Liverpool head coach Jurgen Klopp has come out to say he is sure Manchester United will not be beaten by any other Liverpool manager the way his side thrashed United anytime soon. This is in reaction to his side’s 5-0 thrashing to Manchester United.
Jurgen Klopp said the scoreline was an is unexpected and “insane” one too. Mohamed Salah scored a hat-trick on either side of half-time after Naby Keita and Diogo Jota had given Liverpool a 2-0 lead in the opening 13 minutes. The win which takes Liverpool second, a point behind Chelsea – was their most significant victory at Old Trafford.
We have Respect for the Opponents- Jurgen Klopp
And speaking about it, he said: “It is a perfect day, a big one. This is a little chapter in the history of the club.” He also said: “People will talk about it in the future because it won’t happen again in a long time, if ever.” The German concluded by saying: “What can I say? Did I expect that? No. “The result is insane. It is special, but we don’t celebrate like crazy. We have respect for the opponents.” “We were lucky in some moments, and United are not in their best moment.” the Fact that he said he has respect for his opponent is what fans have been talking about. Many said that was why Liverpool stopped scoring, especially with Paul Pogba’s red card.
The result, which was only Klopp’s second win at Old Trafford since becoming Liverpool manager in 2015, extends their unbeaten run in the English Premier League and other competitions. Salah also spoke about the victory as he said: “I think it is great to win 5-0 here,” said Salah, who is the first opposition player to score a Premier League treble at Old Trafford. “We knew before the game it would be tough if we did not play our game.”
The Egyptian also said: “We know what it takes to win the Premier League. We did it two years ago.” “From our heads from pre-season, we need to win the Premier League, and hopefully, we go for that.” After the game, Jurgen Klopp said he knows Salah wants to remain at Liverpool because he enjoys football.
