Jurgen Klopp, the manager of Liverpool, has retaliated vehemently after his ‘ironic’ remark was misinterpreted.
On Wednesday night, Liverpool defeated Porto 2-0 in the Champions League.
Jurgen Klopp has retaliated angrily after his recent comments about the African Cup of Nations were misconstrued.
Last week, the 54-year-old was chastised for referring to the African Cup of Nations as “a small tournament in Africa.”
Klopp hissed after Liverpool’s 2-0 Champions League victory over Porto on Wednesday night. “I didn’t call it a ‘little continent,'” he said.
“What I meant was that there is no international break until March, with a small tournament in January,” she explained.
“All I meant was that it’s ironic.”
One of our best players will miss the tournament due to injury.
“I am not a native English speaker, but it was not my intention for you to misunderstand me.”
You went ahead and added to it.
“That’s not very cool.”
When the African Cup of Nations begins in January, the Reds will be without Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, and Naby Keita.
Klopp will be hoping that the trio’s absence does not derail his team’s season.
After their 2-0 win over Porto on Wednesday, the German head coach made the following remarks.
Liverpool weren’t at their best against the Portuguese side, but they still came out comfortable winners thanks to two superb goals.
Thiago scored seven minutes into the second half with a rasping 25-yard effort into the bottom corner.
With 20 minutes remaining, Mohamed Salah sealed the victory by cutting in from the right, beating his opponent, and smashing the ball into the back of the net.
Prior to Wednesday night’s game, the Reds had already qualified as group winners after winning their first four games.
Klopp rested several of his star players for the match, though Alisson, Mane, and Salah all started.
The Reds’ manager, on the other hand, was rewarded because he got the desired result.
“It was good – we could have done better and been more composed in the first half, but we were a little frantic,” Klopp added.
“When you put a team out who hasn’t played together much, that’s to be expected.”
“Some people believe we’ll play a simple game, but we’re not here for that; Anfield is sold out, so we want to win.”
