We don’t have to make it bigger than it is, but it’s big,’ said Jürgen Klopp, visibly disappointed, as the poor run of the team continued to defeat Southampton.
Danny Ings’ early goal made the difference between the two sides, while Liverpool was denied a penalty after the ball hit a Southampton player’s arm. ‘I’ve heard that in the two years after Ole [Gunnar Solskjær] was there than in my five and a half years, Manchester United has missed more penalties.
Is that my fault?’ Klopp asked.
Ralph Hasenhüttl and Southampton applauded on the other side of the stands, breaking into tears after the final whistle. ‘Klopp’ is the only coach I have never scored against,’ said the Austrian after the match.
