Klopp praises Mo Salah after Liverpool Rangers
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp showers praise on Mo Salah as he calls him a special talent after the Egyptian king got himself a hat trick after being introduced in the second half.
Mo Salah came from the bench to get a hat trick in Liverpool’s 7-1 win over Rangers in the UCL on Wednesday.
Jurgen Klopp was full of praise for the winger who is far from hitting top form this season.
“We had a really positive half-time talk. We wanted more in the second half. Clearly, it worked out,” he told BT Sport.
“It was special, particularly Mo. It was very important how we adapted to the positions, to the line-up. Everyone who started tonight played really well. Fabio [Carvalho] and Harvey, really good.
“It’s the best we could have asked for. I’m really pleased.
“I really think the first half prepared the second half. When we are on it, we can be a really good football team. We built on the good things from the first half, we kept them moving and obviously they had to change the centre-half.
“The goals we scored were exceptional. It’s a night where things worked out for us. It changes the mood definitely, and that’s good.
“We all know who is coming on Sunday [Manchester City]. That will be different, but it’s better to go in with the feeling from tonight.”
Rangers on the other hand lie at the bottom of the table and their manager had these to say as well
“It was a very disappointing result. We played well first half and were in the game,” he said.
“The second goal, we know their strength. When you lose the ball in the middle of the pitch they are so fast on transition. We got caught a couple of times.
“We conceded too many easy goals. It went pretty quickly after that. We tried to push, but after the 3-1 you could see we were struggling. They upped the tempo and we weren’t accurate in our passing.”
