And the German says City are another one of the sides he enjoys watching play, along with a couple of German sides he used to manage.

Klopp says he likes watching Manchester City and Spurs

“Whenever I have time I like to watch Dortmund because I’m still connected with them,” Klopp told DAZN Germany .

“Furthermore there are three teams: Man City, Barcelona and Tottenham . I always like to watch them.

“[Werder] Bremen I like to watch as well, but also Mainz.

“With them I’m still connected too. I also think it’s impressive the way they play under Sandro Schwarz.”

Barca are another of his favourite sides

Klopp added that he’s looking forward to the test of facing Barca.

“I have played against Real Madrid many times, but never in Barcelona.,” he contnued.

“You want to see what is possible. The cool thing about Barcelona is you’re never a favourite.
