When asked how the Watford players would celebrate their 1-0 win over Liverpool on Saturday, Ranieri said: “There will be no pizza! If I take a clean sheet, I pay for dinner.
“A pizza is insufficient. It would be a meal “He made a joke.
Jurgen Klopp, the Reds’ manager, was also lauded by Ranieri, who characterized him as a “really good manager.”
“It’ll be a fantastic match. I need to make sure that everything is in order “According to the 69-year-old.
“I used to monitor his training sessions when he was at Borussia Dortmund.
“He’s a fantastic manager who has won everything, and I’m looking forward to meeting him on Saturday.”
