Jurgen Klopp insists Porto will be tough test for Liverpool and reveals Pep Lijnders role in gameplan

Jurgen Klopp insists Liverpool have to respect Porto after they were drawn against the Portuguese side in the quarter-finals of the Champions League ? but revealed he has a secret weapon to call upon.
The Reds avoided the biggest sides left in the draw, such as Barcelona, Juventus and Manchester City, and landed the team that many consider to be the weakest left in the last eight of the competition.
But Klopp will not be taking Porto lightly after they came from behind to beat Roma in the last 16 and says assistant Pep Lijnders will play a big role in preparing for the game.
Porto, who Liverpool faced last season, fought back superbly against Roma (Picture: Getty) ?What can I say" It?s Porto and we?ve played there already and we know how good we had to be last year,? Klopp told Liverpool?s official website, having won easily against Porto en route to the final last year.
?The result in the end was a strange one; it was very good for us, of course, but it was a strange one. In the second leg, we saw the character of Porto and the quality they have.
