Klopp not happy, but sat­is­fied with draw

New Straits Times - - Sport -

LON­DON: Liver­pool man­ager Jur­gen Klopp said that the “lit­tle dis­ap­point­ment” he felt af­ter los­ing a lead in Sun­day’s 1-1 Premier League draw at Manch­ester City will have given way to sat­is­fac­tion with a point by yes­ter­day.

In a game of many chances and a num­ber of con­tro­ver­sies over penalty de­ci­sions, ei­ther side could eas­ily have won, as Klopp agreed.

“Maybe it’s OK, but I’m not happy in this mo­ment,” he told Sky Sports.

“Give me a few hours and then I’m happy. To get a point at Manch­ester City for (any) team in the world is ab­so­lutely OK.

“There were a few sit­u­a­tions where we couldn’t de­fend their qual­ity. We could have won this game, be­cause we forced the goal­keeper into a few out­stand­ing saves.

“We had three or four open goals in the six yard box. They had their mo­ments too.”

The re­sult left Liver­pool in fourth place, 13 points be­hind lead­ers Chelsea and a point adrift of third-placed City.

Klopp agreed with the gen­eral view that it was a fine match in dif­fi­cult wet con­di­tions.

“A lot of good foot­ball from two highly mo­ti­vated sides, both wanted to win un­til the last sec­onds,” he added. Reuters
