Jurgren Klopp insists he is happy with Liverpool’s 4-4 draw with Greuther Furth as the manager praised the performances of individual players after an “absolutely superb” camp
- Liverpool drew 4-4 in the second pre-season friendly from Greuther Fürth
- Jurgen Klopp’s side were exposed defensively by the German second division side
- Luis Diaz and Darwin Nunez’s performances will make Klopp optimistic
Liverpool needed a late equalizer from Mo Salah to avoid an embarrassing defeat by second division side Greuther Furth but Jurgen Klopp isn’t worried.
The Reds ended their Germany camp with an entertaining but rather unassuming performance, but Klopp insists it was mostly the result
“You could see it now, last day of camp; Traveling, playing, traveling is always a bit exhausting. But it is and you have to go through it, we did that. Most importantly, nobody was hurt.
“Of course nobody wants to concede four goals, but you could see that in the second half we tried to build up our game and we were late, played the ball too late, the first contact wasn’t good and that’s how we got them back in the game.” On the other hand, to be honest, he scored really, really nice goals.
“So many good individual performances and the most important thing is that we have about 50 minutes for everyone and nobody got injured here either.” “A good camp and I’m really happy.”
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is not concerned that his side scored four goals in the friendly
“The camp was first class, absolutely first class – that’s all we can say,” added the manager. “And if we can, we will try to come back because the circumstances were perfect and we were able to do whatever we wanted.”
“We got a lot of support from the local club, SV Aasen, they were really very helpful, that was nice.” It’s really nice that Greuther Fürth came here to play us because for us we’re almost on our way home now and it was quite a journey for them to come here.
“But I think the few people that were here and everyone [watching] on screen… I know nobody wants to concede four goals, but it was eight! Like I said, it’s fine.’
