Far from celebrating the emphatic win at St. Mary’s, Jurgen Klopp looked a broken man in the press conference. Broken at how easily the players he’ll inevitably be signing over the next 12 months blew the game.
“Tadic looked tired today and it’s a real worry. He hasn’t been himself lately on the ball and if he’s going to replace Coutinho he’ll need his head in the game. The Liverpool fans expected much more from him and were desperate to see a piece of magic that would really tear us apart.”
“We have a lot of hope for Oriol Romeo but the fans will be destroyed he didn’t bring it today. How is he going to beat Europa league sides next season if he can’t even out-fox the Ox.”
“The mood in the Liverpool dressing room is very low. Their future team mates really acquiesced far too easily and everyone’s concerned for the future of the side. These are the players who’ll be fighting for third place next year and it doesn’t look their hearts are in it.”
“Lemina will be carrying this team for the next 5 years after Can leaves in the summer and he was a washout. Frankly I don’t know how I’m going to coach these guys going forward. Although they clearly couldn’t defend which is a big part of what we’re after. Boufal signed a contract with us the day after he signed for the saints, which is the way it works around here, and he seemed so ready to really stick it to us – but where was he?
“How am I supposed to enjoy my tankard of Pilsner and bratwurst mit sauerkraut while listening to my David Hasselhoff cds tonight? It’s ruined all ruined.”
