Jurgen Klopp chooses Juventus as the favorite team to win the Champions League

By db-admin

DBasia.news –  Juventus rated Jurgen Klopp as the strongest candidate for the Champions League this season. The Liverpool manager highlights the quality of the Il Bianconeri’s squad.

Klopp assesses that Juventus possesses a squad with quality players that are evenly distributed in each line. He was also surprised that Juventus did not top the Serie A standings and maintain long-distance distance with rival teams.

“Juventus were my favorite (Champions League champions) before the season began, but obviously I didn’t watch enough Italian football as I couldn’t be sure why they didn’t lead 10 points at the top of Serie A,” Klopp said on Goal.

“They have the biggest squad I have ever seen in my life; quality players too, this is crazy,” he continued.

Aside from Juventus, Klopp also does not want to underestimate other candidates in his team’s efforts to defend the Champions League title. Teams like Bayern Munich, PSG, Barcelona and Manchester City.

“Bayern Munich’s squad is also great, PSG is amazing when they are all fit, you can never ignore Barcelona and don’t forget Manchester City as the Champions League will be one of their big targets,” Klopp added.

“I don’t know how far we can go, but there’s no need to think about it anymore as right now what we need to focus on is (the fight against) Atletico on Tuesday,” he concluded.
