LONDON: Manchester United is an exceptional team and its midweek comeback win over Atalanta in the Champions League showed it has the quality to cause any team problems, Liverpool boss Juergen Klopp said on Friday. United was 2-0 down to the Italian side at Old Trafford before mounting a spirited second-half comeback to win and move to the top of its group.
Former United midfielder and television pundit Paul Scholes suggested Klopp, whose side visits Old Trafford on Sunday, may have been "rubbing his hands together" at halftime after watching its first-half performance, but the German manager said that was not the case.
"I wasn't rubbing my hands watching that game, there was no reason for it. Atalanta caused United some problems but even in the first half, United had three clear-cut chances," Klopp told reporters. "The second half was a pure power presentation of United going for it. With the quality they have, they can cause any team problems." Agencies
