PREMIER - Klopp: We are in the strongest Champions League group
As he prepares for Wednesday's blockbuster match against AC Milan, Jurgen Klopp claims his Liverpool squad faces the "strongest" Champions League group since he joined the club, defending the competition's current format.
In a difficult Group B, Klopp's Reds will play seven-time European champions AC Milan, Spanish league champions Atletico Madrid, and 2004 Champions League winners Porto.
The make-up of Liverpool's group this season, Klopp said in his pre-match press conference on Tuesday, demonstrated the strength of the current structure.
"This is the strongest group since I'm at Liverpool, no doubt about that," said the German, whose side were crowned European champions in 2019.
"I never understand that when people talk about changes in the Champions League. It's just the right thing.
"I like the Champions League how it is. This group shows there are no games where people think, 'Do we really want to watch that?'"
