Jurgen Klopp said in a press statement after the meeting: “We will learn and come back again. ”
He continued: “There’s still a match in Madrid and we want to win.”
He added: “I told the players it’s a hard hit, yes, but a defeat is a defeat if we don’t learn from it.”
And he continued: “I’m not sure if their third goal was due to a correct mistake, but at that moment we should have defended better.”
And he added: “We started the match perfectly and perfectly. We wanted to create difficulties for them. We moved forward by scoring two goals and we were not effective with their goals.”
He continued: “We have to play like we did in the first half and we want to get our morale back up again. They scored more goals but we lost 5-2 and we have to learn from what happened.”
And he added: “We should not force the opponent to score in this way. In the second half, we lost the ball in a strange way and did not possess it.”
And he continued: “In the second half we didn’t defend or attack them. We shouldn’t have given them room for their players. After their third goal, we couldn’t come back.”
And he concluded: “It will be a difficult task for them at their home stadium. Every missed opportunity tonight was dangerous for them. We must learn from tonight.”
