Jurgen Klopp praises Unai Emery ahead of Champions League semi-final

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was full of praise for Unai Emery ahead of tomorrow’s Champions League semi-final first leg between Liverpool and Villarreal at Anfield.

“I have a lot of respect for Unai and Villarreal. I’ve analysed them properly, and wow. Impressive,” Klopp said.

“Unai is a detailed-obsessed manager who prepared for all different situations in a game. That’s what his team executes. Different ways to press and react on different results.

“It’s really, really impressive. Unai is a world-class coach and doing an incredible job there. The good thing about the analysis is we’re not involved in those games.

“We must make life as difficult for them as possible. That’s what we try to do over these two legs.”
