Klopp bamboozles his play­ers

The Herald (Zimbabwe) - - Sport -

SOUTHAMP­TON. - Liver­pool man­ager Jur­gen Klopp ad­mit­ted he may have bam­boo­zled his play­ers by jot­ting down a change of tac­tics on a scrap of pa­per dur­ing his team’s 1-0 de­feat to Southamp­ton in the League Cup soc­cer semi-fi­nal first leg on Wed­nes­day night.

Striker Daniel Stur­ridge ap­peared non­plussed when passed the de­tails on the note in the sec­ond half at St Mary’s, with other Liver­pool play- ers also be­mused by Klopp’s switch.

For­mer Borus­sia Dort­mund man­ager Klopp re­vealed he had al­tered Liver­pool’s tac­tics to 3-5-2, and ad­mit­ted fail­ing to get the mes­sage across to his play­ers quickly enough.

“It was just a new sys­tem, how­ever you want to call it, 3-5-2,” said Klopp. “Two wingers, two strik­ers, that’s all. No more in­for­ma­tion, but it was enough. - AFP
