Jurgen Klopp has revealed that he sent a ‘long, long text‘ to the Liverpool players after the crushing loss to Aston Villa in the Premier League earlier this month.
Speaking exclusively to the BBC, the boss stated he spoke to his team after the 7-2 defeat via text message.
It was an embarrassing loss, with neither Liverpool nor any Premier League champions ever being able to lose by a five-goal margin without it being a disaster.
It’s good to hear the boss did send a composed message to his players after the game had finished, while we’re sure he gave them the hairdryer treatment too.
