Jurgen Klopp knows Liverpool fans would prefer the Premier League title over the Champions League, but he says the club do not need to decide yet.
Bayern Munich, Bundesliga champions for the last six years, will be the visitors at Anfield on Tuesday night for the first leg of their last-16 tie.
It comes just five days before Klopp’s side play Manchester United at Old Trafford looking to maintain their title challenge, with Liverpool level on points with Manchester City and a game in hand.
‘If you could tell me we would get the Premier League title this year I would roll over and let Bayern tickle my tummy’, was one Liverpool fan’s response put to Klopp in his pre-match press conference on Tuesday, but he needed no reminding.
“For all Liverpool fans it’s the Premier League, that’s clear,” said Klopp. “But now we play Champions League and you all expect we do our best. Thank God we don’t have to make the decision today. We do not know today or tomorrow.”
