Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is having a hard time believing the Manchester United boss’s disappointment after draw with Liverpool

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp ‘couldn’t believe’ when informed about United boss Erik ten Hag‘s disappointment claim after the draw against Liverpool.

Despite needing a last-minute penalty, which Mohamed Salah converted following a foul on Harvey Elliott, the Reds will believe they should have grabbed all three points from Old Trafford.

United made an impact in the second half, but Liverpool still fired 28 shots and enjoyed 63% possession. The stats clearly reflect how possible it was for Liverpool to grab the three points but yet they could only draw.

Klopp’s confusion over Ten Hag’s surprising remark

In a post-match interview, it was bewildering for Klopp to hear that both teams were disappointed with the outcome. A reporter inquired (h/t Mirror):

 “Jurgen I sense a feeling of disappointment, actually in both camps, but more from your side, how is the assessment of the game?”

It was a very shocking comment from Klopp about the other team’s disappointment in the 2-2 draw. The German coach, who is leaving Anfield at the end of the season, began his response by recognizing the point.

 “United is disappointed? That’s interesting. Good”

Klopp’s confusion over United’s reaction is understandable. Ten Hag’s team has been extremely fortunate that opponents have not taken more opportunities against them this season; otherwise, his club would be far worse off than it is.

Liverpool now stands in second place in the Premier League, sharing the same points as Arsenal but with a significantly lower goal difference compared to them. The Reds have a very positive chance to grab the Premier League title but it will not be possible with their current performance.

Liverpool should have made United pay, and they are not the only team that has squandered such opportunities. It’s incredible that Ten Hag can claim to be proud of his team’s achievements right now. Instead of being disappointed, Ten Hag should be thankful that it was only a draw that they had to bear.
