Jurgen Klopp Plays Down Revenge Element In Liverpool Win

Niko Kovac says his Bayern Munich side now have to concentrate on winning a German league and cup double after their Uefa Champions League exit at the hands of Liverpool.

The victory booked Liverpool's place in the last eight, and Wijnaldum - who played the full 90 minutes at the Allianz Arena - thinks people will take them even more seriously after downing Bundesliga champions Bayern.

"We can only be as good as the opponent allows and if you have few balls as a striker, disappointment is normal".

However, Dejan Lovren could come into the back four after making the bench for Liverpool's past two matches.

Milner says he wants to put things right this season, admitting "to have not won something when we have given ourselves opportunities is hard to take". Manuel Neuer, at one time considered to be the top goalkeeper in the world, has not been at his best since returning from a foot injury.

"Liverpool have shown they can win without playing well". They needed more of those goals on Wednesday, but never got them.

"There are still two titles up for grabs", Kovac said.

He then said that everything good about the goal was from Mane. "Our goal is to win both of these competitions".

Liverpool defender, Virgil van Dijk, has named Holland giants, Ajax as the team he wants Jurgen Klopp's side to play against in the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals stage.

"If he takes a normal touch, I get the ball, but he takes a world-class touch so the ball is right in front of his feet". God judges me one day and that is the only thing I am interested in.

The goal looked good from the live angle, but the replays - oh, the alternative angle replays - that's where the magic truly lies... "Still, Mane did it really well".

"I love what I do, I think I have a fantastic team out there and that's all that I need to be a happy person".

"The 1-2 took away our belief".

Klopp added that Naby Keita has returned to training after the midfielder missed Liverpool's win at Bayern due to injury while Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who suffered an injury setback on his return to action for Liverpool's under-23s last week, will be "100 percent fit" after the global break.
