The head of the Reds saw his Premier League champions struggling to break the European minnows in a gloomy first half, and even after Diogo Jota’s opener in the 55th minute, Liverpool could not finish the game until Mohamed Salah’s penalty in injury time.
The Champions League visit of Danish champions FC Midtjylland to Anfield was not the easiest of nights for Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp.
It was a tough night for Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp when the Reds defeated Danish champions FC Midtjylland in the Champions League at Anfield, but after the game there was at least a slight relief for him.
The 19-year-old Rhys Williams was replaced and showed good performances, but the Reds are now eagerly awaiting the scan results of the Brazilian.
Worse still, Liverpool’s defensive crisis worsened when central defender Fabinho was pulled up in the central defensive stand and had to be replaced before half-time with an apparent hamstring injury.
The head of the Reds could not stop laughing when he was asked a question of Fred Caldeira of Esporte Interativo, who wore a bushy moustache.
Since Virgil van Dijk has been eliminated with a long knee injury and Joel Matip is also currently unavailable, Joe Gomez remains the only fit central defender in the senior national team.
After the game, the Liverpool manager was at least temporarily slightly relieved when he did his press work after the game.
Klopp, who himself had a robust “soup coach” during his time as a player in Germany near Mainz, giggled in his typical style.
He said: “Wow… who do you look like… how is the Colombian film with the drug dealer?
Later he asked Klopp if he was thinking of getting a moustache, to which the bearded boss of the Reds said: “I had that, but I let the other part grow as well.
The reporter answered: “Pablo Escobar! And even after that, I still have a girlfriend.”
Pablo Escobar was a Colombian drug baron and narco-terrorist who was considered the richest criminal in history, having accumulated an estimated net worth of $30 billion by the time he died in 1993.
