Juventus are the favorites to win the Champions League, says Jurgen Klopp as adding that he has 'no clue' whether Liverpool can defend their European trophy.
Liverpool won the Champions League last season after beating Tottenham in the finals but Klopp doesn't think his side is favorite this season. The former Borussia Dortmund coach has instead picked Serie A giants Juventus to win the trophy despite not making it past the quarter-finals in any of the last three seasons.
"Juventus were my favorites before the season started but obviously I don’t watch Italian football enough because I cannot work out why they are not 10 points ahead at the top of Serie A," he said.
"They have the biggest squad I have ever seen in my life; quality players too, it’s crazy. The Bayern Munich squad is also massive, PSG are incredible when they are all fit, you can never discount Barcelona and let’s not forget Manchester City because the Champions League will be one of their big targets. I have no clue how far we can go but there’s no need to think about it yet because at the moment all we need to concentrate on is Atletico on Tuesday."
Route to finals
"The Reds beat the likes of Barcelona and Bayern Munich en route to the Champions League trophy last season so no team strikes fear into them anymore. I have no clue if we can win the Champions League again but we should be ready to go for it. What I know and what we showed last year is that we can beat the best."
"It doesn’t mean we will, it just means we can, and that is the only thing I have to know."
