Why Klopp had to tell off Alisson Becker in the first-half vs Atalanta

Posted by

Alisson Becker had to be reminded of his position during Liverpool’s Europa League clash with Atalanta.

Ian Doyle posted on X (formerly Twitter) during the tie in Bergamo, spotting Jurgen Klopp telling off his No.1 for staying too far away from goal.

The Merseysiders lead 1-0 at the Gewiss Stadium, courtesy of Mo Salah’s penalty opener, as things currently stand.

Alisson’s return a huge boost

Caoimhin Kelleher’s contributions in this period shouldn’t be forgotten. The Republic of Ireland international played a key part in ensuring we made it to this stage in the knockouts.

That said, it simply can’t be argued that Alisson is a class above most ‘keepers in world football. His return to the first-XI, first slotting back in against Crystal Palace, could prove to be the difference between additional silverware and Jurgen Klopp’s farewell tour having the wind knocked out of its sails.

Now then… just the small matter of one of the potentially great comebacks in Europe we need to progress to the semi-finals.

  1. I am so sick and tired of all the speculation. Every second day it’s a different coach. Hopefully the owners will make sure we get a decent coach. Klopp looks tired and must go and rest.

    1. I think maybe we are talking too much instead of doing business quietly. Coach this coach that, and it goes on and on it’s irksome. Just get us a coach. With regards to players, sometimes we speculate too much, too long, allowing teams like Chelsea always trying to upstage us. We identify a talent and they jump after him.
