Liverpool boss Klopp offers thoughts after another disappointing game
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has offered his thoughts on their latest draw, and claimed that while his side will feel upset they did not put away the masses of chances they had, it is not the end of the world.
A point is better than nothing, and with Maribor still to play, there could be six points up for grabs for the Reds, and it seems Klopp is keeping his mind on that.
One player who did come in for some criticism from fans was Lloris Karius, who was at fault for the goal Liverpool conceded according to many, but Klopp refused to blame the keeper, instead focusing on the fact he thought the free-kick award was harsh.
Klopp spoke with BT Sport after the game and said: “It was a crazy game. To create all those chances and only score one goal feels average.
“What can I say? We created, created and created against a very defensive-orientated team. Where is the real point for criticism?
“We tried with all we had. The effort was great. We controlled the game from start to finish so we should win it comfortably. It was disappointing.
“On another day it could have been three or four. The performance was decent but not enough to win the game.
“I thought we defended well for the majority of the game. But we have to finish the game off and be more ruthless.
“At this moment we are not the most lucky team in the world. The free-kick from which they scored was not a foul, although it was a brilliant free-kick.
“But the only target is to get through the group and that is still possible. We should have won both games but I’m certain we are strong enough to qualify.”
