He also said: “And that’s my fault because my job is to make sure that the boys have the right feelings, the right amount of confidence… and that obviously didn’t work out.” “We created some situations, but in the final moment we did not make the right decision, and that’s the problem.” “It’s always my fault. “
“The things that don’t work are my fault, the things that work are a credit to the players… if I make clear which movements make sense and we don’t do them, I need to make it clearer.”
Jurgen Klopp concluded by saying: “I can’t believe we lost it, but it’s the truth, and we have to accept that.” Allison who helped Liverpool against Manchester United could help the Reds as they went down 1-0.
