“The most important thing is confirming first place in the group”
Coach Klopp expressed his thoughts on securing a big win and first place in the group.
Liverpool won 4-0 in the 5th match of Group E of the ‘2023-2024 UEFA Europa League’ group stage against LASK Linz held at Anfield in Liverpool, England on December 1 (Korean time).
Liverpool won by 4 goals despite using a rotation against Linz, which was considered one level below.
Cody Hakpo scored multiple goals, and Luis Dias and Mohamed Salah added one goal each.
With the win on this day, Liverpool secured first place in the group regardless of the result of the final match and advanced directly to the round of 16 of the Europa League. 토토사이트
In an interview with Britain’s TNT Sports after the game, manager Jurgen Klopp said of the victory, “The most important thing is that we have confirmed first place in the group, which is good.”
Klopp continued: “There were a lot of good points and there were bad points. That can happen. As I always say, we are still growing and improving. There was some good football, but this game should have been over in the first half. If you are ahead, you have to make sure you kill it. “We couldn’t do that,” he said, not being satisfied with the 4-0 win.
By securing first place in the group, the burden of the last game was eased. Coach Klopp said, “The last game against Union Saint-Gille-Louis will also be important. We will go there and play football to win, but it is good that we do not have to do that.”
