Juergen Klopp quotes

Nov 20 2017

No, it does not. We showed already a fantastic mentality, Dortmund [4-3 in April 2016] being the obvious one, and we showed it in a lot of games. Yes it was not perfect tonight but it's not a general problem. It just happened. In this atmosphere, we need to get more and more experience. Could we have done better? 100%. Do I think it's a mentality problem? 100% not. It was misjudgment, we wanted to play like we played the first half and control the game but then we became a little bit passive. It's football and until the final whistle everything is possible. I knew that before.feedback

Nov 20 2017

The description of the game is easy. Fantastic first half for us, the second half we made a mistake – we didn't carry on playing football. It's normal to try to control the game but a team like us has to control the game with the ball.feedback

Nov 20 2017

If Liverpool don't want me anymore, I have to start thinking new. But in this moment I'm really happy and I don't think about any clubs.feedback

Nov 20 2017

We're not here to enjoy the atmosphere. We're here to get a result. It's not an excuse that we're not at home.feedback

Nov 20 2017

In Spain, you're used to a lot of media, a lot of different things. But we are completely cool. Phil is 100 per cent at Liverpool. When the market closes, we're all professionals and we do our job again.feedback

Nov 20 2017

He is really knocking on the door and it's fantastic that he is back. It's great.feedback

Nov 20 2017

He is good. I think there will be a big chance he will be ready for Saturday, but there was no chance for this game - it was a little bit too quick, but it's all good.feedback

Nov 20 2017

Maybe it was one reason he came back, but he's not like 'now I will show you the real Mo Salah.feedback

Nov 20 2017

A little bit less muscle, a little bit less physical, and you fly through the Premier League – not like he's flying now – but one body check, you understand. With his body shape that's now different.feedback

Nov 20 2017

He's a man now, he was a kid at Chelsea, now he's a man. That's good.feedback

Nov 20 2017

He was a kid when he came to Chelsea, and we have heard a few times that's quite difficult, and in that time they were really successful. It was quite difficult to come through.feedback

Nov 20 2017

He's completely relaxed. For sure he wanted to show a little bit he's better than that, but everyone knew it already.feedback

Nov 20 2017

If you see Roberto [Firmino] working unbelievably hard, he's not scoring in the moment. Sadio [Mane] doesn't score in the moment. But they work and they will have their moments and then we will talk about them. There's the guys on the bench who will have their moments.feedback

Nov 20 2017

This is the Mo Salah period – no problem with that, well deserved. But he's also very important even when he's not scoring because he stretches the formation.feedback

Nov 20 2017

The speed of the boys means the last line drops – there can be no other reaction. And then we have the space to play. The speed players aren't only for counter-attacking. Sometimes that's not possible. It's about stretching formation and creating space for the rest.feedback

Nov 19 2017

We watched Salah so often, saw him so often. The scouting department was really behind me, and wanted to do it even earlier so that nobody could jump in!feedback

Nov 18 2017

Today's performance looked much more mature and that's very important for us. We could have scored more often but it was a perfect day for us.feedback

Nov 18 2017

At 2.30am this morning, his wonderful girlfriend gave birth - Alberto Moreno Jr was born in Liverpool. He was in the [team] hotel when he was born... sorry to his girlfriend! It was a difficult game, Southampton are a really good football side. It was an open game, we had more chances before we scored. We have to build on our experiences. So far in this season, we've had pretty much everything – we've played all kind of teams and all kind of styles and there was only one game that was really bad, which was Tottenham.feedback

Nov 18 2017

You saw in those 15 minutes [against Brazil] that he got involved immediately. He could have scored. He is completely calm with the situation. He has played one game from the beginning, okay we lost [against Leicester in the League Cup] but he did really well.feedback

Nov 18 2017

He is completely calm with the situation. He has played one game from the beginning, okay we lost [against Leicester in the League Cup] but he did really well.feedback

Nov 18 2017

It was 100 per cent right. It was a situation where a few players were missing but he will be a future player for England, I am 100% convinced of that.feedback

Nov 18 2017

You saw in those 15 minutes [against Brazil] that he got involved immediately. He could have scored. He is really involved, an important member of the squad. That's what he wanted. He wants to be closer. All the rest he has to do by himself. Sometimes you need a little bit of luck to be playing and scoring.feedback

Nov 18 2017

He is completely calm with the situation. He has played one game from the beginning, okay we lost [against Leicester in the League Cup] but he did really well. He is really involved, an important member of the squad. That's what he wanted. He wants to be closer. All the rest he has to do by himself. Sometimes you need a little bit of luck to be playing and scoring.feedback

Nov 18 2017

He has got everything you will need. Okay, in this moment it's really early. He has had a number of games for us but not always many minutes.feedback

Nov 18 2017

He doesn't feel like 'roll out the red carpet'. He is a smart lad, very football smart and that makes him easy to work with.feedback

Nov 18 2017

It hasn't happened too often but he's this close and I am really happy to have him here. He is doing so well and he will not be disappointed if he doesn't start at the weekend.feedback

Nov 18 2017

I am happy for him. Next time if he is involved it will be no problem. Boys like him, Joe [Gomez], [Tammy] Abraham, [Ruben] Loftus-Cheek, they are the future for England. It is cool. Dom has quality and that's good.feedback

Nov 17 2017

You really expect an answer? What happened in the summer? I have nothing to say about that.feedback

Nov 16 2017

It was 100% the right decision. It was a situation where a few players were missing but he will be a future player for England. He has got everything you need. You saw in 15 minutes that he got involved immediately. That is him. Next time he is involved it will be no problem. Players like him, Joe, Tammy Abraham and Ruben Loftus-Cheek are the future for England. It is cool. If they want to be involved a little earlier or a little later, no problem. He has quality and that is good.feedback

Nov 16 2017

Everyone will be required, 100%. If the players don't know that I need them all in this period then I cannot help them. That is how it is. We need them and we need them in the best, best, best shape. We have only important games. Southampton is unbelievably important. Sevilla next week? Unbelievable. Chelsea next Saturday? Wow. It goes bam-bam-bam but I am looking forward to it. It is really good. Hopefully we can keep this group healthy, fit and full of desire.feedback

Nov 14 2017

If I have an injury or we have disappointment with a result, the only thing in my head is about the reaction. You cannot change what has happened, so you have you accept it but you can control what comes next and for me, the only option is to be better, stronger and with an even bigger desire for success.feedback

Nov 14 2017

Mo is a great lad and an incredible player. It is good that he has settled in so easily and there is so much more still to come from him. We get on well and I enjoy playing with him, but that's the same with everyone. We have a very exciting team and we all want to help the club be successful.feedback

Nov 14 2017

For me it felt like a cardiac infarction. I couldn't say anything or go out with my wife.feedback

Nov 13 2017

First and foremost, I have to say big congratulations to Senegal on the achievement of qualifying for the World Cup. This is fantastic news for their country and the players, Sadio included. Aliou Cisse and his guys have done a fantastic job there and you can see them making a real impact in Russia come next summer. Personally speaking, I'm delighted for Sadio. Everyone in Liverpool knows his ability and the best players should be on the best stage – Sadio will now have this wonderful chance.feedback

Nov 13 2017

There has been really strong communication between ourselves and the Senegal team management to ensure the player is properly protected and looked after. We respect how important he is for Senegal and therefore it must always be the case that they get to make the decision when he is under their care.feedback

Nov 13 2017

It should not be forgotten in Liverpool, either, how important it is to Sadio that he represents his country whenever he is fit enough to do so. He is so proud of his country and recognises what a role model he is for them.feedback

Nov 13 2017

At this stage, we haven't seen Sadio yet to properly assess the extent, but what is clear is that we will have to stay on top of this for the rest of the week and make sure we are careful in how we look after him.feedback

Nov 12 2017

The team was happy when he was back. We are not non-league football. There are offers for different players and that's how it is - sometimes people think about it sometimes not. He is here with 100 per cent and that's really good.feedback

Nov 09 2017

I keep in contact with a lot of my Dortmund players.feedback

Nov 09 2017

They were young when I coached them, so I was like a father to them. When I left Dortmund, it's not so important what people think when you come, it's more important what they think when you leave.feedback

Nov 09 2017

It didn't feel right. When Liverpool called, I can't explain it. It was right.feedback

Nov 07 2017

When you have 20 players on the table, different players, it's difficult to make an early decision, but we all were convinced about it so could make the early decision so we could really get him.feedback

Nov 07 2017

That would be nice if we talk after the season about different numbers - and both numbers should be much higher.feedback

Nov 07 2017

He's a fantastic person, a nice lad and a really good football player.feedback

Nov 07 2017

I didn't think if he can score 12 goals or whatever in 17 games [but] I hope he's not finished now.feedback

Nov 05 2017

He's an offensive midfield player who is more a striker, that's true, and he needed to adapt a little bit to the different style.feedback

Nov 05 2017

He played very often as a second striker at Roma with [Edin] Dzeko. Today he had the position, obviously he likes it. We will see what we make of it.feedback

Nov 05 2017

That's why we decided we should try it. I asked him because I could not see how he felt after that session.feedback

Nov 05 2017

When we trained after the Maribor game - his first session on Thursday, [he] was a little bit stiff in the beginning but then you can see he starts enjoying the intensity.feedback

Nov 05 2017

I said in the press conference [on Friday] he is ready for 25 minutes, but obviously he was ready for 25 minutes plus. That's good for us.feedback

Nov 05 2017

We changed the system. The 4-4-2, which looked from the beginning a very offensive line-up, we had a different idea, we wanted to defend deeper, more compact.feedback

Nov 04 2017

The result, it feels good. We changed our approach, it was a counter-attacking line-up to use our speed from a deep situation.feedback

Nov 04 2017

This week is a fantastic week. Two weeks ago at Wembley, I felt quite different but we responded to that really well.feedback

Nov 04 2017

He has to go there, then he has a few days' training and if they can get the points they need [in the first game] then maybe we can talk again and ask them is it necessary [for him] to play the second game so he could come back. That would be the ideal situation but we cannot decide it; FIFA does not give the clubs the opportunity to decide when players play for their countries. They are clear rules and we respect them.feedback

Nov 04 2017

In this specific case, it is good for his rhythm. I have no problem with our players playing for their national teams, it's only that we need to know as much as possible about the circumstances, what they do in training and stuff like this. That's really important for us.feedback

Nov 04 2017

The games are always on different pitches, different surfaces, but the intensities are similar – but the training is different and that's what I would love to have more influence on in the future. Not to tell them how to train, only to know about and react about. In Europe that is easier to be honest, but that's how it is and it is no problem again.feedback

Nov 04 2017

We will get into contact with Senegal FA and they have two games to play. Sadio is not injured anymore. Is he 100 per cent fit? That's different, but he is on a good way and yesterday he looked really good. We will have to see what we do. If you see Sadio training, you are like, OK…maybe we can use him!' and maybe that's the same for Senegal.feedback

Nov 04 2017

The injury risk is always there, even in training we cannot avoid that. I have no problem with him going to Senegal, but maybe we can talk again.feedback

Nov 04 2017

If Sadio can play I really think he should because it is good to get some rhythm, otherwise he would not have played for I don't know how many weeks with the red card and then the injury. Then we play Southampton so it would be nice if he is in a kind of a rhythm.feedback

Nov 03 2017

I'm happy we have this record at home [the Reds are unbeaten at Anfield this term] but, of course, if you want to be successful you can't fly or drive to other stadiums and leave points there.feedback

Nov 03 2017

But Joe deserved it. He's a wonderful young player who has made big steps in the last few weeks.feedback

Nov 03 2017

We need to take three points from other stadium as often as possible.feedback

Nov 03 2017

We have to accept even an ending contract. There are two sides who could have done different. One is the club, the other is the player. It is a normal situation.feedback

Nov 03 2017

Phil is not available. With the rest, it will be close. Gini I'm not sure, we have to see. It's painful what he has but maybe he can cope with it. We will have to see.feedback

Nov 03 2017

Dejan, yes, maybe today is the clearing session and we know that in weeks like this you have to wait until the last second to make the squad or the line-up.feedback

Nov 02 2017

After the international break, I think Adam [Lallana] and Sadio are back. It will be close, so hopefully they can train during the international break and be part of the normal training.feedback

Nov 02 2017

I would say it will be really close with Dejan. I don't think Phil is able to play, but with Dejan we have to see.feedback

Nov 01 2017

Nobody spoke to me so far [about it]. At half-time I asked immediately and the ankle was already swollen. It's probably not a good sign. We saw a kick in the game and didn't think it was too serious. Then it was swollen. We're not sure if he twisted it or not. For sure, we have to make a scan. It is different with Dejan. It's not the same problem Phil has and he is not out for that long a time, but Gini is out so maybe there will be a wonder or something like this and Phil is in. I know these boys usually do it from 12 yards but we will find a solution.feedback

Nov 01 2017

It was a good penalty and a fantastic save. We have to think about it.feedback

Nov 01 2017

But I don't think in the moment that he can play.feedback

Nov 01 2017

Who even decides the positions? If you are a left back, maybe you started as a left-winger. A central defender might have started as a No. 6.feedback

Nov 01 2017

We play sometimes with wingers, but really only when we defend. It is quite fluid. I am not interested in positions: only when we are defending, and in terms of the distances between players.feedback

Oct 31 2017

It looks good. Sadio had this morning a clearing session before he returns to training. Now he's not in the squad so [Wednesday] is a down day, then on Thursday he should be in training.feedback

Oct 31 2017

We have to see. We have a [training] session at 5pm and we will see who will be involved. I hope for both.feedback

Oct 31 2017

I have had too many football games in my life to feel relaxed before a game like this. If we win it 1-0, I'm fine. We want three points, a clean sheet and a better position.feedback

Oct 31 2017

If they will not train, especially in Dejan's case, that does not mean he cannot play. In Dejan's case if he could train tonight [Tuesday] and tomorrow, that would be enough.feedback

Oct 31 2017

I am not 100 per cent sure. They are both much better but whether they will be ready, I don't know at this moment. We have to see. We have a [training] session at 5pm and we will see who will be involved. I hope for both.feedback

Oct 31 2017

We have a few little things, Alberto [Moreno] had a cramp, Joe [Gomez] felt [something] a little bit. So we were really careful in the last few days.feedback

Oct 31 2017

If a player is playing, then he must be at 100 per cent. I will speak to the medical department. I don't think about rotation, I think about a 100 per cent spot-on team.feedback

Oct 31 2017

I thought it made sense after the Egypt penalty - obviously the pressure is bigger in Liverpool than in Egypt to qualify for the World Cup! I'm not sure that he is anymore… I think Daniel would have been a safe number in this group of players.feedback

Oct 31 2017

I don't wish one of you to have your mistakes discussed in public. You cannot even imagine how it feels. The boys are in the first place still human beings but you look like you are watching an accident and you are the kind of people standing around with smartphones instead of helping. I'm not this kind of person.feedback

Oct 31 2017

We had a normal week. Of course it's not the nicest week in Dejan's life but it's only football. People don't become a better or a worse person through making a mistake in a football game. If I think about Dejan, I have much more positive things than negative things.feedback

Oct 30 2017

The atmosphere was obviously not too optimistic at half-time so to come out and do what we did was really nice.feedback

Oct 30 2017

It was clear after the really harsh criticism after the last game that you can't go like this (clicks fingers) and say 'it was not that bad'. It was bad. It was very important that we reacted.feedback

Oct 28 2017

We had not the best week as you can imagine - it's not that we don't take the situation really seriously, it's really important for us. Tottenham was the worst game we've played in this season so far and you cannot ignore it, but you have to work with it and that's what we did.feedback

Oct 28 2017

We had more chances, but it's a big relief to be honest because the pressure was there. There is no doubt about that. I could hear that people didn't like the first half too much, I know it's hard work but in the end probably nobody remembers the first half because the second half was really much better.feedback

Oct 28 2017

That's how it looked a little bit in the first half, so it was not too difficult to fix at half-time. You could see immediately in the second half really, we had more players between the decisive lines and so it was more difficult for Huddersfield to defend.feedback

Oct 28 2017

If something doesn't work you can change everything or you can stick to what you did before.feedback

Oct 28 2017

I was convinced before the Tottenham game that these boys are the right ones and I will not change after one very bad performance, so I am not that confused. Then we had to change [because of Lovren's injury] and you could see Raggy needed a little bit to find in the game; it was very difficult for him, two minutes before we went in with the squad [he needed to play] and it was not a real warm-up for him as a sub, they are not in the mood to start in the next second. In the first half, he struggled a little bit but in the second half he was really good. Good news for us.feedback

Oct 27 2017

Could Simon have done better for the fourth goal. Dejan? First goal, that was 100 per cent collective, second goal it is difficult to defend him. But in the same situation, 99 times out of 100, he will do it.feedback

Oct 27 2017

We watched all of the [potential signings] 500 million times. It's not that we ignore it. I said if there would have been a solution out there we would have done it. I had to make a decision and the decision was our boys are not worse than them.feedback

Oct 27 2017

It's up to you what you make of stories like this – if you celebrate yourself and are happy with having stories like this or if you cool down because the world of social media is difficult enough to handle. That's why I am not on it, I have no idea why people are doing it to be honest. Everything is okay, Dejan had a good training week, we will see what we will do for the game. It's not about the last game in general, it's about the next one. For Huddersfield, we will go for what we think will be the best line-up.feedback

Oct 27 2017

Adam was this week, for the first time, part of the warming up. His face showed how happy he was about this.feedback

Oct 27 2017

I saw in the last hour them both with the fitness coaches on the pitch doing technical things and stuff like this, so it all looks good.feedback

Oct 27 2017

In the end, they all need to be at 100 percent and they aren't at the moment, so that's it – but they're on a good way.feedback

Oct 27 2017

I know him well enough to know he thinks exactly the same. Nothing we say in the game will rest a second longer in our mind after the final whistle.feedback

Oct 27 2017

We need to be confident again, we need to be brave. Huddersfield defend well, good counter-attacking team – enjoying the Premier League.feedback

Oct 27 2017

Against United they parked the bus and won the game. They will probably try to play the same way here.feedback

Oct 27 2017

We'll make the decision after training on Friday. He missed training yesterday, but that's all at the moment.feedback

Oct 27 2017

But I want to win this game and that means we have to beat Huddersfield, that's that.feedback

Oct 27 2017

We take this really seriously. We have to defend better.feedback

Oct 26 2017

It was never discussed. Not even a sentence.feedback

Oct 26 2017

In the moment when you are not feeling confident, you cannot change too many things - that's insecurity.feedback

Oct 26 2017

In all the decisive moments we were not there. It's difficult to talk about because I don't want to create headlines, which don't help us, but today it was just poor defending in all parts.feedback

Oct 25 2017 - Champions League

I like that he is prepared to be patient. He has already had some big playing moments, for Liverpool and of course Wales. But when we ask him to go to the Academy and do things like play for Stevie's [Gerrard] U19s in the UEFA Youth League, on nights we play Champions League football, he approaches it so well.feedback

Oct 25 2017 - World Cup

This is brilliant news, although without sounding complacent about it, it is absolutely not a surprise. Ben knows how committed we are to him and he and his family know this is the best environment for him to grow, learn more and become even better and better.feedback

Oct 25 2017

Ben is that perfect balance of talent and attitude. One of either is OK – to fulfil your potential at the very highest level you need to have the maximum of both.feedback

Oct 22 2017

We don't have to talk about top four. We are where we are, we deserve that. If Tottenham needed to be geniuses to come through us then there is no debate. Dejan was no worse than anyone else. We had to change something, make things more stable.feedback

Oct 22 2017

You cannot get results with a performance like this against Tottenham. I don't want to say anything positive about us. Whatever you say today about us in a negative [light] is right, we were wrong. Dejan was no worse than anyone else. We had to change something, make things more stable.feedback

Oct 22 2017

But when you make the mistakes we did we have to work on that, it was too easy for Tottenham, much too easy.feedback

Oct 22 2017

I have not spoken to him yet. I could've taken another one off and it wouldn't have made a difference, we still conceded two goals.feedback

Oct 22 2017

We have to prove we are better defenders than this.feedback

Oct 22 2017

Everything that happened today was so obvious. It was bad in these moments.feedback

Oct 22 2017

You cannot get results with a performance like today against a team like Tottenham, they were completely spot-on and obviously we weren't. And that's my responsibility.feedback

Oct 22 2017

Third goal, another present, we have the ball and lose it. We make the header in the middle of the park and have nobody there for the second ball. The fourth goal? It was like this today.feedback

Oct 22 2017

I can't believe we have a worse statistic since 1964. If Tottenham needed to be genius to come through we do not have to talk but if you make these mistakes it is much too easy.feedback

Oct 22 2017

It is all our responsibility, what you saw today. It's not a nice statistic. In all the decisive moments we were not there. It's difficult to talk about because I don't want to create headlines, which don't help us, but today it was just poor defending in all parts and the decisive parts it was like this.feedback

Oct 22 2017

If I am involved in this situation on the pitch, then Harry [Kane] cannot get the ball.feedback

Oct 22 2017

If I was on the pitch in trainers their first goal wouldn't have happened.feedback

Oct 22 2017

In all the decisive moments, we were not there. It was poor defending in all parts. I don't want to say anything positive about us today. Whatever you say today about us in a negative way, you are right, we are wrong.feedback

Oct 22 2017

We are not a team that can play with a striker who scores a goal but is not involved in the game for the other 89 minutes. We need the striker for the other options, too - to work for the other minutes.feedback

Oct 22 2017

If I am involved in this situation on the pitch, then Harry cannot get the ball. It wouldn't happen if I was on the pitch – but I am in the middle of the technical area in trainers. Each job is clear but we couldn't do it.feedback

Oct 21 2017

Do I think it is too cool that we didn't fix it so far? No, to be honest.feedback

Oct 21 2017

We have other moments when we have to talk about these things but not in October.feedback

Oct 21 2017

I've no clue. We will see. We don't talk about things like this. Can you imagine what it would be like if I said 'yes we have an agreement'?feedback

Oct 21 2017

In this moment, the 100 per cent truth is that nobody thinks about this. We don't talk about it, why should we.feedback

Oct 20 2017

We are still in the race, not with City in the moment because they have, I don't how many points. We have all the other things. I don't say already we should only fight for top four. Performance-wise we are a team that should be there, but now we have to get the results. That could be good news if you are happy with it but if the only thing you can be happy about is being first in the table then it is again like it was a few years ago.feedback

Oct 20 2017

We can make steps. From a very good season last year we can make steps this year. Position-wise I think it should be possible, but difficult with the few points we have given away. It is a long season, if we can bring in consistency and be more ruthless and more clinical in situations we can win games, I would say a lot. In the end we will see where it leads us but again it could be a good basis to build on for the next year. That's how it is. It will not stop if we stay cool.feedback

Oct 20 2017

We have a challenge when we go there, they know it will not be an easy game so let's play and see what happens.feedback

Oct 20 2017

It's always against City like this and against Tottenham it is like this and that's it pretty much.feedback

Oct 20 2017

That's a nice football game. It's a game I think the supporters can look forward to. Both teams don't hesitate with any effort, any investment, stuff like this. Both teams are always spot on and want to do the best. I'm really looking forward to this game, you don't have a lot of these games where both teams are going for everything. Everyone knows that and Dele Alli as well and [Christian] Eriksen as well, not strikers but midfielders - they're in good moment as a club.feedback

Oct 20 2017

So far Tottenham did better than we did results-wise but I'm sure they can play better than they played so far. We can play better than we played so far, so it's a really interesting game. So far we did well but that's all, nothing else.feedback

Oct 20 2017

Apart from [Kyle] Walker this year, nobody left. That's a big job they did so far and will be a big challenge for them in the next few years because Harry is not only one of the best strikers in Europe, he's one of the best strikers in the world 100 per cent.feedback

Oct 20 2017

They have very important games don't they, so that's to be qualified for the World Cup I imagine they feel the pressure a little bit, we cannot change the situation.feedback

Oct 20 2017 - Christmas

If Sadio is fit, we cannot hide it, why would we? If he is fit we can do nothing to keep him here and he will go with Senegal.feedback

Oct 20 2017

It would be fantastic for us, of course. Everybody knows what kind of a quality player he is.feedback

Oct 20 2017 - London

It is still difficult and we will do everything we can from the club side. If we can bring our fans at least back from London, which could obviously be a little difficult. But it is a very good sign and I love these signs because, I have said a few times, we respect all of the contracts the club has signed but it is still the players who decide how nice the product, the things, the game is. And if they can never rest, then it is a problem.feedback

Oct 20 2017 - Christmas

He is a fantastic boy and always it helps if you settle as a person very quickly. It helps you settle in as a player. And I don't think he needed even half an hour to settle in the team. If he can stay fit that will be very important for us. Egpyt have qualified but I do not think they give him a lot of rest. He is their man in Egpyt, like Sadio in Senegal, so I am always a little bit afraid when they are away on different pitches, long travels and stuff like this. But so far it has gone and well, and hopefully it stays like this.feedback

Oct 20 2017 - Christmas

To be honest I don't know when it last happened, that somebody could take something but did not take it, because of common sense. I don't know. So, Sky, thank you. Usually [it is] 'I can get it, so I take it' and that is how it is, and that is how the world looks a little bit in this moment. I thought it was a very, very good decision – especially for the fans because that is number one.feedback

Oct 18 2017

I think the boys deserve it. They really kept going and it's just good to work together.feedback

Oct 18 2017

But no problem, we have four or five days to recover and prepare for the game, so that's good and we are already looking forward to it.feedback

Oct 17 2017

Then, how we finished these situations were also good. A lot in this season already [we have been] too alone in the box to make a cross or a pass, but were no relaxed enough to play the right pass. Tonight it was different. Always when we went let them play, they played immediately and were around our 18-yard box and that only showed how good they could be. But no problem, we have four or five days to recover and prepare for the game, so that's good and we are already looking forward to it.feedback

Oct 17 2017

But we never gave up in this game, especially in the second half. It was good - all-round a really, really good performance otherwise you cannot win 7-0 so we are really happy about that.feedback

Oct 17 2017

We try to use the result now, but the next game is against Tottenham so it's pretty likely it will not be a similar result.feedback

Oct 17 2017

It's a very, very important game so, again, it's always a decision about rhythm and being used to each other or bringing in fresh legs. We have a lot of games but I don't think the intensity of the last game should be a reason for the line-up for this game.feedback

Oct 17 2017

I really loved the performance when he came on. He is a big signing for us, obviously, but a fast player like him needs the circumstances to perform so he needed time.feedback

Oct 17 2017

At the moment it is clear but I know once again it is a long-term thing, it is not fixed for the next five years.feedback

Oct 17 2017

It is not good for him, and it is not good for us, and at the moment when he is training he trains on the wing.feedback

Oct 17 2017

Without training and playing in the middle of the park it doesn't make sense.feedback

Oct 17 2017

They are really able to hurt each team, but we cannot ignore that we are the favourites. We cannot say it's not like this, but it's at their home ground.feedback

Oct 17 2017

They're a good side and so don't think about the name, don't think about the league, don't think about anything else – just respect the opponent.feedback

Oct 17 2017

They fought really hard for this Champions League campaign – it's their ninth Champions League game or something like this for them already. They are very experienced and a really good footballing side – a classical top team of their league. They're usually champions or second fighting with Ljubljana.feedback

Oct 17 2017 - Russia

They are really experienced and confident – they've had one good result, one not so good result against Sevilla, but even in that game they had their moments and against Moscow they could have won.feedback

Oct 17 2017

We know about them and it's not a big difference to other preparations.feedback

Oct 16 2017 - Egypt

If we get the penalty, and I know we'd still have to score, but Mo Salah was still on the pitch and he scored the most difficult penalty in the world for Egypt last week, then it's 1-0.feedback

Oct 15 2017 - Manchester United

We have to do whatever is necessary and we will be challengers. We will be challengers for the next few years no problem. We showed big heart, we were brave, I thought we were smart in doing the right thing at the right moment, but in the end it didn't work out.feedback

Oct 15 2017 - Manchester United

We take it like it is. If you really want to know who we are, watch the full 90 minutes of our last few games and tell me we were not good.feedback

Oct 14 2017 - Russia

I'm sure they can make the qualification without him, they need only one point from two games, so that should be possible. That's how it is. We watch it, we wait until they come back, and we take what we get.feedback

Oct 14 2017 - Russia

[He is] the best player of Senegal, no doubt, so the players have no chance to get away from the [pressure]. They have to be always there and spot on.feedback

Oct 14 2017 - Russia

In this moment Sadio got an injury and that could mean he's not involved in the game when Senegal [play South Africa].feedback

Oct 14 2017 - Manchester United

For sure you could not play this way at Liverpool, but it's OK for Manchester United.feedback

Oct 14 2017

We need to continue working really hard and at one point it will happen for us. We need a little bit of luck.feedback

Oct 14 2017

There were a lot of brilliant individual performances for us in a very difficult game.feedback

Oct 14 2017 - Manchester United

So far we've only lost one Premier League game. Everyone can see we're not far off Manchester United. I thought the boys did well.feedback

Oct 14 2017 - Manchester United

For sure you could not play this way at Liverpool, but it's OK for Manchester United. Manchester United came here for a point and got it. We wanted three points and didn't get it. We have to think about our performance and our situation after this game it's not worse. We wanted to win, everyone could see that.feedback

Oct 14 2017

They are convinced about what they are doing; sometimes a little bit deeper, sometimes a little bit higher. They don't need 80 per cent of the ball to feel dominant in the game, so you need a formation in which everybody knows what the other player is doing in each situation.feedback

Oct 14 2017

These boys are used to each other and they know about [each other's] ways, so I think it makes sense against United that we do not make a lot of experiments because they are quite cool in their approach.feedback

Oct 14 2017

Other managers have different ways to do it. Other clubs have different ways to do it. We have our way. I don't think I'm the perfect manager. I only think I'm the perfect fit for this club and I feel already much more responsible than maybe I should.feedback

Oct 14 2017

If your neighbour has a better situation – he's got one more car, he gets to go on one extra holiday – does it mean you can't enjoy your own situation? It's about us being happy, not others. Can we dominate them for the next 20 years without spending the same amount of money? Probably not.feedback

Oct 14 2017

Thank God that we can play football without Sadio because already we had to do this a lot of times, much more often than we wanted. It's not only Sadio it's [Marouane] Fellaini, it's a lot of other players. We can play without him even if we would love to have him in the line-up. That's how it is.feedback

Oct 14 2017

In the moment when I think we cannot be successful – and there is only consolation – I go. Why should I be here as some kind of caretaker until the world creates a manager who can be more successful? That makes no sense. I am really convinced.feedback

Oct 13 2017 - Egypt

Then, after 87 minutes they made the equaliser, obviously not a nice moment. Then, 94 minutes, I never saw a celebration of a penalty like this until someone said, by the way, we still have to score.feedback

Oct 13 2017 - Egypt

I never saw a celebration like this for 1-0 after 60 minutes - I thought it was a Golden Goal in a World Cup final.feedback

Oct 13 2017 - Egypt

That's a really good generation that they have there and they should go to the World Cup but, how it always is, first you have to be qualified. Now they are there it's obviously a good moment.feedback

Oct 13 2017 - Egypt

That pressure was unbelievable, he did really well, and after 27 years it's fantastic news for Egypt.feedback

Oct 13 2017 - Egypt

I nearly had a heart attack, I thought I had to go down there and take the situation. But he did it and I would say in this moment he is our No.1 penalty taker.feedback

Oct 13 2017 - Manchester United

We are not so weak that we have to think we don't have a chance against Manchester United. It's Anfield, it's our stadium, it's the first game with the Kenny Dalglish Stand.feedback

Oct 13 2017 - Manchester United

We are really looking forward to it. It's one of the most special games in world football. If you are not involved, you would watch it 100 per cent. We know this and we respect this. We want to perform and we want to get a result.feedback

Oct 13 2017

I still think that as long as 98 per cent of Liverpudlians think we are the right way, we will succeed. It's difficult. The good old times, when one team dominated the league for 20 years, will not come back.feedback

Oct 13 2017

If I was to come in today as a new manager - this would be the situation - and everyone would give me time now to do the next step, that would be perfect. Unfortunately, if they sack me now, I don't think there are a lot of managers who would do the job better than I do. I don't think I'm perfect, but it's quite difficult to find better options.feedback

Oct 13 2017

Things like this happen. If you look around the world, a lot of players in this international break got injured. It's always like this; one injured player, two injured players… you always have to [have players come in]. We have now three long-term injuries with Clyney and Adam, and now since a few days ago Sadio is out. In the moment, we are still in a quite comfortable situation because we have different options and that's good. That's what we wanted to have before the season – now we have it and now we have to use it.feedback

Oct 13 2017

Of course, they are all quality players, but it is not about talking about them; it's all about really building a really strong side, a real strong line-up for the next game.feedback

Oct 13 2017 - Manchester United

No one will show this game in 10 or 20 years.feedback

Oct 13 2017

Can we dominate them for the next 20 years without spending the same amount of money? Probably not. But can we still be there? Yes, of course we can and we want to force this.feedback

Oct 13 2017

If they [Fenway Sports Group, Liverpool's owner] sacked me now, there would not be a lot of managers who would do the job better than I do. I don't think I am perfect but, as long as 98% of Liverpudlians are behind us, then we are on the right way and we will succeed.feedback

Oct 13 2017

At Newcastle I was close [to losing it after the 1-1 draw]. It was too much for me for a second. It felt unfair after the game. We were the better side, we had more chances. They had one chance and scored. A journalist asked me: 'Do you think it's a fair result?' I said 'What do you think?' When he said 'Yes', I was close to saying, Come on, get up!' As a human being I'm not proud of this. When I went out, I thought, Come on, go back, shake hands. It's not his fault ...' But it's how the world is. They aren't interested. It's about results. Deliver: we know that.feedback

Oct 13 2017

We want a situation to create confidence. Against City we were the better team before we had 10 men and then they scored five and something like 40 goals in the next two weeks. We took the knock and thought, Shit, we conceded five,' but it was not that bad. We were the better side in all the games after that and did not win, except at Leicester. The big challenge is stay confident and play football. I am ready for this and the boys are ready for this.feedback

Oct 12 2017

There's a reason why the world's best chess players come from Armenia like Mkhitaryan. Yes, other countries product chess players, but Armenia produces far more than could reasonably expect.feedback

Oct 12 2017

They're thinkers, they're hard workers, they graft. And if things aren't working out, then the problem lies with you somewhere - you start to blame yourself.feedback

Oct 12 2017

When it comes down to it, 99 per cent of people would be happy to have Mkhitaryan's problems. There is no doubt in my mind that he is one of the most talented players in the world. He possesses an incredible combination of speed and technique. There's very, very few you can say that about.feedback

Oct 12 2017

You can forget that this is a player that has very high expectations of himself; that means he might be disappointed in himself even after playing well. Failing is part of football and failing big is part of football.feedback

Oct 02 2017

I know, I'm long enough around football to know that there will be one day when the knot opens and maybe then we'll score times than once, that's pretty likely. We create, we play good, but obviously we don't score in these moments. But there are different ways to get one win in seven.feedback

Oct 02 2017

No! You stick to what you're doing, try, try and try again. Each missed chance is not a failure, it is information – use it and go again.feedback

Oct 02 2017

What we have at the moment is that everybody wants to help where the first ball is.feedback

Oct 02 2017

Players make the right decisions when they have confidence, when they don't have it, then they feel 'next pass needs to be the goal' or 'now we are under pressure and need to force it,'.feedback

Oct 02 2017

It was only one game! Everybody gave points away, even Chelsea – okay, not too often because they were champions at the end, but it happened. It's all about how you handle these situations and it's something we are really working on to be stronger in.feedback

Oct 02 2017

You see this very often – we come too close together where the first ball is, which means when the second ball comes, we don't have a good formation. We really work on this, but I would say around these situations, there's not the same confidence.feedback

Oct 02 2017

I really think it looks like we are not far away from a real challenger. If we do what we are good at then we can score more goals and we will win more games and we don't have to think about other teams and we will close the gap.feedback

Oct 01 2017

The update is that both are doing really well but are not in team training tomorrow. But both are on a really good way. With Clyney it was not too sure for one or two weeks but now he has made real steps and it's really cool.feedback

Oct 01 2017

He has no problems anymore. We just have to wait until the tendon is a tendon again, if you want. You cannot rush this. But so far, no setbacks and everything is fine.feedback

Oct 01 2017

Adam is completely normal, that's how it was from the first day – how we thought it would be. He is now outside running and obviously improves a lot.feedback

Oct 01 2017

I have not seen a drop in confidence from the players. It is our duty to be confident because the boys have the quality.feedback

Oct 01 2017

We should have won. We were the better side and created more chances but you know we have a real problem because we have to play better next game, otherwise we will not get a point.feedback

Sep 30 2017 - Manchester United

Because Morata is now really working and is a perfect fit, because Lukaku is the perfect fit for Manchester United, because Harry Kane is now scoring [for Tottenham], because Lacazette is doing well... we had other things we felt we needed to do first.feedback

Sep 30 2017

That has changed and we've made a big step in this. So far it doesn't lead to the results that we want but in a few moments you cannot create bigger chances. We scored goals from much more difficult situations than the ones we've missed so far.feedback

Sep 29 2017

Not a lot of things in this business can surprise me any more, to be honest. I watched the game against PSG. This is how football is – individual quality can decide games, and that's how it was on Wednesday.feedback

Sep 29 2017

But there are bigger problems in the world at the moment than Bayern Munich sacking Carlo Ancelotti.feedback

Sep 29 2017

Sometimes, however, two sides don't fit together. If Bayern believe they have a better future with another manager, then congratulations. If Carlo wants to carry on, he will find a fantastic club and show what kind of manager he is.feedback

Sep 29 2017

At the end, though, it wasn't one game. It was a development that the Bayern bosses didn't like too much. That's why they made the decision, I think. I've no real clue as to why exactly they did it though.feedback

Sep 29 2017

Carlo is a very, very experienced manager. I'm sure he hasn't lost his football knowledge overnight.feedback

Sep 29 2017

You cannot buy just because you think you will not score enough. We have enough chances and we will score.feedback

Sep 29 2017 - Christmas

I really cannot imagine that anyone wants to watch football on that night. I really think it is no problem for people to be very concentrated on important nights on something other than football.feedback

Sep 27 2017

That is how football is. The only way you can change it is to do it again and do it again.feedback

Sep 27 2017

We are strong enough to qualify. The door is open but we have to walk through. We can see a bit of light. We have to stay cool, work hard and we will be all right.feedback

Sep 27 2017

It is not about the names it is about how we perform.feedback

Sep 27 2017

We are not the most lucky team in world football but we did very well in creating chances against a defensively-oriented team.feedback

Sep 27 2017

There were good saves from both goalkeepers and wrong decisions at the decisive moment.feedback

Sep 27 2017

In some moments we performed very well, in other moments we didn't perform very well. We did not take our chances.feedback

Sep 27 2017

He has speed, he's good in 1v1 situations and all that stuff.feedback

Sep 26 2017

We know now more about two teams in the group and both games we could have, or should have, won but we didn't. In the end that's always our fault, but we will carry on and carry on like this, or even better. I saw a lot of good things tonight, it was not a perfect game, but there were a lot of good things.feedback

Sep 26 2017 - Champions League

We did enough and we had four or five 100 per cent chances and that's then disappointing but it is like it is. In the Champions League in the group stage the only target you have is to go through the group to the next round, and that's still possible for us.feedback

Sep 24 2017

It was exactly how it has been so far in the season. There were very, very good moments and then we make it a little bit exciting.feedback

Sep 24 2017

It's obvious we concede too much. That's really hard for me. Usually I'm a really good defensive coach.feedback

Sep 24 2017

The team can keep the game open as long as we don't close it. 2-0 – go, go, go – 3-0 or whatever, maybe 4-0. We changed the rhythm, let them come in. We opened the game for them and that's not smart. That's what we have to change.feedback

Sep 23 2017

The three points are the proof for the public that we are still here, everything is good. Let's make the next step together.feedback

Sep 23 2017

Pressure when it is the right pressure, it always helps. When it is without sense then it doesn't help – and I'm very good at ignoring it.feedback

Sep 23 2017

But, you can imagine, we want to be successful. We know the quality we have makes us responsible for being successful. I know that.feedback

Sep 23 2017

But I said to the boys before the game that we are not the Harlem Globetrotters. We don't go out and try to play really good football, we are here for results and so we play for results.feedback

Sep 23 2017

We think we did it right that we gave him 45 minutes in midweek so he could get more rhythm and it wouldn't be too intense. It was not too good for the game in midweek to take him off to be honest, but it was perfect for today. He can be happy with his performance and I'm very happy with it.feedback

Sep 23 2017

We play good football in general. We are in a good way. We do a lot of things that you do when you've worked a little bit longer together. Yes, we still have issues. Yes, we lose challenges.feedback

Sep 23 2017

It was not too good for the game in midweek to take him off to be honest, but it was perfect for today. He can be happy with his performance and I'm very happy with it.feedback

Sep 23 2017

He's always getting better because he can train all the time.feedback

Sep 23 2017

He had a whole pre-season, so it is not as if he has had to settle in in a minute, which is what people are now expecting of Ox [Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain].feedback

Sep 23 2017

He has been working with us for many weeks, so it's no problem for him.feedback

Sep 22 2017

What we have at the moment, because of the situation, everybody wants to help where the first ball is. You see this very often, we come too close together in this situation and it means, for the second ball, we don't have a good formation.feedback

Sep 22 2017

It's concentration but it's also a little bit of readiness in these moments, the second ball situation.feedback

Sep 22 2017

We sorted this, somehow, so far. We use the formation much better. But we cannot defend a set-piece with a 50-yard header so there will be an opportunity with the second ball. Fighting for these balls, we need to do differently.feedback

Sep 22 2017

We've spoken about set-pieces since I've been here, more or less. In different moments we conceded goals from the first ball – cross, header; cross, volley.feedback

Sep 22 2017

Hopefully they can be back in training [by Friday], but it's not sure at the moment so we have to wait. Around these situations, there is not the same confidence as there is around, give us the ball. That looks a lot more natural.feedback

Sep 22 2017

We really work on this and we see it [the defensive mistakes] in the game.feedback

Sep 22 2017

We watched all of [their potential targets] 500 million times. They are all good out there but they are not that good that you say, Yes, they help immediately.' I had to make a decision and the decision was our boys are not worse than them.feedback

Sep 22 2017

Each manager in football has another hole to fill, but if you ask me what I would prefer – do you want your team perfect in defending set-pieces but they cannot play football, or would you prefer the other way around? I still would take this one. We are on it, as you can imagine.feedback

Sep 21 2017

We can improve in each part of our game and character is nothing fixed. There's nothing to say you cannot change your mentality; of course you can.feedback

Sep 21 2017

He had a little problem with his calf – it's not an injury but a little problem – and we all have to get used to this and manage this a little bit better.feedback

Sep 21 2017

That's the world of football, it is quite quick with all that stuff. I'm not a aware of it [the criticism] but I can imagine. Ox had a few good really, really good situations and a few unlucky situations. I thought he did well in them moments where you could see he tried to adapt to the style of play and all that stuff. If you take the right information from the things we did so far then it always helps. That's what I try to help the players with – why should I be in doubt that we will already do it better on Saturday?feedback

Sep 21 2017

If you take the right information from the things we did so far then it always helps. That's what I try to help the players with – why should I be in doubt that we will already do it better on Saturday?feedback

Sep 21 2017

The way people are talking it sounds like we are the worst team in the country, at the bottom of the table with nil points, but in fact we have eight, and we are still fluent and creative in attack even if we are not scoring as many goals. Obviously we have some problems, but as long as we are staying in games and showing what we are good at the situation is not quite as serious as is being suggested.feedback

Sep 21 2017

We sometimes put too much into trying to clear the first ball and are not ready for the second.feedback

Sep 21 2017

We have too many players too close together for the first ball so when it comes back we don't have a good formation. We have to keep working at it but I must admit I would rather have a team that can play football but struggles to defend set pieces than the other way around.feedback

Sep 20 2017

But that's football – it's a 90-minute game. It was a second ball after a corner I think, then a throw in. I'm sick of goals like this, to be honest. It's unbelievable.feedback

Sep 20 2017

You need to stay concentrated to the end, they scored too easy. The first goal, we don't push up together, I can't say it one time or a thousand times, or whatever, it's not nice to concede these goals and today it's again because of this.feedback

Sep 20 2017

But we have to play like this, we made seven or eight chances and we still can play football, that's cool, good, good, good, but as long as you concede goals like this it makes life really difficult.feedback

Sep 20 2017

We want to go to the next round. Nobody was interested in who plays the better first half. Everybody was interested in who would go through and we are not the team who's in the next round – and for some good reasons.feedback

Sep 20 2017

Defending is different things. It's common together defending and it's individual defending, it's one-on-one situations, it's two-on-one situations. I don't think teams shoot a lot against us, I know they don't, they have not a lot of finishing situations.feedback

Sep 20 2017

I'm in the boat, it's not that I say 'I told you and you don't know'. I feel really bad in the moment about this, of course it's not about not knowing it's about doing it in that moment – that's hard in the moment, it feels really hard in this moment to go out because of this [and] after that performance in the first half.feedback

Sep 20 2017

We defend really well in a lot of moments – how everyone can imagine, we know how to defend a set-piece, a throw-in, and then you change two or three times and then in the end, obviously it doesn't work.feedback

Sep 20 2017

It doesn't feel too cool but it's the truth that we are still a good football team. I see it but unfortunately it doesn't feel it at the moment because it's a cup competition. I don't think teams shoot a lot against us, I know they don't, they have not a lot of finishing situations.feedback

Sep 19 2017

That we conceded like this, that makes me really, really sick. That's hard. Then the reaction, you saw a young team, we played one-twos on the left wing at 2-0 and then [Leicester] made a counter-attack. These are mistakes I can live with because the two boys [Ben Woodburn and Solanke] together are about 34 [in combined age], so that can happen.feedback

Sep 19 2017

But defending set pieces, it wasn't the first ball [for the first goal] – we had problems with this and now we had it with the second or third even and then the throw in.feedback

Sep 19 2017

So, hide them as long as it makes sense and send them out as soon as possible. That's the plan. But he is now the perfect age and still is able to make big steps. I thought he played in the last game like a Liverpool player: highest intensity, all good, was not fixed in a position, flexible, half-left, half-right, in the box.feedback

Sep 19 2017

A new start is, very often, kind of a relief. You are in a situation in your old club – I don't say it now for Alex especially but in general it's like this – you are in a specific position and you accept it at some point and then it's difficult to make the next step. We play different to Arsenal, that's clear. It doesn't mean better or worse, it just means different.feedback

Sep 19 2017

Probably, when Alex was 18 or 19 people thought he could be 'the man', like a lot of people think a lot of times pretty early. But, as I always say, you immediately put a rucksack on their back and that makes development not easy.feedback

Sep 19 2017

I saw already a lot of things and, at the end, he didn't score a goal so probably a lot of people will say that's not a proper Liverpool player. But I'm really happy to have him here and I hope he is also happy to be here.feedback

Sep 19 2017

It's clear we want him and he also wants to stay. It is about a few little details.feedback

Sep 19 2017

Arsenal changed a lot of since Alex is there. I'm sure they didn't always play with three in the back, wing-backs and stuff like this. I played against Arsenal when Alex was centre-mid, I played against Arsenal when he was on the wing, I played Arsenal when he was wing-back. He played different positions and that all is highest quality.feedback

Sep 19 2017

That makes development not easier, so hide them as long as makes sense. That's the plan. But he's now in the perfect age and is still able to make big steps.feedback

Sep 19 2017

If you can play in the Premier League in different positions, that says a lot of you. It's a judgement from outside that you don't develop. But playing different positions is development.feedback

Sep 19 2017

We can already use him and that's good, but we also want to prepare him – that's all. It's all good.feedback

Sep 19 2017

It's just because we play different to Arsenal.feedback

Sep 19 2017

That doesn't mean better or worse, it's just means different. At least being involved in a different football [style] is already development because it helps you react in different moments, so that's not always doing the same.feedback

Sep 19 2017

The story of this game is really easy to tell. We were the much better team in the first half, we didn't score – that's sometimes part of football. It was unlucky in one or two moments, maybe not clinical enough in others. But as long as we concede goals like we conceded today again, then it is quite difficult.feedback

Sep 19 2017

After the first goal you saw the heads from Leicester went up, that was a bigger difference. The game changes in moments like this – you have the chance to do it by yourself or sometimes you are on the wrong side. But that we concede like this, that makes me really, really sick.feedback

Sep 18 2017

When Alex was probably 18 or 19, people thought he could be 'the man' – how a lot of people think a lot of the time pretty early. How I say, you immediately put a rucksack on their back.feedback

Sep 18 2017

I think it would be strange if I have to say something about a player after two-and-a-half weeks when Arsene Wenger said this after working together with him for six or seven years. But a new start is very often kind of a relief. You are in a situation in your old club – I don't say this for Alex especially, just in general it is like this – you are in a specific position and accept it and then at some point it's difficult to make the next step.feedback

Sep 18 2017

So far I can't see that [he struggles to believe in himself]. He has settled in perfectly, but he knew all the England players and a few others. He's really nice lad so it's easy for him to settle in the team, he takes the situation like it is.feedback

Sep 18 2017

We have to take the criticism and the blame. It's not allowed for us to be happy or satisfied after [Burnley], but we cannot question everything. I can see the good and the bad things.feedback

Sep 18 2017

Solanke hit the crossbar, do I need to talk to him about this? Outside, people do.feedback

Sep 18 2017

I didn't see a lack of being ruthless. They were in the right positions. For example: Sturridge, usually he will score [against Burnley]. Shall I go to him and say, Daniel, what are you doing?feedback

Sep 16 2017 - Russia

We have to be strong, I know that, but we really can be strong.feedback

Sep 16 2017

That's a very important thing, so we have quite a good form or shape. We didn't win all of them and we lost one [to a] really high [score], but everyone who was there [saw it was a] strange game – it was not that we performed from the first second like you would imagine when somebody loses 5-0.feedback

Sep 16 2017

Yes, we have to improve, but [there are] a lot of really positive things. Unfortunately, I still don't feel any positivity in this moment, I am still in the 1-1 mood, but it is easy to see all the positive things from tomorrow on again. They are there.feedback

Sep 16 2017

We still have space for improvement, that was clear before the season, but we could have won pretty much all our games so far when you think about the performance.feedback

Sep 16 2017

We created moments. You cannot create in each situation a finishing situation, but we did it absolutely often enough. It feels strange, it feels wrong, but it's a fact – we drew.feedback

Sep 16 2017

Could Trent have won the first headed challenge? Yes.feedback

Sep 16 2017

Oh yeah, sometimes they make bulls**t, and we are not happy. Sometimes [there are] goals I'm angry about, and it's not the first one. Of course you wish we could have done differently, but that can happen. That's really life.feedback

Sep 16 2017

Let's say when I came here we started new and now we have this team. When I came in we were ninth and now, ooofff.' We are really on a good way.feedback

Sep 16 2017

My job is really to make the best out of this season and it's easy for me in a lot of moments to believe in this team – it's easy.feedback

Sep 16 2017

It will need real, proper work - shooting in the right moments, passing in the right moments and crossing in the right spaces.feedback

Sep 16 2017

That's something I have to consider when I do the line-up - we need freshness in mind and in legs for this game. There will be really small spaces, there won't be a lot of easy situations where you can outplay them or whatever.feedback

Sep 16 2017

They have a clear plan, and you can see it and see it and see it in each game. They stick to it and it's so difficult to play against it because their players show big desire to defend all the situations.feedback

Sep 15 2017

No. We watched all of them 500 million times, and to cool the people down what if the new player doesn't hit the first ball and he makes exactly the same mistake? A mistake they all made in their life – but it is like, he is a £65 million signing, he will improve. Why do you think the other one cannot improve? I don't understand that. My job is really to make the best out of this season and it's easy for me in a lot of moments to believe in this team – it's easy.feedback

Sep 15 2017

For me it's really difficult always to come to your planet, visit you and say 'yeah you're right, there were five good options out there and we missed them because, I don't know, we wanted to spend the money anywhere else.feedback

Sep 15 2017

A mistake they all made in their life – but it is like, he is a £65 million signing, he will improve. Why do you think the other one cannot improve? I don't understand that.feedback

Sep 15 2017

Sometimes we make mistakes because we are offensively that strong.feedback

Sep 15 2017

Really, with all this about [our defenders] go out there and ask other teams whether they'd like to pick them. You would be really surprised.feedback

Sep 15 2017

It is concentration. It is not a quality thing. But if there's no-one, no solution out there, and no real quality issue then you have to work on it and that is what we will do.feedback

Sep 15 2017

It is not that we ignore it - I said if there would have been a solution out there we would have done it. I had to make a decision and the decision was our boys are not worse than them. My job is really to make the best out of this season and it's easy for me in a lot of moments to believe in this team – it's easy.feedback

Sep 15 2017

It was really nice how the crowd welcomed him. Nobody was 100 per cent sure about this - I think for him it was good. He was outstanding in training in the few sessions we've had so far.feedback

Sep 15 2017

The game was not perfect, but that's how it is after the long break. However, it helped him and it helped us. [Phil Coutinho] trained outstanding in the few sessions we had together. For sure, he's ready to think about [as a starter].feedback

Sep 14 2017

It is not a general defending problem but we have to improve 100 per cent.feedback

Sep 14 2017

It is about being dominant and losing a bit of a grip on the game in all the defensive moments.feedback

Sep 14 2017

We know we have to improve but there is so much potential and we can work with this. It is a draw, it does not feel too good but I am fine with big parts of the performance. It does not make too much sense to be frustrated, we have to take it. It is not what we wanted, not what we deserved. They had two chances, no more so we were the dominant side and defended well.feedback

Sep 13 2017

If we shoot that often and don't score then probably it is a problem, but I don't think it will be like this. In a game like this, usually you score more often than we did tonight, so nobody should rely on this that we try that often and don't score. That's all space for improvement for all of us. We need to learn to be dominant and not to give easy goals away and the first one was, for sure, not necessary and too easy.feedback

Sep 13 2017

The second, I have absolutely no clue how they came through that, to be honest, I have to see that again. It's not a general defending problem but we have to improve, 100 per cent.feedback

Sep 13 2017

The most important thing in football is creating chances and we did that in different situations. Could we have scored? Yes, but we didn't.feedback

Sep 13 2017

We will come back stronger. We will use the time we do not have in Europe and train and we will make other finals.feedback

Sep 13 2017

At this moment we expect him back in the morning for normal training.feedback

Sep 13 2017

He was in and the doctor told me Mo Salah can train, but what would be best for him is if he doesn't have to. He has a little bit of a sore throat. It shouldn't be that serious [but] he can't spread the virus if there is one.feedback

Sep 13 2017

It was pretty much a winning performance for 85-86 minutes and the team played well against a side who play well. We had answers for everything apart from the goals. I have to see them again. That is not the good thing. It was an exciting game from my side, everyone saw our desire and passion but we got a point.feedback

Sep 13 2017

We are good in the counter-attack and it was an unlucky start for us. Things like this can happen but reaction is the important thing. We could have scored more often but if we continue playing like this, we will get points. In this moment it does not feel perfect.feedback

Sep 12 2017

I could give you an idea at this stage. But I'm sure Liverpool supporters around the world are ready to wait another 24 hours.feedback

Sep 12 2017

What I can say is, if nothing happens overnight, Loris Karius will play – that's true.feedback

Sep 12 2017

We don't want to underestimate this, it looks awful and Ederson was lucky nothing more serious happened in this situation.feedback

Sep 12 2017

I'm not sure if I'm disappointed, I didn't expect anything different. I thought our appeal was absolutely right. We never appealed the red card, only the length of the suspension. But actually I never thought [a reduction in the ban] would happen, only because I am used to things like this. It's not an English thing. There were lots of situations in the last few weeks that were similar. If you want, all the other players were lucky. Only Sadio was not lucky and Ederson was not lucky.feedback

Sep 12 2017

The most important thing for me to say is not even one per cent of Sadio wanted to put the goalkeeper in danger. He wanted to get the ball. It's important he wants to do that in all the games he plays. We cannot change this. It's a sport where things like this happen.feedback

Sep 12 2017

We only wanted to bring into relation with the other issues. If they would have said: 'It's two games, not three games' then I think it would still be a red card.feedback

Sep 12 2017

He already has half-a-game suspension from City, so I think it would have been a right decision if they would have said: 'One game less', so it's two and a half instead of three and a half.feedback

Sep 12 2017

It was our duty to appeal, but as I said after the game, it was a waste of time.feedback

Sep 12 2017 - Doping

I thought that [Financial] Fair Play was made so that situations like that can't happen.feedback

Sep 10 2017

I pray he heals fast and is back playing very soon because he is highest quality player.feedback

Sep 10 2017

I was outside with Pep and we both didn't think it's a red card.feedback

Sep 09 2017

Sadio is very very very upset. He is shocked about the situation and I am sure also about the situation. It was an accident – very unlucky. Everyone knows he didn't see the goalie.feedback

Sep 09 2017

It was a hard lesson today. It was a difficult situation. I was still positive but with one man down against City, it is really not the best place to be. We could have done better in the second half. It was hard for the boys but I don't look for excuses. We also need to learn in the first half we need to influence the game in another direction. We need to score here. Everybody saw it.feedback

Sep 09 2017

We should have scored in the first half and we should have had more chances. Mo Salah was three or four times on the touchline in the 18-yard box or even in the six-yard box and no one was on the front post.feedback

Sep 09 2017

I will try to ignore the result. Not the mistakes but the result. That is already done.feedback

Sep 09 2017

I saw the goalie already and obviously it's not that bad. In the first moment everyone thought it was really bad.feedback
