Liverpool needed a late kick from Salah to save a 2-2 draw at Craven Cottage.


What did Jurgen Klopp say?

Reds manager Jurgen Klopp has criticized the attitude of his Liverpool side after they kicked off their new PL campaign with a 2-2 draw at Fulham. Liverpool needed a late equalizer from Salah to save the point at Craven Cottage after they went through a rigorous check-up on Marco Silva’s newly hyped outfit. The Cottagers led through Aleksandar Mitrovic twice, but the Reds were able to get away with a draw after second-half strikes from Mohamed Salah and substitute Darwin Nunez scored his league debut.

The red boss said that the best thing in the game is the result. According to Jurgen Klopp, they get a point from a very bad game on his part. Now the question is how can this happen? Klopp was already telling their colleagues that the attitude wasn’t right in the beginning. Then they wanted to fight back, but it was not easy – the pitch was dry, that’s all, and they played into their hands.

Jurgen says that when they had a bit of direction they were in front of their net and even when they were 1-0 down they probably had big chances. The result is ok. The German doesn’t think they deserve more, but the performance is massively improvised.


What else did the Liverpool Manager say?

When asked if the head coach had said some harsh words for his half-time side as they tracked 1-0 to Mitrovic’s back post, Jurgen smiled and said Yes! They can’t always hug boys. They usually do it when they deserve it. The first half they started the game, the opposite of what they wanted. They didn’t find a direction and everyone was under pressure. They couldn’t break the lines.

There was a clear signal before the game that they had to take risks. They’ve been losing balls, and every challenge they’ve won, every chance, every shot, is big for them. Jurgen Klopp says they never had momentum. They could win the game, they had great chances, but that would probably be a little too much.
