Jurgen Klopp Reflects on Liverpool’s Performance Against Fulham
The manager of Liverpool Football Club, Jurgen Klopp has reflected on his team’s first game against Fulham.
The Premier League’s runner-up from last season were held to a 2-2 scoreline by the newly promoted side. According to Klopp, he was happy with the result but believes his team does not deserve to take any point from the game.
Best thing about the game is the result. We played a really bad game. The attitude was not right at the start. The result is fine, we didn’t deserve more, but the performance is massively improvable. We never had momentum, we could have won the game as we had the bigger chances, but we probably didn’t deserve to win.
Klopp took responsibility for the performance of the team but insisted that it will be better if they don’t bring such a performance again.
It is my responsibility – I am not sure where I got it wrong between City and today but something happened to make us play this type of game. It’s better if we don’t do this again. We were not in the game from the start, it was difficult to get back on track. We never had a positive situation. They had so many little moments where they could gain confidence. That is the problem – you have to fight to get momentum back.
The only light in the game was the performance of Uruguay’s Darwin Nunez who played a big part in the two goals scored by Liverpool. The supporters of the Reds will hope they pick up when they play Crystal Palace on Monday, August 15th, 2022.
