Klopp reflects on a challenging match, comparing it to the UCL comeback against Barcelona
Liverpool’s manager expressed his admiration for his team’s remarkable comeback against Newcastle, considering it a more challenging victory than their famous turnaround against Barcelona. Despite being reduced to 10 men for a significant portion of the match, Liverpool delivered an outstanding performance at St. James Park. They staged a thrilling late comeback, thanks to two goals from their new signing, Darwin Nunez. Trent Alexander-Arnold, speaking to ‘Sky Sports’, described it as a historic performance, ranking among their best since Jurgen Klopp became their coach in 2015.
Jurgen Klopp himself, during his post-match interview, echoed his player’s sentiments and even raised the stakes higher. He considered this game to be one of the highlights of his career, surpassing the difficulties they faced in the Champions League comeback against Barcelona. In 2019, Liverpool overcame a 3-0 deficit from the first leg by securing a 4-0 win in the second leg at Anfield, etching an unforgettable chapter in the club’s and football’s history.
