Jurgen Klopp has admitted he is itching to finally meet and speak with Marcelo Bielsa ahead of Liverpool's season opener on Saturday, though joked that language may be an issue.
The German manager will come up against last season's winner of the Championship, and wishes to compare notes with Bielsa providing his limited Spanish skills allow him to do so.
, Klopp made light of the situation and explained that his Spanish went as far as ordering a beer on holiday, before waxing lyrical about Bielsa's style and ideas.
🗣"I"d love to have a conversation with him which would be nice, but my Spanish is not so good apart from ordering a beer!" 🍻 🤣— Football Daily (@footballdaily) September 11, 2020
🗣"The style they play will suit them even more in the PL!"
