Jurgen Klopp’s reaction to Man City punch that silenced the Liverpool dressing room

Jurgen Klopp gave every Liverpool player a chance to iron out any problems they were having after watching Manchester City spectacularly beat Leicester to clinch the Premier League title in 2019.

The Reds and City were locked in a fierce race for the trophy, with the fight lasting until the final day. In City’s penultimate game, they hosted the Foxes on a Monday night knowing they had to win if they were to avoid Liverpool and return to the top.

Leicester held on long and posed a threat at the break, but an eternity goal from over 25 yards out by Vincent Kompany with 20 minutes to go delighted the Etihad and eventually won the game. The success proved crucial and will have had a draining effect on Liverpool, but Klopp quickly put it to bed. Speaking on the fourth episode of JURGEN, a docuseries backed by ERDINGER from The Anfield Wrap, James Milner said: “They had City the night before, it looks like they’re fighting, then Vinny cuts one in the top corner. I’ve seen this shot go over the City training ground fence into a field 50 times and unfortunately for us it was just one of them.


“You come in the next day and the manager says, ‘Okay, does anyone have anything to say about last night? No, okay, let’s go…’ And he was like, ‘For most teams that would be impossible, the only reason we have a chance is because you are. .’

Klopp’s heartfelt comments came as Liverpool prepared to face Barcelona, ​​where they trailed 3-0, in the second leg of the Champions League semi-final. However, on a sensational night at Anfield, the Reds overcame all odds to claim a 4-0 win before securing the final.

Six days after City’s late victory over Leicester, they clinched the title at Brighton, becoming the first team in a decade to retain their crown. Pep Guardiola’s side won 4-1 at the Amex despite falling behind, with Kompany’s winner against the Foxes proving decisive.

The Belgian, who was due to leave just weeks after his iconic moment, told Sky Sports of the strike: “I wish, I believe. It’s like you said, I didn’t score a goal this season but I always feel like in big moments like that, ‘I’m going to do something, I don’t know if it’s going to be a header or what it’s going to be.

“Anything. There was a bit of frustration today because everyone was saying, “Don’t shoot, don’t shoot!” – I could really hear it. c It annoyed me and I said, ‘Wait a minute’ – I’ve never been so far in my career that young players tell me if I can make a shot or not. So I just took it! All I can say is that I scored goals like that in training.”
