Klopp out to beat Dortmund.

Klopp is glad to be in Dortmund.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is delighted with the attention he is receiving on his return to Borussia Dortmund and the German says it is better than being in North Korea.

The Black and Yellow host Klopp's Reds at the Westfalenstadion tonight in the first leg of their Europa League quarter-final and Klopp is keen on beating his "friends" Dortmund.

"A lot has been said but it is easy for me as I just have friends here," said Klopp.

"It's better to be here than North Korea or something. I don't think about my situation, not for one second."

Klopp, who coached Dortmund for seven years, also said his former side are favourites heading into the intriguing clash.

"We have looked at the way Dortmund play but my players haven't travelled here without any hope we will get a result," added the German.

"If we are not good it will be easy for Dortmund but why should I think about this?

"Manchester United was the biggest game and biggest pressure so we are prepared for this. And you need a bit of luck."
