Jurgen Klopp annoyed by Liverpool’s defeat to Salzburg

Jurgen Klopp admitted his frustration with Liverpool’s efficiency in Wednesday’s 1-0 defeat by Salzburg, revealing he didn’t see the recreation as a “friendly”.

The Reds fielded a combined beginning line-up with summer season signings Darwin Nunez and Fabio Carvalho beginning, and went behind to Benjamin Sesko’s Thirty first-minute strike.

Heavy-hitters Mohamed Salah, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Virgil van Dijk have been all launched on the hour mark however failed to seek out the breakthrough.

Analyzing the recreation, Klopp revealed the place Liverpool went incorrect, highlighting some aggressive Salzburg defending and their very own ineffectiveness in entrance of purpose, with Darwin Nunez typically remoted in entrance of purpose.

“We were too open, we were too wide, we weren’t connected enough in moments when you lose the ball,” he advised the membership’s web site. “It wasn’t simply the younger gamers – all of the boys can do loads higher.

“It would not really feel good however we’ll take it and get out of right here.

“We had so many chances and obviously the luck didn’t come our way. At least we got into the positions to finish it off but it’s just a shame we couldn’t do it today.

“No, for Salzburg it was undoubtedly nothing pleasant. For us not pretty much as good. Salzburg had these form of powerful challenges, however they do it very well; with respect to Salzburg, they do it very well. Sometimes I did not just like the challenges too loads but it surely’s good, nothing occurred there I believe.. Like I stated, first half too many errors.

“We fielded the boys and everything is good, they can do a lot better and they had good moments too. But especially the first half the majority of the players have to get used to what we do. Darwin was far too often alone. Everyone lost, everyone was involved in the build-up but too wide and we could only pass the ball to Darwin in the box.

“He had his moments and virtually scored, however he wants loads extra help round him. You preserve different gamers busy that they cannot give attention to him. So many issues. Second half, now think about if Darwin had been there within the field, that might have helped, too. It is what it’s—would not really feel good, however we’ll take it and get out of right here.”
