Manchester City midfielder Fernandinho says that his side are going to have to be at their best to eliminate Liverpool from the Champions League after the two sides drew one another in this year's quarter-final.

The match, to be played on 3-11 April, is a replay of last season's Champions League final, which brought Zidane back-to-back European crowns with a 4-1 win in Cardiff.

"Yes, he said in German "bis bald" and I wrote back 'see ya",' said Klopp. "Bis bald pretty much means, "see you soon" and I used a Scouse phrase "see ya".

Klopp and Ilkay Gundogan worked together at Borussia Dortmund.

Joel Matip gets the nod to replace Dejan Lovren in the Liverpool starting XI for Saturday's Premier League clash against Watford, as Jurgen Klopp has made multiple changes to the side that lost to Manchester United last weekend.

He added, "I don't really think Pep and myself have a relationship".

"Especially from my point of view I have respect, I think that is normal when you see his teams playing and the work he did in the last few years. We like to travel and to go to another country in the Champions League but it is what it is", said Begiristain.

'That is a friendship and it is not like that.

"But we drew Juve and now I have to concentrate on that and forget about everything that happened to me there as a player even if it'll always be there in the back of my mind".
