Jurgen Klopp defends attitude of Liverpool players after 4-0 defeat to Manchester City. A spiky Klopp defended the attitude of his Liverpool players.
The Premier League champions were brought back down to earth as City dominated at the Etihad Stadium.
But despite the 4-0 defeat, Klopp defended his players afterwards, quickly downplaying any notion that they may have not been fully focused after celebrating their title win over the weekend.
“I saw a brilliant attitude. I saw fight. We didn’t behave like somebody who became champions a week ago – that was all good.” Klopp told Sky Sports
“We lacked fluidity, that’s for sure. And in some 50-50 situations they were quicker than us in mind.”
“They used their chances and we didn’t. City were 100 per cent deserving, of course, but a 5-3 would have been possible as well. But it’s 4-0 and we have to take that.”
“City are incredible. I’ve seen their games – they haven’t played a bad game all season. Even when they lost they still played really good football. But in the end the situation is like it is.”
