Klopp bamboozles his players
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
