Klopp reacts to Barcelona exit in Champions League

Following the Champions League semi-final draw which pitted them against Roma, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has warned his side they cannot think of Roma as an easy opponent.

The Premier League giants were drawn with their Serie A counterparts in Friday’s semi-final draws and Klopp has reacted to what many has observed to be a potentially easy draw for the Mersey side club.

“Because I knew I'd have to say something after it, I tried to think about what I feel, but it was not that I thought 'Thank God not Bayern, thank God not Real Madrid, yippee Roma' or the other way around,” Klopp told the club's official website.

“It is just the draw and I know it is very exciting, but it is good because the most important news is we are still in the competition. Whichever opponent we would have got, I would have said there is a chance because it is football - so there is a chance against Roma.

“But if anybody think this is the easiest draw then I cannot help this person; they obviously didn't see both games against Barcelona.”
