'It's a proper football group!' - Klopp reacts to Liverpool's Champions League draw

02-Oct-2020, 05:37 am

Jurgen Klopp, Liverpool

Jurgen Klopp says Liverpool have been drawn in a "proper football group" in the first round of the season's Champions League.

Supporters across Merseyside might have been hoping for an easy route through to the knockout stages, butAjax, Atalanta and Midtjylland could well provide Liverpool with a stern test in Group D.

Ajax enjoyed a thrilling run to the semi-finals of the competition two seasons ago, while Atalanta managed to reach the last four in 2019-20 only to suffer a dramatic defeat at the hands of eventual finalists Paris Saint-Germain.

Meanwhile, Danish outfitMidtjylland will be making their first appearance on Europe's elite stage and will be eager to make their mark, having stunned Slavia Prague in their final qualifier on Wednesday.

Liverpool won the Champions League for the sixth time in their history in 2018, but exited in the round-of-16 last season after losing both legs of their tie against Atletico Madrid.

Klopp will hope his side can go all the way again this time around, and he is looking forward to coming up against three teams with very distinctive qualities.

"I didn’t really think about travelling to be honest, but yeah, Italy, Holland and Denmark are maybe not the furthest away," the German head coach said after the draw.

"That’s okbut we don’t think about the miles we make in the Champions League, we think about the games we play and I think it’s a really strong group.

"Everybody knows how good Ajax was two years ago and they will always build a proper new squad and a proper team. Midtjylland is for different reasons...one of the most interesting teams because they have quite a specific way.

"These are the few pieces of information I have without knowing that we will face them, and Atalanta is obviously a really exciting project since a couple of years. They play pretty good stuff as well so for me it looks like it’s a proper football group.
