Klopp’s farewell match is decided

Klopp's farewell match is decided

Perhaps it was because his team never came close to creating a miracle in Bergamo. In any case, Jürgen Klopp had no problems quickly getting through the competition following Liverpool FC’s elimination from the Europa League on Thursday. “Atalanta deserved to go through and that seems good to me,” Klopp congratulated himself after the 1-0 away victory, which could no longer compensate for the 0-3 defeat at Anfield. “I don’t want to get ahead if I don’t deserve it, so it’s all good.”

Instead of the Europa League final in Dublin on June 22, Klopp will end his Liverpool era on Sunday, June 19. His farewell match will be at Anfield against Wolverhampton Wanderers, who will be invited on matchday 38 and could witness a championship celebration. Although the Reds are only third after two consecutive stumbles in the league, two points behind leaders Manchester City, Klopp has seen his team get back on track since Thursday.

“That’s how the rest of the season started, with a good result and a good performance. That’s how we see it,” the coach skillfully interpreted the 1-0 and said about the Premier League: “Now it’s our competition.” There’s no one else left.

What Klopp found “absolutely crazy” about Alexander-Arnold and Mac Allister

While ManCity will face Chelsea in the FA Cup semi-final on Saturday and will therefore not be able to play in the league, Liverpool will play Bernd Leno’s FC Fulham on Sunday (17:30, LIVE ! in the kicker). It will be Klopp’s sixth game as Liverpool manager. “It’s going to be complicated, but we’re giving it our all.”

Two people Klopp explicitly highlighted did that in Bergamo: Trent Alexander-Arnold, who returned to his starting XI after a week-long break, and frequent player Alexis Mac Allister. “We saw for a while which player we were missing. Together with ‘Macca’, he set the pace, the rhythm, the direction of the game. Of course, at some point he lost his steam a little.” Klopp also described the fact that the right-back started and Mac Allister played as “absolutely crazy”.
