Raphael Honigstein reveals what he knows about Jurgen Klopp’s future

"I am up to the speed of the Premier League and that was what I was looking for".

Bayern Munich have been interested in him since a rather long time and those rumours are just refusing to go away. I think if it was up to me I would have been playing from the beginning.

"Regardless of whether [Liverpool] become champions or Champions League winners, he will extend to 99.9 per cent".

Eintracht Frankfurt striker Luka Jovic is on the radar of Liverpool dating back to a year ago due to his form for the German Bundesliga club.

"He is flexible and ambitious enough to think about this opportunity, if there is another opportunity". On one hand, that is very attractive for Klopp, but on the other hand, a bit frustrating: "Bayern always signed some of his players, and that was gnawing at him".

There will be no Virgil van Dijk in the team as the Dutchman is suspended, meaning there is some huge responsibility on his shoulders going into the game.

That is a worry, especially given that Bayern boast one of world football's most lethal finishers in Robert Lewndowski.

Klopp can, of course, take these frustrations out on Bayern with victory over two legs in the last 16, and Honigstein believes Liverpool are 60-40 favourites.

That said, Liverpool might just have a surprise counter for the Poland worldwide.

Now, Jamie Carragher stated that the players lacked intensity against the Pep Guardiola team and looked like "mannequins". "I'd advise him to join Liverpool".

Apart from Liverpool and Barcelona, European champions Real Madrid have also been linked with a move for the player.

Hopefully Honigstein is right, and if his claim is true, we could see Klopp signing a new long-term contract in the future.

Fabinho resumed full training with Liverpool on Thursday in Marbella, along with James Milner.

"In January 2014 we had a friendly against Bayern in Salzburg, the coach was then still Pep Guardiola and we surprised them with our way of playing", Mane told Sport Bild.

"It will not be clear, but I see Liverpool in the lead in the end".
