Liverpool vs Flamengo: What has been said?

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp admits Flamengo will present a tough test in the Club World Cup final in Qatar.

“Tough game, a really tough game. But we watched the game (against Al Hilal), I saw a lot and we will watch more games,” said Klopp.

“One game is important but it is not all about that. It was an open game for a long period.

“We will see who deals better with the circumstances, who has more right decisions.

“We will be a different opponent, of course.

“With Jorge Jesus as their manager, of course there’s a European influence and that’s it, but the players themselves already have quality.

“If there would not be a European coach, it would already be difficult. With Jorge Jesus, (he is) very experienced, very successful in Portugal and now in Brazil as well.

“We have a lot of respect for that but at the end we will try our best and we will see how it will work out.”
