Liverpool boss, Jurgen Klopp, has urged his players to wake up and play the best game ever against Manchester City in the Premier League tie.
Klopp felt his players were too soft and slow in delivering the final pass during Wednesday’s loss against Brighton and has used a colourful German proverb to demand what he’s looking for
“It was about the tempo of the ball against Brighton. They were only able to close the gaps because our passes were not hard enough,” said Klopp ahead of Sunday’s big game against Manchester City.
“The boys have known me long enough that if you pass the ball nine million times in exactly the right way and three or four times not, then we talk only about these three or four times.
“It is not too cool but it is important. We will work on the tempo. Just Bam!
“If the situation is there, we have the ball, no pressure on us and two or three runners (and don’t capitalise), then we destroy with our backside what we build with our hands. It is a translation from a German phrase and that was the situation against Brighton.”
