Liverpool Boss Klopp: Fulham Are A Real Football-Playing Side

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has admitted his admiration for Fulham ahead of today's Premier League opener.

The Reds are in London for the early kickoff today.

Klopp said of the Cottagers: "It's like Southampton, or whatever, in the past. Fulham is doing really well and did last year extremely well. I met Marco [Silva] at the managers meeting in London. Yeah, getting promoted by playing football is for me one of the hardest things to do in the Championship.

 They all play football, but being a real football-playing side [with] more possession [and] all these kinds of things. Set-pieces are important but not the main thing, so it gets all my respect and that's what Fulham did. 

They were a really good team. Fabio [Carvalho] was an important part of that team. Harry [Wilson] is an important part of that team. I think he's injured so these kind of things are of course difficult.

"In a week before we play a team, or a few days before, I read a little bit about them, not only watching games, but read a little about them and then you see. 

I think they still have a few problems to solve in the transfer market but I'm not sure, [it's the] third for sure or maybe the fourth time in a row that we played the champion of the last Championship season, which is always full of confidence the opponent. Now it's away.

"Fulham, they'll be tough definitely, [it] will be a completely different game. I'm happy that we played the City game, to be honest, because we've had a little bit of a hint [at] where we are. But it's a completely different game and we have to be ready for that."
