Jurgen Klopp takes fall for Liverpool’s loss to Burnley

Published

Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp, has blamed himself for his side’s 1-0 defeat to Burnley at Anfield on Thursday night.

The defeat marked the end of Liverpool’s 68-game unbeaten run on their home ground and Burnley’s first win on the ground since 1974.

Speaking after the match, the 53-year-old German coach took full responsibility for the defeat, Liverpool’s first at home since April 2017, coming after five games without a win in the league.

“The game was impossible to lose, but we did,” Klopp told Sky Sports. “That’s my fault because it’s my job to make sure the boys have the right feelings, the right amount of confidence and make the right decisions.

“That obviously didn’t work out because we had the ball a lot, created some situations that were OK, but in the final moment or decision-making is not right at the moment, and that’s the problem.

“You have the ball in the right place but then you don’t shoot, you pass. I’m pretty sure I said the same thing last week.

“When you have the problem of something not working you have to try harder, longer and more often and make better decisions. It’s obviously didn’t work out tonight and we have to admit that, there’s nothing else to say about it.”

Klopp added: “It’s always my fault, the things that don’t work are my fault, the things that do work are down to the players. Credit to the players because it’s what they make of it.

“We have worked so long together now that if I make clear which movements make sense and will hurt the opponent and we don’t do them, then I have to make it clearer. That’s how it is.”

Liverpool are now fourth on the league, six points behind Premier League leaders Manchester United ahead of Sunday’s FA Cup fourth-round tie at Old Trafford.
