Klopp: “We just didn’t play good enough football”

Jurgen tried to find the right words.

The head coach of English Liverpool Jurgen Klopp gave an interview after the first Champions League match with Real Madrid. Liverpool lost 1: 3 to Zinedine Zidane’s team.

“If you want to qualify for the semi-finals, you have to earn the right to do so. We didn’t do that tonight, especially in the first half. Fortunately, this is only the first match.

We just didn’t play good enough football to give Real Madrid more problems.

We ourselves made it easier for them. We didn’t deserve more, but one goal and the second half went well. This is a kind of life preserver.

You cannot defend against the speed of Real Madrid when you give them the ball at the wrong moment. Too often we were wrong about simple things. We should have had better possession of the ball. Real Madrid have really very fast and first-class players who are extremely dangerous in one-on-one situations. ” said the German for BT Sport.
