Mini Reds delight Klopp – ENGLISH FOOTBALL

by: Adam Smith


Even without its manager and champions League heroes, Liverpool reached the quarter-finals of the FA Cup. Jurgen Klopp did everything right once again.

Where Jurgen Klopp was really during his Mini Reds’ memorable game on Tuesday night remained open. Probably at home on the couch. At least not at Anfield Road. But Kloppo was not gone. “He sent us a message at half-time and also an immediately after,” Klopp assistant Neil Critchley said after Liverpool’s 1-0 draw in the FA Cup replay against third-level Shrewsbury Town.

And when the entry into the quarter-finals was perfect, Klopp could be heard again. “I’m delighted,” said the former Dortmund manager. The manager of the Premier League’s sovereign leader’s team had once again done everything right with his rigorous renunciation. In order to give his star team a recovery period of almost two weeks in the face of extreme pressures in the Championship and the Champions League, Klopp has left the “big” and “small” running.
