"But if anybody think this is the easiest draw then I can not help this person; they obviously didn't see both games against Barcelona".

The club wrote on Twitter: "We'll be opponents for 180 minutes, but whatever happens we'll remain friends for life".

'Of course, I have happy memories.

"The two games against Roma will be about qualifying for the next round, which would be the final, and all the other games are about qualifying for the Champions League next year", Klopp said. "We had a good time in the dressing room".

Who will win in the Champions League semi-final - AS Roma or Liverpool? Francesco Totti. He is incredible, unbelievable - he has everything.

"He is incredible, unbelievable". I don't know him as a person, but he looks like a good guy as well.
