Cardiff City boss Neil Warnock believes Saturday’s Premier League trip to Anfield could prove to be difficult.
Despite a confidence boosting 4-2 win at Fulham last weekend, 4th from bottom Cardiff know a tough game lies ahead against a Liverpool side who thumped Red Star Belgrade 4-0 in the Champions League in midweek.
Speaking at his pre-match press conference, Warnock, who made a sly joke about people from Liverpool last year, said: “It’s massive, it’s virtually impossible for any team in their current game.
“I think the front three is as good as any in the world. We’ve got to play at the top of our potential to give them a good game and hope they have an off day.
“I hope the lads are looking forward to it, it’s a special place in football, a remarkable place.”
Although he’s not a fan of former Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez, Warnock speaks highly of current boss Jürgen Klopp.
“I just like the way that he is,” he added. “He cares, he is passionate and pulls some faces doesn’t he!
“He’s created that team, he saw what weaknesses there were and shored that up.
“Yes he’s spent big money but he’s an exceptional manager and we’re very lucky to have the managers that we’ve got.”
Meanwhile, Cardiff City forward Bobby Reid, a Liverpool fan who attended last month’s 3-2 win over PSG, says he can’t wait for the match.
“I can’t wait!” confessed the 25-year-old.
“I love football and love watching games – and the PSG one was some game.
“I got a ticket late for that one and it was worth it. But I’ve got a job to do on Saturday and I have to be as professional as I can.
“I’ll be enjoying it, but at the same time I’ll be looking to do a job there.”
