Klopp and his criticism
After the end of the engagement, Klopp acknowledged the team’s poor performance. “We played a really bad game, so their triumph was well deserved. We should have defended better. We do it normally, so it’s hard to explain why we didn’t do it today ”, noted at a press conference.
