Bayern Munich legend Franz Beckenbauer wants Jurgen Klopp as manager

Champions League: Liverpool ease past Bayern Munich 3-1 to reach last eight

Despite starting on the bench for the Champions League clash against Bayern Munich, the Brazilian player soon had the responsibility of replacing club captain Jordan Henderson, and did a good job even with all the pressure on the game.

The Polish forward was this season's top scorer in the Champions League ahead of the meeting but fired off just two shots in the entire 180 minute tie, thanks to the work of Virgil Van Dijk and the Reds' defence.

"I think we all know his flaws and one of his biggest flaws was his inconsistency because I don't think he was quite sure what he was going to do, never mind the defenders or anybody else".

"I'd like to congratulate Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp".

"Today we didn't play like in the Bundesliga, of course I don't know why". That says something about the team itself.

"There are some places in the world where whichever team would struggle".

" We will see what we can do with it but it's still fantastic for us that LFC as a club, we really are back for the last games of global top football".

Liverpool, like Van Dijk, also have plenty of scope to develop and improve, and that is why they have a real chance to win the Premier League, Champions League or both this season.

Last season's finalist booked a spot in the next round after beating Bayern Munich 3-1 on aggregate with Van Dijk bagging his first Champions League goal for Liverpool.

"You saw after the second goal how much quality they have", the Croatian said.

Alex Ferguson and Jose Mourinho won a countless number of titles by winning games 1-0 on a regular basis. The same applies to Messi, who has not been eliminated from the competition by an English team since Chelsea beat Barcelona in the semifinals en route to their win in 2012. He added: "I have a lot of duels today, it was very hard because I was alone". Playing your best football, free-flowing, is not possible against this team because you can not use your speed really.

"So even playing away from home, we worked well during the week, we were confident for the game here".
