Liverpool fans love Klopp’s response to Ancelotti

Liverpool fans are absolutely loving some pre-Napoli comments from Jürgen Klopp, as the boss had a very cheeky answer in response to Carlo Ancelotti’s mind games.

Liverpool face one of their toughest tests of the season on Wednesday night in Naples, and Klopp is not falling for one of the oldest tricks in the book.

New Napoli boss Ancelotti is well known for his pre-match mind games, and the Italian has been speaking in glowing terms about Klopp’s Reds.

The experienced Ancelotti called Liverpool “one of the strongest teams in Europe”, but Klopp is well aware of his reputation.

“I like Carlo Ancelotti. In Germany, we say he’s a smart fox,” said Klopp.

“He’s said very positive things about us and nice things about me before a game. It’s nice, but it’s tactics. Carlo is so long in the business.”

Fans are absolutely loving his response when asked about player relations as well, as the German refused to get involved in any pre-match antics.

“I’m not as smart as Ancelotti but I’m smart enough not to answer this question,” the manager said when asked about how manager-player relationships have changed over the years.

Three points would put Liverpool firmly in control of their group, and fans are heaping praise on the manager’s comments.
