“We will make the Europa League our tournament”
Liverpool head coach Jurgen Klopp commented on the draw with Aston Villa (1:1) in the match of the 37th round of the English Premier League.
“Disappointing, no matter how you look at this result. We made a real fight in pursuit of the Champions League zone. But the opponents scored more points. We wanted to make the race fun for another week, but we couldn’t.
After the game I asked the guys who was very, very good on the field today? It was hard to find one. But the character we showed was good. Aston Villa had problems in the second half but did not know what to do with them.
The timing was just wow. We saw how in the match against Sevilla the ballboys left the country altogether. And in the Roma game with Bayer Leverkusen, how long was the ball on the field at all? 10 injury minutes is good, but we should have received another 5 injury minutes before injury time. Everyone does it. We have seen in many matches this season, it has nothing to do with the result against Villa, just a general football theme.
We will make the Europa League our tournament. I’m not that spoiled. That we have already qualified for the Europa League is unbelievable with all the teams around us. It was very hard, but we managed. And once it was when we did not hear the Champions League anthem for a long time. The Europa League is an absolutely good tournament for us. Let’s see what we can do there,” Klopp said.
