Did you see Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp SLAP himself in head after 93 minutes? Here’s why | Football | Sport


That was after Andy Robertson got booked for the Reds and picked up a suspension for the first leg of the quarter-final.

Klopp reacted in disbelief by hitting himself in the head moments before the full-time whistle.

But the German is not worried about missing the left-back despite admitting it was ‘silly’ for him to get booked.

He said: “It was silly but he is still a young boy. We should not worry about things like that though.”

Sadio Mane starred for Liverpool as he netted twice in a dominant performance at the Allianz Arena.

The score was 1-1 at half-time thanks to a Joel Matip own goal but the Reds took control in the second 45 minutes.

Virgil van Dijk powered a header home from a corner before Mane secured the result in the 84th minute.

The Liverpool centre-back was delighted with the win but admitted Klopp’s side would need to find cover for Robertson.

He explained: “It is a great evening. We knew it would be tough as they have a great team with fantastic players.

“We were unlucky on their equaliser but we got the job done and we’re into the last eight.

“It is very important and it feels amazing to score.

“We need to cover him [Andy Robertson – who misses the next game through suspension] but we will prepare and make sure everyone is ready.”

Liverpool will find out their quarter-final opponents on Friday morning when the draw takes place from 11am.

The Reds will be joined by Manchester United, Manchester City and Tottenham as four of the final eight teams are from the Premier League.

The likes of Barcelona and Juventus are also in the competition.

Ajax and Porto are the two teams sides will be keen to face and perhaps would not have expected to reach the quarter-finals.
