Jurgen Klopp before Tottenham: Roberto Firmino injury update & a joke at Pep Guardiola’s expense

Jurgen Klopp before Tottenham

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp faced the press on Tuesday at Melwood days before his side’s Champions League final against Tottenham.

The Reds will take on Spurs in Madrid on Saturday night.

Liverpool have had the better of Tottenham in the Premier League this season.

Liverpool beat Spurs 2-1 both home and away.

Roberto Firmino injury update before the Champions League final

Roberto Firmino last appeared for Liverpool in an 11-minute cameo in a 3-0 loss away at Barcelona.

The Brazilian has been struggling with a muscular injury for the past month.

However, Klopp has suggested that Firmino will be fit for the final this weekend.

As expected, Klopp also confirmed that Naby Keita is out of the final through injury.

Joke at Pep Guardiola’s expense

A Spanish journalist dredged up old quotes from Man City’s Pep Guardiola at the presser.

Earlier in the season, Guardiola claimed that it was more important to win the Premier League than the Champions League.

Man City then went on to pip Liverpool to the title.

Guardiola previously said:

A lot of big clubs are not here now in these stages, so what is important is how you handle things for 11 months.

That is why I have said many times the Premier League, for me, is the most important title, showing every three days that you are there.

Klopp hit back with his own stinging reply.
