Jurgen Klopp Thinks Liverpool Didn't Play Like They Deserve Champions League Next Year

Jurgen Klopp feels that Liverpool did not play to the best of their capabilities against Newcastle. During the game Klopp observed that his team did not posses the danger that won them the Champions League in the 2018-19  season.

Jurgen Klopp has never seen Liverpool in such a sorry state before. A routine game against the Tyneside club caused a lot of struggle for the Merseyside Reds.

In an interview on 24th April 2021, Klopp said, “When I see a game, I can tell guess the level of dedication my team needs to have to beat their opponents.”

“But against Newcastle they did not have desire to beat their opponents. Hence they played like they don’t deserve the Champions League next year” said Klopp.

Liverpool won the Champion League outright in the 2018-19 season. But they have now struggled to win games against mid-table sides in the EPL. The issues behind Liverpool’s crisis would be their lack of a goalscorer and a defensive rock. But most importantly they need the  mentality to win games in the EPL and the CL.

These issues were highlighted in both the legs of the Quarter Finals against Real Madrid. Jurgen Klopp witnessed over the two legs against the Los Blancos how Liverpool could not have the last say.
