Jurgen Klopp was a happy man last night.
Liverpool finally got an important win under their belt. They were going through a torrid time and are possibly not entirely out of it yet. However, yesterday’s performance was as good as ever specially in this situation.
Liverpool took on RB Leipzig in the Champions League round of 16 first leg clash. It was an away match against a tough opponent and Liverpool came away with a powerful 2-0 win against the Germans.
“It was the game we wanted, the game we needed,” he told BT Sport. “Leipzig can be a real monster, they overrun teams, they are really physical and tonight we controlled them in an exceptional way. We played a really good game and we got the result we deserved.
“We defended really well and had good recovery. It was a tough game with only two days since the last one. It’s only the first leg, we know that but a lot of people were waiting for us to slip again.
“For two years we were really good and this year we have problems, that’s fine. A lot of people expected us to slip again but the boys didn’t.”
