The Reds began their pre-season campaign on Tuesday with back-to-back ‘mini-games’ against Wacker Innsbruck and VfB Stuttgart – with Liverpool drawing 1-1 in both fixtures.

Alongside his reunion with his ex-club, the Liverpool boss also has a connection with his opposition manager, Bo Svensson.

The Mainz boss played under Klopp when he himself was in charge of Mainz and was appointed their head coach at the start of this year.

Speaking to, Klopp said: “The only thing I hope for my former club is they don’t beat us 4-0 because always when Mainz beats Liverpool 4-0, at the end of the season they get relegated.

Obviously the next proper coach arrived at Mainz, really pleased for them.” While Friday’s tie may only be a pre-season fixture, with an abundance of mutual respect between the two sides, Klopp will be expecting his side to be victorious and continue to show the performance levels that have already been demonstrated in training.
