Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp has come out to admit that Alisson Becker’s errors cost Liverpool vs Manchester City. He, however, revealed that he expects the Brazilian goalkeeper to come back stronger in future games.
According to him, he saw lots of good play from his boys in the game at Anfield, and they might’ve gotten a decent result minus the goalkeeping errors.
He added that his goalie only had a bad game, a kind of game that the best players across the globe experience from time to time.
His words, “We made two massive mistakes and [it was] pretty much game over,” he told reporters. “In a game when you have such a good moment, these two goals killed off the game. Everybody knows that.”
On Alisson, “I spoke to him a few seconds ago. He’s obviously very disappointed. He was like ‘not today, not today’. I said to him ‘that’s the problem with mistakes, you cannot decide when you make them, the only thing you can do is learn from them.”
“That’s what he will do and he will make sure it never happens to him again. Tonight it was decisive, but that’s OK. He saved our lives I don’t know how often, and he’s absolutely a world-class goalie.”
“Tonight some things went a little bit wrong and we have to take that.”
On what he told Allison, “I said to him ‘we have stands, you can shoot the ball there!”
“Look, it’s a mistake, but different things came together. We didn’t offer exactly the right things. In the first half, Ali played exceptional football and was really calm on the ball, passed it in small spaces, exactly what we wanted him to do.”
“Then in the beginning of the second half he didn’t do that. He didn’t see the offers because we didn’t make them in the right way, and then the problem is that he doesn’t shoot the ball somewhere far away from the danger spots.”
“He knows that. I can’t help him through the night. We all have nights like this, and tomorrow he will be OK again.”
