"Someone told me what was said by Beckenbauer", he said ahead of Liverpool's Premier League match against Fulham on Sunday.
Liverpool will be confident of taking home another vital three points as they're up against a Fulham side who sit 19th in the table and are consigned to relegation as they're 13 points from safety with just eight games remaining.
The 3-1 defeat to Real Madrid in Kiev last May was something of a freak result as Jurgen Klopp's side were the better team until Mohamed Salah was forced off with a shoulder injury suffered during a tangle with Sergio Ramos.
Speaking after the game, Klopp expressed his thoughts on the victory, insisting Liverpool are now back on the map after their win. They are doing so, so well during the competition that I think it would be fantastic for one of them.
This should be the ideal game for Salah to find his shooting boots and break that six game duck, while we may even see a resurrection of Shaqiri in light of Jordan Henderson's injury. I don't think we want to play each other in the next round but we'll see who we get.
New York Giants: How the Ryan Tannehill trade shockingly impacts the Giants
Miami traded last year's starter Ryan Tannehill to the Titans on Friday, so it's in the market for a new face under center. Tannehill played collegiately at Texas A&M, where he threw for 5,450 yards and 42 touchdowns in 50 games, with 25 starts.
"You know, it's been so long since we won a league title. A good season, his best with us", said the Holland global. In terms of Premier League goals the diminuitive forward, who plays out wide and not through the middle, has 16 in 29 matches - just two behind leading scorer Sergio Aguero.
"Maybe - hopefully - if we get to the final, we can think about putting it right then".
"We will have plenty of information and that's what you need before a game, but you still have to play it".
And Klopp said he is not interested in his personal legacy.
Obviously when I was growing up Ashley Cole came in and showed that you don't have to just be a defender as a full-back.
"The first step to winning a game like this: it's not about playing your best football, free-flowing, that's not possible against this quality". I'm not searching to be remembered in 50 years or whatever people speak about me.
