Klopp: “We have to carry on and we will carry on”

Posted by

Jurgen Klopp has been speaking to the media in the aftermath of our penalty shootout loss to Man City in the League Cup final.

He said he was “disappointed”, but also “pleased with lots of things [he] saw in the game” (speaking to SkySports, via BBC).

“I am disappointed of course with the end. Pleased with a lot of things I saw in the game,” said the German.

“We tried everything, we scored the goal. We had a big chance with another few situations. It is unlucky but it is one way to lose a cup final.

“Manchester City should not have scored their goal, we had to strike back and we did. We played well in a lot of moments. It doesn’t matter what I say now, it won’t change the result.

“We all have to feel it now. It is was it is. You can fall but it is how you stand up. We cannot change this game now, we have to carry on and we will carry on.”

His opposite number Manuel Pelligrini has also been speaking, saying that his men “deserved to win”.

“We deserved to win the game, we missed chances but if you asked me which way I’d prefer to win I’d prefer to win it is this way.

“I’d rather lose the title than lose my word. A lot of media were waiting to criticise me if Willy Caballero makes a mistake. I had a lot of trust in Caballero. I am very pleased for all the players and staff but more for him because he deserved it.

“We are working very hard. I don’t remember Willy making one save in the 90 minutes. They draw in the last eight minutes and it was not easy for me to make a change but we finished the better.”
