Bayern Munich sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic insists the team’s UEFA Champions League second round which pits them against Liverpool is a tough one.
The German champions who were seeded for the draw which took place on Monday morning, will face Jurgen Klopp’s team over two legs when the knockout stages begin in February.
“They’re the team of the hour, they’re the league leaders in England.” Salihamidzic said, according to the club’s official website.
“They play good football, they’re very physical and they’re full of energy. You need two good days. They were in the final last year, they’re a top side, it’s a tough one but these are the challenges that you look forward to as a player and that you have to overcome in your career.”
Andres Jung, another board member of the German club, said:
“Liverpool are one of the strongest teams we could’ve got. We’ll prepare well and certainly have no fear. It’ll be a great away game but the stadium isn’t that big, so we won’t have many tickets for our fans. We have respect for every team, and certainly for Liverpool. They’ll be two great games.”
