Klopp tells Liverpool to shock Barcelona or ‘fail beautifully’

By on

Jürgen Klopp was occupied with keeping the Premier League title race alive in between Champions League dates with Barcelona yet found time for a history lesson with Liverpool’s players before the formidable task that awaits on Tuesday.

It concerned the art of recovering from a 3-0 defeat against Spanish opposition and the willingness, should another feat of Anfield escapology prove beyond them, to “fail in the most beautiful way”.

Klopp has savoured a European comeback as Liverpool manager before, when his new team were twice left needing three goals to overcome his old one, Borussia Dortmund, in the 2016 Europa League quarter-finals.

They delivered on that raucous night at Anfield, but without Mohamed Salah – whose concussion sustained against Newcastle means a mandatory six-day break before he can return against Wolves on Sunday – and injured Roberto Firmino, and against Lionel Messi and Luis Suárez, it would eclipse anything the stadium has witnessed in European competition to preserve Klopp’s record of never having lost a Uefa knockout tie as the Liverpool manager.
