Klopp 'very, very happy' with Liverpool victory over Stuttgart

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp was delighted with their 3-0 friendly win over Stuttgart.

The Reds opened up their 2020-21 pre-season programme with a convincing win against the Bundesliga outfit thanks to goals from Roberto Firmino, Naby Keita and Rhian Brewster.

Klopp remarked afterwards, "I'm very happy, very happy. It was a super intense session for us today because the weather, wow, it rained like crazy, the pitch was really difficult – you could see the water was still on the pitch. That makes football games always tricky.

"Good organised opponent obviously but we scored nice goals and for me most important was that we felt 45 minutes [of] football is different to a 90-minute session, because in sessions you make breaks, drinks break. Here is no break, so you just have to go through.

"That was the most important thing to do today and the boys did it, they felt the intensity of the game – very good. Tomorrow we do a little bit less, Monday two sessions, Tuesday is Salzburg, interesting. So, it's all good. I think Ki-Jana rolled the ankle a little bit but apart from that they all should be fine, which is obviously very important." Follow us on Google newsTwitter and on Facebook
