​Liverpool boss Klopp gives hilarious response to Luis Diaz advice on Benfica

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp admits he is asking the likes of Diogo Jota and Luis Diaz for advice on Benfica.

The Reds are set to take on the Lisbon-based powerhouse in the Champions League quarter-finals on Tuesday, with the first leg taking place in Portugal.

Diaz joined Liverpool from Portuguese club Porto in January, while Jota plays for the Portugal national team.

And Klopp has said he couldn't understand anything Spanish-speaking Diaz had to say on Liverpool's Portuguese opposition.

He said at a press conference: "He [Diaz] tried for 10 minutes but I didn't understand a word.

"With Vitor Matos, Pep Lijnders and Diogo Jota, we have enough experts in Portuguese football, but we did analysis as normal anyway and had a meeting this morning."

Klopp added of Benfica: "There is a lot of quality and experience in this team. It is an interesting challenge. That is how it should be. I am really happy and I am really looking forward to it."
