Klopp: “This is not the game that we will talk about in 20 years”

The head coach of Liverpool explained for the match against one of the worst teams in the Premier League.

Liverpool, West Bromwich

Jurgen Klopp spoke about the match against West Brom. The team missed the victory – 1: 1. According to the German, the players should only blame themselves, but admits that it is very difficult to play against closed opponents.

“I don’t think anyone could have expected West Brom to play like that in the first half. Scheme 6-4 or something like that. I think we are fine.

In the second half, it was not quite like that. They had at least three counterattacks, too many corners. Therefore, today one point instead of three.

It is very difficult to constantly face ten footballers. They did their job. West Brom have earned a point. We didn’t finish the game, we should have done better.

They played different football against Villa. It was clear today that there will be protection and hope for standards.

This is not the game that we will be talking about in 20 years, but the one in which we did not play as well as we could “, – summed up the coach.


Liverpool will face Newcastle in the next round.
