Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has insisted he is disappointed after his side’s defeat which was very hard to take but there are many more finals to come and his side will learn from this one.
Speaking in a press conference after the match, Klopp who has now nost five finals in a row including two this season after the Capital One Cup penalty shootout loss to Manchester city, he says “There are more important things in life than football. I don’t think God had a plan with me to go to the final and always have bad luck,” he said. “I’ve had a lot of luck in my life. I sit here as manager of Liverpool. I don’t think I am an unlucky person or life has not been good to me.”I will carry on and I will be in another final – and you’ll tell me I lost the last five finals. I will try to reach the next final even when I know I can lose it. “There are bigger problems in life but at this moment it doesn’t feel like it, it is really hard.”
Reacting to the manner in which Sevilla rallied back, Klopp said his side were devastated by the early goal Sevilla scored in the second half and needs to bounce back better in situations like that. “At this moment we lost faith in our style of play, we changed from passing quick and simple to complicated, and lost our formation,” he said. “It was not compact any more. I tried to change it, but you could see that maybe the team was shocked, maybe the crowd was shocked.”It is not good to concede a goal straight after half-time but you have 44 minutes to strike back and the reaction was the problem. We have to learn to react better in situations like this.”We are disappointed and frustrated 100 per cent, but tomorrow or later in the week we will see it a little bit more clearly and we will use this experience – that is what we have to do.”
