Klopp Delighted With Reds Performance as Liverpool Make History Against Maribor

Publish date:

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was overjoyed with his side's performance following their historic 7-0 victory against Maribor in the Champions League on Tuesday.

It is the biggest away win recorded by an English team in the history of the European competition, with Klopp hoping the level of performance can be taken into their upcoming Premier League fixtures.

Speaking post-match, reported from Sky Sports, Klopp stated: It will give the players a lot of confidence.

"The boys deserved that. The only problem recently was how to explain why we didn't win. That has been the most difficult thing about our recent games. When you don't score it is a challenge to stay confident but we will try to use this result now."


Asked about whether he knew the record his side had set, Klopp replied: "I was told about the record after the game and I didn't know about it.

"The wonderful history of this club can feel like a back-pack at times so it is nice to write our own good piece of the history. It will be difficult to beat that record. It is quite rare to win 7-0 but it showed we did unbelievably well."

Liverpool will now turn their attention to their Premier League encounter against Tottenham this Sunday at Wembley. Spurs drew 1-1 with defending champions Real Madrid on Tuesday, with Klopp already casting his mind towards the weekend.

He said: "The next game is Tottenham so it's pretty likely it will not be a similar result. We have five days to recover and prepare and we are looking forward to it."
