Klopp Admits He Knows Little About Flamengo- At The Moment
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has admitted that he knows little about Flamengo ahead of the Club World Cup later this month.
The teams could meet in the final and Klopp says he will need time to prepare and study Jorge Jesus’ Libertadores winners.
“I know they won the Libertadores,” Klopp explained. “I know a few of their players. But when we play teams in the Champions League, sometimes I don’t watch them until 3 or 4 days before we play.”
Klopp insisted he would focus on Liverpool’s semi-final tie before worrying about a potential final against Flamengo.
“We have to win our semi-final first. We have to win that game so we will prepare for that first.
“We play Bournemouth next and that is who we have to focus on. We don’t know if we will even play Flamengo yet.”
The teams met in the 1981 World Club Cup Final, when a Fla side inspired by Zico and Junior thrashed Liverpool 3-0.
