Liverpool have identified their flaws since their Champions League loss to Napoli and must again find consistency in their performances if they are to beat Ajax Amsterdam in their second group game, he said on Monday his coach, Juergen Klopp.
Klopp said the 4-1 defeat at Napoli last week was the “worst game we’ve played since I’ve been here”, adding that analyzing the game was like watching a “horror movie” with at least eight players under your level.
“We had a meeting, we showed them the situations and I didn’t have to say much, the players know that. We have put ourselves in this situation,” Klopp told reporters ahead of Tuesday’s game at Anfield.
“There were obvious football problems that were due to errors in appreciation. Everyone wanted to solve it for themselves, there was no structure.”
“We’ve had four or five days of absolute truth, not to hammer the players, just to make sure where we are now. This is the starting point for us to solve problems together on the pitch, without accusing each other.”
Liverpool, however, took another hit with injury, as Klopp said full-back Andy Robertson will be sidelined until after this month’s international break. Curtis Jones will also not be available.
Ajax have won all their league games this season to move to the top of the Eredivisie table and Klopp praised Alfred Schreuder’s team for coping despite losing several players from last season. in the transfer period.
