Speaking to Sky Sports he said: “To play against Liverpool is not easy. You have to be prepared to suffer. They want to tackle with eight players.”
“We prepared our game to face eight against eight and to attack the space.
“They are a point of reference for us to work hard and try to be closer to them. It won’t be easy. Liverpool is one of the best teams in the world.
“I think to take one point against Liverpool is good. We’re talking about one of the best teams in the world. They’ve created something special for all these years.”
