Jurgen Klopp “angry” after Liverpool’s slow start against Swansea


Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp admits the first half performance from his side against Swansea was enough to make him angry.

The Reds fell behind early at the Liberty Stadium when a corner eventually fell to Leroy Fer, however, equalised after the break through Roberto Firmino before James Milner’s penalty completed the comeback.

Klopp says it took a bit of reflection during half-time to get his players back into the necessary mentality.

“We were angry at half-time, but with ourselves, nobody else,” said the Liverpool manager after the game.

“So we had to show we can do better because [up to that point] nobody could see why we were here.

“It looked like we were there for a football game but we were there because we want to win a football game. In the second half, there was no doubt about this anymore.”

Milner, who would net the winning goal from the penalty spot in the 83rd minute, says that the manager’s words at the interval helped turn their performance around.

“It needed to be better, I think we all knew that. Big credit to the manager and all the boys,” he added.

“The manager knew it, he was angry but he kept most of it in, said what needed to be said and got us going.”
