After successfully securing a Champions League spot for the 2021-22 season, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp said the feat was incredible even after suffering so many injuries. Liverpool beat Crystal Palace 2-0 at Anfield on Sunday and as a result the team finished third in the table to advance to the Champions League. Sadio Mane scored both goals for the Reds in the game against Crystal Palace.
“Outstanding, the best I could have dreamed of – we wanted that feeling, that game, that atmosphere. To finish the season in third is amazing, I can’t believe it – thanks boys, I can’t believe how it went. worked the last few weeks, amazing. Rhys Williams and Nat Phillips are both cut and sewn, Rhys hasn’t trained for three days, Gini Wijnaldum left the club and we all love him in pieces, ”Klopp said on BBC Radio 5 Live, as reported by Goal.com. “We will miss him so much, with football it’s okay for people to leave, but I will miss him so much,” he added.
Klopp also had kind words for Crystal Palace coach Roy Hodgson as the latter pulled back the curtain on his long, accomplished career on the bench. “Roy is also a legend, very influential and important to football. He traveled the world managing, saw early on how defense really has to work, and he has maintained that throughout his career, exceptional “said Klopp.
Virgil van Dijk, Joel Matip and Joe Gomez were all excluded from the 2020-21 season and Liverpool were unlikely to secure a Champions League berth. But the Reds responded with eight wins and two draws in their last 10 league games to change their fortunes. (ANI)
