For Taki it was the very first pre-season with us correctly; it was the very first pre-season for a long time with Ox. I believe Ox played in six pre-season video games, was part of it, Taki probably. Ideally they can all remain healthy and they can put for the whole season pressure on each other in a very favorable way– who wants to play has to play like we did today or in the other day in moments.
On Liverpools performance …
Certainly really great to have Kostas in the back hand, to have little Owen Beck in the back hand, which is great.
Read a summary of the interview listed below …
It was the last warm-up game for Klopps guys before they begin the campaign proper with a journey to Norwich City on Saturday afternoon.
Not truly, but I think we got fortunate with that. It might have been much worse. We saw the footage, it didnt look too well. I believe we got lucky, it will not be too long. Im not sure [, if] before the international break or after the global break, its difficult in these situations. But not too long. Obviously actually good to have Kostas in the back hand, to have little Owen Beck in the back hand, which is great.
On heading into Saturday with excitement …
First off, my hope is that with the fit gamers it stays like this since the season starts and after that you have various durations in the season and we need them all. We require them all, thats for sure. I am not famous for being negative, however I simply hope it stays like this, that we can keep bringing people into the arena and then you can see, both groups– the other day and today– were absolutely inspired by that. Its good for individuals, its excellent for the players and it is far more enjoyment, much simpler to delight in everything, much more emotional. There is far more enthusiasm in and beyond the stands. Yes, I am extremely thrilled about the brand-new season, definitely.
Played actually excellent in midfield, Ox was on fire obviously, Fab controlled together with the young boys out there.
Post-match, in charge talked to Liverpoolfc.com about the triumph over Osasuna, the support he takes from some of the individual performances of his players, and the news that Andy Robertson suffered ankle ligament damage on Sunday.
On a timeframe for Robertsons injury …
The counter-pressing circumstances with especially now Bobby and Oxlade was simply really great and how it ought to be. The last line worked excellent together, protected well. And the objectives we scored were impressive. We could have scored currently earlier with the super pass of Ibou [to] Taki. He couldnt complete that but then the next one he rounded off– fantastic. Truly nothing to moan about. The second half was harder but we asked the young boys to control it somewhat more, blend the rhythm, which is then clearly not too easy to do but they attempted. With all the changes, we didnt actually interrupt the rhythm. It was great.
First off, my hope is that with the fit players it gamers like remains because the since starts and begins you have different periods various durations season and we need them all. Its excellent for the people, its excellent for the players and it is much more enjoyment, much easier to take pleasure in whatever, much more psychological.
Hopefully they can all stay healthy and they can put for the whole season pressure on each other in an extremely positive way– who desires to play has to play like we did today or in yesterday in moments. On heading into Saturday with excitement …
The first half was absolutely very first in real different departments. The method we, first of all, protected the second balls– due to the fact that we didnt have to do that last night too often however today undoubtedly Osasuna have a various method, so a lot of long balls. Played truly great in midfield, Ox was on fire clearly, Fab managed together with the boys out there.
