Klopp relishing United clash

Jurgen Klopp is 'cool' with Liverpool drawing Manchester United in the last-16 of the Europa League.

Friday's draw threw up the tie of the competition with Liverpool set to go head to head with their long-term rival for a place in the quarter-finals.

Liverpool lost both games against United this season but with both teams outside the top four in the Premier League, the Europa League could be their best chance of qualifying for next season's competition.

Klopp believes Liverpool deserve a chance to prove themselves against United and he is happy to be drawn against the Old Trafford outfit.

"Obviously it is not easy. But you can ask my staff, when they asked me yesterday 'who do you want?' I said 'Manchester United'," Klopp told reporters shortly after the draw.

"It's great. We deserve these games, with the game yesterday. I think we have to clear something.

"We had a good game when I was here when we played against them, but we lost 1-0. It was not what we deserved on that day, but we got it.

"Life gives us the chance to make it better and that's what we have to do, and what we'll try.

"In this round, there were no easy games so we had no chance for an easy game. So we have Manchester United - cool."
