Eintracht Frankfurt boss Adi Hutter has revealed Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is rooting for his team in tonight’s Europa League clash at Stamford Bridge.
Liverpool overcame a 3-0 first-leg deficit to beat Barcelona 4-0 at Anfield on Tuesday night and book their place in a second consecutive Champions League final.
Hutter revealed he congratulated Klopp after Liverpool’s victory over Barcelona, and Klopp responded by wishing Eintracht Frankfurt all the best against Chelsea on Thursday night.
“He wished everything well for Eintracht Frankfurt,” Hutter said, according to ESPN. “I did congratulate him for getting to the final. I watched the game and I was enamoured with the match.
“If you believe something then you can put that across to his team. His team played great. They had passion and were brave. They have been like that all year. I hope my team play like that.
“In the Europa League and Bundesliga we have played like that. Everything is possible. The favourite is Chelsea, but everything is possible and we can get to the final.
“I think it was impressive how Liverpool played as a team and won this game. The team spirit was great. It won over individual class.
“They had the desire and passion to win that game. That’s something we will need tomorrow. Those are characteristics that we have. We will want to bring that. It is important we do that tomorrow.”
