Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp met the media a few hours ago to preview his side’s huge clash tomorrow at home against Chelsea. In the session he made a hilarious analogy about his team and the current state of morale. When asked about if he’s had to lift morale after the Tuesday night collapse at Sevilla in UEFA Champions League play, Klopp said “we are not in kindergarten.”

The Reds maintained a 3-0 lead until midway through the second half, but squandered it away, ending in a 3-3 draw, as Sevilla finally equalized in extra time. Had they held on to win, the Reds would have clinched their passage through to the knockout round.

Obviously, it was a major blow and after the match Jurgen Klopp told the media that his side simply just stopped playing football in the second half.

Liverpool left back Alberto Moreno said the team simply came out half asleep in the second half.

However, time heals all wounds and today Klopp told his news conference:

“I’m not sure we have to lift them. We are not in kindergarten where we have to lift (players) for everything. We have to talk about the things. Yes, we made mistakes and we were passive. In a lot of situations we were deep as a group and we didn’t play football anymore. That’s all true.”

“That’s how it is with games and the result is only one (piece of) information. We have much more information from a game. We made the analysis, but it will be a difficult game against Chelsea.”
