Ex-international Toni Kroos will be full of praise for opponents Liverpool and Jürgen Klopp before the upcoming Champions League final next Saturday (9:00 p.m./DAZN).
“I think Liverpool is definitely a class stronger than in 2018,” said Real Madrid’s professional in an interview with “Bild am Sonntag”.
The two teams had already faced each other in the final of the most important European club competition.
In a “50:50 game”, Real won 3-1, especially thanks to the serious mistake by Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius.
Since then, however, a lot has happened in Liverpool. “They have become stronger in the squad width, they have improved qualitatively in the goal,” Kroos praised the development of the English.
work by Jürgen Klopp “Output”
Of course, Reds team manager Jürgen Klopp also had a share in this. “He created an absolute world classmanship. His work is outstanding,” enthused Kroos. “He is also an outstanding ambassador for Germany, I think. He has success, arrives with his kind – I really feel nothing but respect for him.”
However, real does not go to the final as an outsider. The catch -up hunts against Paris, Chelsea and Manchester City showed this, said Kroos. “Not many teams would have come back in these situations. We made it because we believed in it.”
