Jurgen Klopp has revealed what he thought he said to Lionel Messi after the Barcelona great’s dazzling show at the Nou Camp last week.

Messi bagged a brace, including a stunning free-kick, as Barca won the first leg of the Champions League semi-final 3-0 against a Reds side that played well but didn’t take their chances in Catalonia.

And ahead of Tuesday night’s return leg at Anfield, Klopp said – when asked if he spoke to the Barcelona superstar after the game: “I don’t know if I said something, really.

“At that moment, I might have said ‘why did you do that?!’”

As for how to deal with the Argentine in the return, Klopp added: “Wherever Messi is, he will be difficult to deal with. If you take risks against Barcelona they punish you. You have to be solid all of the time.”

“It looks like we have to be perfect.”
