But he couldn't resist a hilarious dig as he poked fun at Bielsa over the infamous 'spygate' incident that sent shockwaves through the Championship 18 months ago.

"His teams are exceptional. I analysed some games and looked at it. Different approach.

"I like him without knowing him as a proper character. Hardest working of all of us maybe."

Leeds head to Anfield for a league match for the first time since 2003 and Klopp expects the visitors to be "well drilled" and "organised".

He added: "Leeds won't open up and be naive.

"They are well drilled and the things they do are absolutely brilliant. They are really good organised but they will face challenges.

"The Premier League is different to the Championship, but they will do well in the Premier League, 100 per cent.

"If we are not ready for intensity then we have a problem. They are fresh and will be charged.

"But we will be as well, so let's give it a go."
