'Napoli stubborn in a good way'

Jurgen Klopp has warned his Liverpool players to expect a Napoli side who are “stubborn in a very positive way” tomorrow night.

Klopp’s Liverpool begin the defence of their Champions League crown at the San Paolo, which they also visited in the group stage last season, losing 1-0 to a late Lorenzo Insigne goal.

“Napoli had another really good season, they have started the new one well,” the Coach said at a Press conference.

“They have some really good new players but are mainly the same. We are similar, we didn't sign a lot.

“Napoli are stubborn in a very positive way. They are creative. I enjoy analysing them.

“If we have a lucky draw then I will take it, but we want to win. Let’s play the game first and then I can decide on which result I wanted!”

The German then showered praise on Insigne and the ‘brilliant’ San Paolo dressing rooms.

“Yes,” he responded to a question about whether home advantage could help the Partenopei.

“Insigne is always smiling in my face before the game. After the game he has more reason.

“He’s a wonderful player. We are still working on defending him. Maybe one day it will happen.

“[The dressing rooms] are brilliant. For us they are exactly the same as last year. They left the away dressing room like it was.”
