    Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has defended his tetchy interview in the aftermath of the Reds’ 4-0 loss to Manchester City.

    Liverpool were thrashed by Manchester City on Thursday in their first match since securing the Premier League title.

    It was a sobering night for the newly-crowned champions but, with a 20-point lead at the top of the table, it had no damaging impact.

    However, Klopp was still worked up going into his post-match interview with the line of questioning from Sky Sports’ Geoff Shreeves not doing anything to cheer him up.

    An irritable Klopp said: “That’s the second time you ask about attitude.

    “If you want to lead this story that we are not focused in this game then do it, but I am pleased with the attitude of our team.”


    Speaking about his post-match interview, Klopp told journalists: “I was not in a good mood after the game. I was not in a good mood when I went to bed or when I woke up and then at Melwood I said: ‘I’m in a really good mood’.

    “Why? Because we changed things. If you lose a game, you lose a game. You never take it easy but we’ve had a bit more time to think about it.

    “The problem with post-match interviews it that you have a minute go inside and then you have all the interviews.

    “This game we lost in the key moments. In these moments City was better than us.

    “We gave a penalty away, we conceded after a throw in, we left Joe [Gomez] alone in a situation that no player should be alone in against [Raheem] Sterling.

    “We were good apart from that – good situations but we didn’t finish them off.”
