Liverpool: Fans criticise Jurgen Klopp’s choice of substitutions during Atletico defeat

Liverpool: Fans criticise Jurgen Klopp’s choice of substitutions during Atletico defeat

Some Liverpool fans took exception to some tactical decisions that manager Jurgen Klopp made during his side’s 1-0 defeat against Atletico Madrid on Tuesday.

The Reds fell to a fourth-minute goal from Saul Niguez as the La Liga outfit took the early initiative in the Champions League last-16 affair. After facing a resolute and resilient side led by Diego Simeone, the German tactician’s team failed to register a single shot on target at the Wanda Metropolitano, where Liverpool famously won their sixth European crown last June.

Klopp decided to bring on Divock Origi at half-time in place of Sadio Mane, who was on a booking, and James Milner to take over from Jordan Henderson who had picked up a knock. This meant leaving £52.75m signing Naby Keita and their latest capture Takumi Minamino on the bench.

Unsurprisingly, supporters were not impressed and made their feelings clear on social media. One fan said that it was one of Jurgen Klopp’s poorest showings by bringing on Milner instead of Keita or Minamino.
