The German Jurgen Klopp, coach of Liverpool, affirmed on Tuesday, after the defeat with Atlético de Madrid in the Champions League, who has seen “happy faces” in the rojiblanco team, but warned that “Anfield is left” in the I meet back, and there “things will be different.”
“I have seen happy faces tonight at Atlético. I understand it because it is an important victory, but this is not over yet. There are 90 minutes left in Anfield. The referee also had to deal with the environment today in the Wanda Metropolitano. Maybe there have been decisions and things you have not seen. Three minutes later there were three Atlético players lying on the ground and they were not injured ”.
“We have scored a goal, but as a result of a throw-in that I had protested. It has not been very easy. We have had a 70 percent possession and they have achieved a pretty impressive result. We played well. Exactly as we wanted. it has lacked to create clear enough opportunities, “he reviewed.
“We have to do better in the last third of the field,” said the coach, who is not “disappointed at all” for how he has played his team. “I’ve seen much worse games in my life. I didn’t expect to have 70 percent possession. I thought Atlético was going to have a little more possession, but I won 1-0 and have to defend myself.”
“The level of concentration of Atlético’s defense has been exceptional. It does so with a lot of heart, but also with concentration. We could have played better and could have felt the game better,” said Klopp, who threw several more messages with his eyes on in the return meeting on March 11.
“There is the second game in our stadium and things will be different. We know it will not be easy. Atletico will have recovered Joao Felix and Diego Costa will be in different circumstances. As long as we have eleven players with Liverpool’s shirt to play , we will try with all our strength. We will say: ‘Welcome to Anfield’, “he emphasized.
“Today you have seen what a stadium can do when it is behind their team. The public is not here to see a sensational football, but to see a good result, ”explained the coach, who changed Sadio Mané because he had yellow:“I was afraid that his opponent would hit the ground just by blowing him and seeing another card“
