Under pressure Favre received some encouraging words from the Liverpool boss who previously held the hot seat at Dortmund.

Speaking in a press conference, Favre said: “Jürgen Klopp called to ask how it went organisationally (the restart).

With a representative from a top club from Spain, we discussed the injury situation. We always have five players who have slight problems.
