Borussia Dortmund boss Jurgen Klopp had some kind words for Real Madrid counterpart Jose Mourinho in his Press conference.
The infamously demonstrative tactician is in the Spanish capital hoping for a reprise of the 2-1 victory he masterminded over Los Blancos in Germany a fortnight ago.
“Mourinho is nice,” said Klopp. “Very friendly even. And a very good friend.”
Borussia have had problems domestically this season but are a point clear of Real in Champions League Group C and on track to cause a shock by knocking Manchester City out.
“In the Champions League we have been very effective to date. And in the Bundesliga we are favourites in every game.”
Klopp had a novel idea for increasing his team's chances at the Bernabeu.
“I hope the goals are raised!”
