Liverpool FC, led by the German coach, will face CF Monterrey Rayados on Wednesday in the semifinal of the FIFA Club World Cup.
Liverpool’s German coach, FC Jürgen Klopp, offered a press conference on Tuesday before the FIFA Club World Cup semifinal match against Mexican Monterrey Monterrey Rayados and, true to his style, the strategist made some curious comments about Everything, regarding Mexico.
Responding to a question from a Mexican reporter about football in the Latin American country, the German said he could not answer because he knows nothing about it. However, he revealed that last summer he visited Mexico for the first time.
“I was in Tulum (Quintana Roo) and I can recommend that place, it ‘s really great, ” he said. Later, Klopp asked the journalist about the geographical location of his country: “Is Mexico South America, Central America or South America?” ” More southern part of North America, with the United States and Canada,” the reporter replied.
“The influence of the south”
” Then it is North America, but the South itself,” the English team coach concluded with laughter. “The influence of the south is quite emotional in all things, which is how it should be and they are really interesting,” he added.
Regarding his rival in the semifinal of the Club World Cup, the German coach said he had “a lot of respect” for Monterrey and that he is aware that the team is in a good moment and has good players.
The two teams will meet on Wednesday in Doha, Qatar, to determine who will play the final of the tournament against CR Flamengo next Saturday, which in their respective semifinal won Saudi Al Hilal by a score of 3 to 1.
