Asked after the game if he would be worried about being sacked like Tuchel did, Klopp said: “I wouldn’t worry about that because our top team is calmer and they expect me to find a solution. I didn’t think anyone else would solve it.”
Klopp also emphasized that he will reform the team well next: “It is difficult to accept such a result. We have never really entered the game. The problems on the field are obvious, but why did this happen, I can’t answer it now, I need to think hard. We have to reinvent ourselves. I have a lot of work to do and it’s my responsibility. There are some obvious things that we have to start over.”
