LIVERPOOL (ENGLAND) – Lazio have a special fan in the race for the Scudetto. It is the champion coach of Europe and the world, Jurgen Klopp who from Liverpool , interviewed by RaiSport for "90 / o Minute", answers the question of who will win the Italian championship:
"Lazio. He has Lucas Leiva who was here in Liverpool, and Immobile who was a player of mine (at Borussia Dortmund n..dr). I support them: I'm sorry for Sarri, but Lazio are having a great season, it's a surprise ".
Klopp: "Juventus is the favorite for the conquest of the Champions League".
And speaking of Sarri, Klopp reiterates that Juventus is in pole position for the Champions League: "Juventus have the richest squad, it is my favorite – says the Reds' technician -. It is enough to see what team he has, what people go on the bench and who does not even go there, to believe that he is the strongest ".
As for Liverpool, Klopp reveals that “last season I started thinking that we could win the Champions League when we eliminated Barcelona in the semifinals. This year the great rival is Atletico Madrid because it is the team we face in the round of 16 ".
"Klopp said he doesn't know why we don't have 10 points ahead, but he also said that Italian football doesn't follow him: so that's the reason." Maurizio Sarri jokes about the declarations of the Liverpool manager, who also indicated Juventus among the favorites for the Champions League: “In any case, even the Liverpool squad doesn't seem badly to me – added the Juventus coach -. Jurgen is one of the nicest people I have ever met, here she is taking off the role of the favorite ”.
