Klopp’s comments on the youth players

When asked if the youth will gain from the experiences on tour, Klopp responded to the media: “…But, of course, it’s a good experience, something they did really well in so many moments”.

He continued: “In training they are fantastic, but today they saw as well, like others, that if you make a mistake on this level it’s pretty likely that the opponent will score.”
