At the end of May, the Spanish team proved to be stronger in Paris, winning 1-0 and winning this trophy for a record 14th time. About nine months have passed since that confrontation, which contains a lot of interesting things. And if Real Madrid continues at the top and fights for the title in all the competitions in which it participates, Liverpool have lost a lot.
The Reds have already been knocked out of the FA Cup and are in eighth place in the Premier League, 19 points behind league leaders Arsenal. Merseyside manager Jurgen Klopp is tired of making excuses for his players’ failures, although in the last two games – against Everton and Newcastle – he managed to score six points. However, it is too soon to say that Liverpool are back. The team has huge problems, not only in personnel, but also directly in the game.
– Of course, I am dissatisfied with our position. We can play better, much better. Of all the latest failures, only one person is responsible – it’s me. If someone wants to criticize the team, the players, then he should start with me, -Klopp responds to the attacks in the press.
