Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp has reacted to his side’s Champions League quarter-final draw with FC Porto.

Liverpool were drawn alongside the Portuguese giants, FC Porto, when the draw for the quarter-final took place in Nyon on Friday.

Klopp said Liverpool have to respect Porto, adding that the Reds will prepare very well for the clash.

“What can I say? It’s Porto and we’ve played there already and we know how good we had to be last year,” Klopp told Liverpool’s official website.

“The result in the end was a strange one; it was very good for us, of course, but it was a strange one. In the second leg, we saw the character of Porto and the quality they have.

“I could not be further away from thinking it’s the best draw because it isn’t – it is just the draw, it’s the opponent we have to prepare for and that’s all we will be thinking about from when we start preparing for the game.

“We have a specialist for Porto in our own team in Pep Lijnders being there in the past – and he always speaks with so much respect for that club.

“We will have plenty of information and that’s what you need before a game, but you still have to play it. Now we know it, let’s prepare.”
