverpool reached the Champions League final.

"Also Pep will be going for it. Man City will be going for the Premier League, trying to win it twice in a row, and they will be trying to win the Champions League".

Jurgen Klopp is clearly one of the top managers in the world but many pundits and fans have criticised him for failing to perform in the big games.

"I know that's very hard to do but if they could go into February, March, April without it, I think they could have a real chance [of winning the league] if they had free weeks."How would that work?" Klopp asked at Friday's press conference. I just felt Liverpool wanted to come to an agreement quickly. His record in cup finals is simply bad as he has now lost six out of his last seven major finals, including that painful 3-1 defeat to Real Madrid in last season's Champions League final.

"If you want to win Premier League titles then you have to win these games, so Liverpool will be judged on this too".

Lucas Moura has been Spurs' standout player this season, picking up a player of the month award for his opener in the 3-1 defeat of Fulham and brace in a 3-0 victory over Manchester United. You have to look at the type of football the club plays and see if that suits you.

"To focus on one competition can only be if you are already out, or almost out, or if it's late in the season".

"It's absolutely no problem", he said. The club he's more interested in. Fabinho is full of desire and wants to be involved and I have to tell him "You're not involved this week" and that's not nice.

One player, meanwhile, who has had a tough time in the early stages of the season is Fabinho, about whose situation Klopp shed some light on.

"He came from another league playing in a completely different system to us and that takes time". They're a very good team, but we are as well.
