Jurgen Klopp on the Augsburg game, the city and his Germany return


Manager Jurgen Klopp says he is delighted to make a return to Germany as Liverpool prepare to face FC Augsburg in the Europa League.

The Reds are nine points from the Top Four in the Premier League and winning the Europa League seems to be the easiest route into next season's Champions League.

They will tonight face Markus Weinzierl's men before hosting the Germans at Anfield on February 25.

"A lot depends on their selection but they're a really good German team, compact, very physical," Klopp told reporters.

"They're good, they know what they're doing, and they try to do it really well in the Europa League.

"It's not as if every single game we play we do so well and get the good results. Yes, in the Bundesliga, some results weren't so good, but everyone wants to get as far as they can in the Europa League and that's the aim of both teams.

"[A return to Germany?] I feel great [to be back], it's just a situation that happened.

"I didn't actually flee from Germany and I've always felt well here! My last memory from Germany is Oktoberfest, everything was great. The only difference here, it's a full room, just a different language.

"My cousin lives here [in Augsburg], it's a really nice town. I like the south of Germany, it's the lifestyle.

"I lived in the Black Forest myself for 19 years so I'm used to this environment and feel comfortable here. All I know is that we usually won here. I think Augsburg is cool, I really like it here, everything is very traditional, real, and you can play real football here. What more can I add?"
