Jurgen Klopp talks Barça and the difference between Spain and England
The German coach offered his opinion in an interview with the Daily Mail
Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp spoke about Barcelona and Messi in his recent interview with Daily Mail, explaining the differences between Spain and England.
"The biggest difference in Spain is that Barcelona can play 50 percent of their games with their B team. There are games where Messi runs 4.3km, but scores 5 goals. That’s a recovery session. England has no recovery session, in any game." he added.
The German coach also praised Barça's style and how they're special:
"Barcelona are different. They play all over, they go to so many places that even they themselves don’t know where they are. We (Liverpool) played them in London. In the tunnel, they were like *yawning & stretching, looking around, saying: 'Oh this is Wembley'* But yes we did beat them. Yet, in that match, Barça could have scored five goals."
