Jurgen Klopp: Focus in on Bournemouth not Villarreal


Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says he's not thinking about the Europa League semi-final against Villarreal.

The Reds will face the Spaniards after battling past Borussia Dortmund on Thursday but the German insists the focus is on Bournemouth, Everton and Newcastle.

"I don't think about Villarreal in this moment," Klopp said.

"When we knew about the draw, we spoke about a few organisational things – who will watch them and when.

"Of course, that's what you have to do. But when it's over and organised, you have all the other things. And there are three games – Bournemouth, Everton and Newcastle – and then we go to Villarreal.

"So there's a long way to go. And we have no idea who is available for the Villarreal game, so we need to think about what's important tomorrow.

"It's not about dreaming of the Champions League or the final – we have not played one minute in the semi-final, how could we do that?

"Villarreal are not there because all the other opponents could not play football. It's completely different, they are unbelievably strong. Hopefully everybody knows about this when we go there.

"It's not a problem. It's a nice opportunity to have these two games. But before this, we have to do a few other things."
