Jurgen Klopp refused to blame the intense atmosphere in Serbia for defeat to Red Star Belgrade – insisting that his team were not affected by it.
According to LiverpoolFC.com, he said: “It was a good football atmosphere; I don’t think it would have been impossible to perform. Whatever they sang, we don’t understand. It was only loud.
“The atmosphere, singing-wise and noise-wise or whatever, was not a problem. But the atmosphere after the second goal especially, in the whole club, if you want, they could now smell it.
“At half-time, we walked a long way to the dressing room and they were all in a very positive mood.”
If it wasn’t the atmosphere, we don’t know what caused the poor showing from all those in red. Whatever it was, it will need to be rectified quickly.
