A day after Liverpool’s goalless draw at Anfield against Manchester United, Jurgen Klopp remained… gutted, feeling that his team deserved all three points, if not for anything else, at least for their positive approach to the game, unlike their guests, who, for the most part of it, looked perfectly fine sitting back.
Most things Manchester United did were completely clear. Why should I talk about them sitting back before the game? That’s not my job. Jose obviously did what he thinks is right, or what he wants to do, and that is OK. It doesn’t make life easier for us but I can’t moan and say ‘come on, open up a little bit’. That’s not how it is
the German told reporters.
They want to win the league and I am sure we couldn’t play like this in Liverpool after 125 years without the title. We cannot sit back and say ‘let’s wait’ – that is not possible
the Reds manager said, before repeating what he seems to strongly believe, that his Liverpool will fight for the title until the end of the season, and then next season again, and the season after that.
We have to do whatever is necessary and we will be challengers. We will be challengers for the next few years no problem. We showed big heart, we were brave, I thought we were smart in doing the right thing at the right moment, but in the end it didn’t work out. We take it like it is. If you really want to know who we are, watch the full 90 minutes of our last few games and tell me we were not good
