​The Europa League draw brought with it a magical tie that is arguably more exciting than every Champions League tie as Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp got pitted against his former club Borussia Dortmund.

The German is a Dortmund legend and when Liverpool and Spurs cruised to wins against Man United and Spurs respectively, there was always going to be speculation of what it would be like for a return to the Westfalenstadion less than a year after leaving.

Klopp seemed pretty wary of the threat Dortmund pose even before the two were drawn against each other.

​​It appears that his former pupils are excited by the idea of facing up to the 'Normal One'.


​​Then, of course, there were the typical reaction tweets to what is surely going to be one of the most highly anticipated ties of the year.

​​"Boom," indeed, Mr. Klopp.

​​Klopp's love for Liverpool before he joined the Reds has not gone unnoticed.

​​The man is under no illusion as to how strong his former side are, as their ruthless dismissal of Tottenham showed.

​​Liverpool travel to face Borussia Dortmund on April 7 in the first leg of their quarter final tie with the return leg at Anfield set to be played a week later on April 14.
