Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric admits he admires Liverpool and their manager Jurgen Klopp.
The Croatian is preparing to meet Liverpool next week in Kiev for the Champions League final - and he insists they won't be taking the Reds lightly.
Modric said, "You may think that Liverpool is not the favourite of this final, but if you watch them play then you know they deserve to be in the final.
"They have a great team and a great coach.
"When you are a player of Real, you must have ambition."
