Video: Jurgen Klopp Compares Chelsea to His Old Borussia Dortmund Team

Jurgen Klopp insists Chelsea remind him of his old Borussia Dortmund team.

The Liverpool manager spoke to the media this afternoon ahead of his side’s clash with Chelsea on Sunday.

And it appears he isn’t buying into any belief that Frank Lampard is having to rely on kids to make Chelsea successful during their transfer ban.

Lampard has pushed Tammy Abraham, Mason Mount and other academy graduates to the forefront of his team and got success over recent weeks.

Klopp sees comparisons between Chelsea and his early Dortmund team, while also believing that stars like Abraham, Mount and Callum Hudson-Odoi – who yesterday signed a new five-year deal at the club – are already £60million players:

Abraham has scored seven goals in six appearances to kick the season off, while Mount has three goals in six games.

Lampard’s side beat Wolves 5-2 at Molineux last weekend and should be confident welcoming Liverpool to Stamford Bridge despite the midweek 1-0 defeat to Valencia in the Champions League.
