Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has stated that he was “disappointed” but not “mad” about his team’s Champions League elimination at Real Madrid’s hands on Wednesday night.

Liverpool were eliminated at the last-16 stage after suffering a 1-0 defeat in the second leg at the Bernabeu, despite having to overcome a three-goal deficit from the first leg played three weeks prior at Anfield.

Real Madrid advanced to the quarterfinals with a 6-2 aggregate victory thanks to Karim Benzema’s second-half goal, while Liverpool owed Alisson Becker thanks for keeping the score reasonable.

What Jurgen Klopp said to the reporters?

A late handball call against Kostas Tsimikas was also overturned in favor of the Reds, but they were unable to mount the kind of stunning comeback that would have kept their chances of winning a trophy for the 2022–23 season alive.

After the game, Klopp acknowledged that his team did not put up a “special performance” when necessary and that Real Madrid had earned the victory over the two legs.

Klopp:

“We came here with the backpack we had with the three goals difference. You need a special performance and we didn’t show a special performance tonight.

I was not angry after the game, but I was disappointed. I would be angry if we would have played better and it was close and then they win because of a penalty which was not a penalty or stuff like this. But in the end that all didn’t happen. Real Madrid were just the better side and I am long enough in the business to respect that.”

A race to the top four

Klopp:

“Our job is to squeeze absolutely everything out of this season what is possible. There is again distance because other teams won their games… it is clear, we want to be top four, but if we can do that, we will decide on the pitch [and] not here in the press conference.”

Due to Fulham’s involvement in the FA Cup quarterfinals, this weekend’s scheduled match between the two teams has been postponed. As a result, Liverpool won’t play again until traveling to the Etihad to play champions Man City on April 1 after the international break.
