"We belong there" - Liverpool proving their European credentials says Klopp

"We belong there" - Liverpool proving their European credentials says Klopp

"I think it was OK, we did our job and we are through the round".

While this match wasn't entertaining and didn't really capture how a Champions League knockout match feels like, there was a landmark event as Liverpool qualified for the Champions League quarterfinals for the first time in 9 years. I don't care. We take it how it comes.

The Merseyside club produced a lacklustre display in a 0-0 draw that saw them progress to the quarter-finals of Europe's most prestigious competition.

"The result at Anfield should be a big motivation for us on the domestic front", Casillas said. That's always a good thing for me and for the whole team.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp praised their Dutch defender, Vigil Van Dijk, for his contributions with the team since he joined them in January from Southampton.

Roberto Firmino ran clear but ended up having a shot blocked on the hour, before immediately being taken off by Klopp as Liverpool's main striker was protected ahead of the United game.

"I never had a timescale for it in my mind and thought "then we have to be there and then we have to be there".

The report also claims that Mignolet is attracting interest from an unnamed Premier League rival, as well as clubs in Serie A and the Bundesliga.

Now, a member of European soccer's royalty can look forward to the draw for the quarterfinals on March 16. Exactly seven other very good teams will be involved then.

"They've had a lot of criticism over mistakes earlier in the season but clean sheets tonight and at the weekend... it's all looking positive for them".

However, Can insists nothing has been settled and all talks have been put on hold with Liverpool chasing second place in the Premier League and into the last eight of the Champions League.

"It's normal that everybody thinks about the possibility of injury, but that can happen all the time to be honest, that's the problem", he said.
