The German coach is happy to face the Rossoneri.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has praised Zlatan Ibrahimovic as one of the best players in the world ahead of his side's crucial Champions League clash with

AC Milan


Milan have managed to reach the Champions League after many years and will play their first match in the group stage against Liverpool. The match, which will take place at Anfield, is known as a classic confrontation between the two giants of the competition, and now the club has praised the Rossoneri.

He said:

“I have more in mind than the two finals but if you think of any European battle, LFC v AC Milan is a must-watch. Milan have not been in CL for years but are doing well for 18 months.

“They started this season good so it’ll be tough. There are a few nice games in this CL, this is one.”

“It’s about getting enough points to get through so we should not waste time. It’s a long time since we had a home game at Anfield [with fans].

“European nights at Anfield…I can’t wait to experience that again.”

Klopp added on Ibrahimovic:

“Zlatan! What a player. I think I saw vids of him when he got injured and then early enough, he fought back with ‘lions don’t rest long’ or whatever.

“He’s a man for exceptional moments. If he’s not playing, Giroud will play. All really good players.

“Zlatan is one of the best players this game has ever seen. He knows that and he tells us. I like that. There is still fuel in the tank and he squeezes every drop out. He’s capable to play in every league and that is exceptional.”
