Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp says his side are still the underdogs in the Premier League title race compared to Manchester City and likened the Reds to Rocky Balboa. 

There is plenty of excitement surrounding Liverpool ahead of the new season after they spent more money than any other Premier League side in the transfer window, but Klopp wants supporters to keep their feet on the ground.

Per the Mirror‘s David Maddock, he said:

“I know a lot of people think that because we were that active in the transfer window but that is part of the business, it doesn’t decide anything.

“It has been clear for ages we want to be champion of England, but how can we say that? What about [Manchester] United, what about the other clubs.

“The champions Manchester City did not lose any player and brought in Mahrez, so it doesn’t make them weaker.

“They are top quality. We are still Rocky Balboa, not Ivan Drago. We are the ones who have to do more, fight more, and that must be our attitude. We have to be like Rocky.”
