I laughed, because it's a tough group obviously: Klopp on UCL draw

Five times winners Liverpool's Champions League group was revealed after Thursday's draw and fans have had somewhat of a mixed reaction thanks to the difficulty level of the opponents.

However, Jurgen Klopp has always been one to relish the biggest of ties and the manager addressed the draw while talking to liverpoolfc.com.

He said: "I laughed, to be honest, pretty loud because it is a tough group obviously. 

"It's Champions League, so that's how it is, and you have to play the best teams in Europe, and obviously some of them are in our group! 

"We played, I don't know how often, already against Porto, so they will be waiting for us. We have obviously a little bit of [an] open bill with Atletico, and AC Milan, a historical one obviously. 

"So, I think our supporters should be looking forward to it – we do, for sure. 

"I know that people sit always at home and think, 'Ah come on, that would be cool, then you have this team together and the worst of pot four and the worst of pot one' and all this kind of stuff. 

"So, we didn't get that obviously but we're still pretty ambitious and would like to show the really hard work from last year, qualifying for the Champions League, that it was worth it. That's how we will play the games."

Liverpool will be going in expecting to get out of the group and once again making waves in the competition and a strong showing in the group stages would be an excellent launching pad for that.
