Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp expressed delight at his side’s win against AC Milan in the last game of their Champions League group campaign. In doing so, Liverpool became the first English team to win all their group stage matches. Mohamed Salah and Divock Origi scored in their 2-0 come from behind win against the Italian giants. Klopp rang the changes with eight different players starting in the Premier League against Wolves.
“Honestly I don’t feel pride a lot in football because most of the time I expect good things to happen,” Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp said. “But tonight there was a lot of pride, an exceptional performance; I don’t mean because we won six games, I mean this game because it was so good with that many changes. It is easy for me to make the changes, but the boys have to be confident enough to show how good they are and I saw so many good football things tonight which is incredible.”
“And we won all six games, which is absolutely incredible and just another chapter for this group of players,” he added. “It’s not a prize (winning all six) and you win something; I’d have taken each points tally to go to the next round but 18 is the best so we take that as well. I really thought we defended exceptionally well. The plan of Milan was playing through the centre, through the half-spaces between the winger and our eights.”
