When they both met for the first time in 2013, Pep and Klopp were still carving the way for their legacy to be known throughout the world. They both were the managers for Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund respectively.

The German legend believes that their performance last weekend didn’t stand up to his expectations.

“We think a lot about these games. We have to. City were really strong last week and we were not at our best.”

“So, I’d like to see a game where we are at our best. It would be interesting so why don’t we give that a try? That would be nice, it could be a surprise if all of a sudden, we are good.”

“The boys did a lot of good stuff in the game, but there were a couple of things and I know that we can perform to a different level.”

“Then it’s a cup game, a one-off, and if it’s 2-2 again then it’s 120 minutes then it’s penalties, that would be really crazy to go all the way.”
