Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp has spoken of his admiration for Arsenal coach Arsene Wenger. 

The German manager's side face Wenger on Wednesday night in the Champions League, in the return fixture of their win away at the Emirates Stadium by two goals to one, thanks to a late Robert Lewandowski strike.

Klopp said: "For me, he is Sir Arsène Wenger, he is really something, I love him." 

But the 46-year-old, who has been likened to Wenger in the past admitted there are differences between the two.

"You think many things are similar? I hope so in some moments, but there are big differences, too. He likes having the ball, playing football, passes … it's like an orchestra, but it's a silent song, yeah? I like heavy metal.

"When I watch Arsenal in the last 10 years, it is nearly perfect football, but we all know they didn't win a title. In Britain they say that they like Arsenal but they have to win something. Who wins the title? Chelsea, but with different football, I would say.

"This is the philosophy of Arsène Wenger. I love this but I cannot coach this because I am a different guy.' 

Klopp last week signed a new deal at Borussia Dortmund, keeping him at the club until 2018 and despite his love for the man, will be looking to damage Wenger's hopes of Champions League group stage progression with victory in Dortmund on Wednesday night, in what promises to be a cracking game.
