Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp has told his players that winning points is better than playing well. This he did during his side’s 2-1 win over Tottenham on Sunday.
Liverpool needed an own goal from Toby Alderweireld to seal all three points and remain top of the English Premier League table.
Speaking after the game, Mo Salah revealed the discussion he had with Klopp
“I went to the dressing room and I spoke to the manager.
“He said that it isn’t about playing good but the most important thing is to find a way of winning points.
“The big teams always find a way to get the points.
“Today we didn’t play the top of our game but we won the game that is the most important thing – that is a big team,” Salah told Sky Sports.
When Jurgen Klopp spoke to Sky Sports, he said:
“The crowd was outstanding, incredible atmosphere. They were really here to push us and at the end it helped.
“It’s a big change, a big improvement. We have to get used to the situation, it’s all good. It is only positive. I said to the lads there are 500 ways to win a football game and today was slightly ugly. Who cares in the end? Who cares? That’s the situation.
“I was not happy that we concede a goal but maybe we needed it. First half we had chances but second half we could not relax, a little bit too late here. They changed from five to four, and we tried to changed the system as well.”
