Jurgen Klopp believes Liverpool’s participation in the Audi Cup will be the perfect preparation for the 2017/18 season.
The Reds boss, who was beamed into the Munich launch of the competition by hologram from Melwood, is relishing the return to his homeland.
Liverpool will play two matches at the Allianz Arena on August 1 and 2. European heavyweights Bayern Munich and Atletico Madrid will also take part with AC Milan likely to complete the quartet. The Serie A outfit’s involvement currently depends on their Europa League qualifying commitments.
“With this tournament coming 12 or 14 days before our season starts it has very high relevance” said Klopp
