Jurgen Klopp: Merseyside derby games 'too physical'

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp believes that the Merseyside derby is too physical for him as they prepare for a trip to rivals Everton in the Premier League. Liverpool has won their last two league games 4-0 including a commanding display this weekend against Southampton. The Anfield club suffered two long-term injuries last season to Virgil Van Dijk and Thiago in the corresponding fixture. The former went on to miss the rest of the season.

“It’s always a completely different game, so I really very often don’t like the intensity of the game, it’s too much for me,” Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp said about the Merseyside Derby. “I like physical football, I have no problem with that, we play that, other teams play that, but in that game very often people put too much in. I can’t say it’s my favorite game of the year to be honest, because of that. But we have the chance to watch Everton tomorrow, we will prepare for the game and will try to make a normal but good football game.”

“Exceptional player exceptional boy. He’s the perfect signing because he has everything that a Liverpool player needs in this squad,” he added about Jota. “The technical skills, the physical skills, and he is very smart and can learn all the tactical stuff pretty quick. He can also play all positions. So it was very helpful, he has the speed and direction to finish situations off. His goalscoring record is pretty impressive.”
