The Reds legend has a chance to help steer the title towards the grasp of his former club, and while Klopp hasn’t called Gerrard ahead of the weekend, the German coach revealed Liverpool already have.
‘Stevie will take it 100 per cent seriously, I am sure, without me calling him or whatever, I don’t have. The rest of the club probably already did it but I didn’t,’ said Klopp.
‘This [City vs Villa] is the game I am not concerned about, not thinking about, at all. Of all the things we speak about it is completely disrespectful to Wolves.
‘They don’t want to come here and be part of our celebrations. They come here and want to get three points, definitely. We have to be ready for this game, not the other one.’
