Liverpool are preparing to host Leicester City today, October 5 in the Premier League.

Ahead of the game, during a press-conference, Jurgen Klopp spoke out on Brendan Rodgers return to Anfield.

Rodgers has coached the Reds from 2012 to 2015 and has recently claimed that he is looking forward to returning, meanwhile Klopp insists that his reception will be good.

“He is doing really well – and to be honest, I am not surprised about that,” said Klopp.

“I knew when I came here that he was not the reason that things did not work out. Since then he has done an incredible job at Celtic and now at Leicester.

“A lot of players were in before him and are still there, but [he has made] good signings as well, really good signings, and a brilliant team. What they do is really good.

“I don’t have to say that because I think everybody knows it in the moment when you watch the Leicester games, it is just exciting, they are fresh, they are good. Just good.

“They defend well, play football and especially [their] counter-attacks are pretty threatening. The reception will be good, from my side and from the supporters as well, but still it is not a friendly game and that’s what we want to make sure.

“We are there to perform as well and hopefully that’s what we will do.”
