19:20: Who doesn’t love Carlo Ancelotti? He’s fully equipped with the charm of James Bond, the looks of an older George Clooney and an eyebrow that makes Dwayne Johnson look like an amateur.
Anyway, he’s endeared himself to Liverpool fans after revealing that he expects Jurgen Klopp to lead Liverpool into the Champions League group stages.
The Champions League this year will be more competitive because there are some really important English teams in the competition,” Ancelotti said.
“United, City, Chelsea, Tottenham, Liverpool – I think Jurgen will win qualification.
“I hope Jurgen gets Liverpool Champions League qualification. With Liverpool in the contest, it would be much more competitive.
“The Champions League will surely be more difficult to win.”
