Champions League: Villarreal must respect Liverpool – Unai Emery warns


 

Villarreal manager, Unai Emery, has insisted his team have earned the right to be in the Champions League semi-finals.

The Yellow Submarines will play Liverpool for a place in the final.

Emery’s men have already eliminated big European names like Juventus and Bayern Munich in the previous knockout rounds.

Villarreal players felt Bayern underestimated them in their quarter-final tie, and Emery has warned that Liverpool will not make the same mistake.

“We deserve to be here. Any side that is in a Champions League semifinal is there because they deserve to be.

“Liverpool know we have a great European presence, that we have been able to eliminate two great teams [in Juventus and Bayern.] They know it won’t be easy. This is the best Liverpool side that I can remember. They will feel like favourites, of course, but will have respect for us,” Emery said.
