Klopp sorry for losing it after Merseyside derby victor

Share

The German took to the pitch to celebrate his side's last gasp Merseyside derby victor on Sunday evening, running to hug goalkeeper Alisson Becker, who had started the move that led to the 96th minute header from Divock Origi.

The Reds beat local rivals Everton with a 96th minute goal from unlikely hero Divock Origi, prompting Klopp to race on to the pitch and embrace goalkeeper Alisson. He's celebrating. I don't know if we had scored in that moment what would be my reaction. We only wanted to win that game.

"We make mistakes, but usually I learn from it - at least over a long period".

And speaking to Sky Sports after the game, Origi said: "It's a special moment, I am enjoying it and it is special for the club and the city".

"Everyone is devastated because of the work we put in".

"[He can be] more consistent, his first controls, his receptions, many things".

"You could see the emotion of the fans and the coach and the players so we celebrated all together".

"But sometimes it's what it is, it's an emotional game". Football-wise, in a lot of moments [we were] really good. I know that I am rather on the jump and on the run when something happens. But can you carry [on for] two or three days?

"No, he didn't apologise to me", Silva said. It's not the first time we have been there. I thought we were really unlucky not to get a point and could even have won it, if only for a goal line clearance and a weird goal.

"This season, the second goal against Shakhtar was a ridiculous penalty, so it's not to talk about just my benefit or to talk about what happened last season with Mateu Lahoz [the referee against Liverpool]".

"Today he is not ready but we will see later".

It has been a struggle for the forward to adapt to Klopp's new 4-2-3-1 formation - the player himself seems so much more effective in a 4-3-3 set-up - and, with winnable league games against Burnley and Bournemouth coming up before a win-or-bust Champions League clash with Napoli, now seems like a ideal time to rest Firmino.
