He said ” it’s was disgusting to see him play that way, he played a very bad game missed chances was exposed through out the whole game. I don’t think football is for him”. Jurgen Klopp lashes out and says says 25-year-old Liverpool player was ‘poor’ v Atalanta.


Liverpool suffered a significant setback in their Europa League quarter-final clash against Atalanta, delivering what could be considered their poorest performance of the season. Despite playing at Anfield, a venue typically associated with formidable displays from Jurgen Klopp’s side, they succumbed to a 3-0 defeat.

Before the match, the consensus would have been that Liverpool had a favorable opportunity, playing against an Atalanta squad whose recent form in Serie A had been inconsistent. However, the reality unfolded quite differently as Atalanta managed to exploit vulnerabilities in Liverpool’s defense, capitalizing on multiple occasions to secure an unanswered three-goal victory.

The opening goal came in the 38th minute when Gianluca Scamacca capitalized on a Davide Zappacosta delivery, slotting the ball past Liverpool goalkeeper Caoimhin Kelleher. Criticism was directed towards Kelleher, with pundit Jay Bothroyd highlighting his error, suggesting it was a significant mistake, especially considering the absence of regular goalkeeper Alisson due to injury.

Despite his earlier error, Kelleher managed to partially redeem himself with a crucial save towards the end of the first half, denying Teun Koopmeiners a goal-scoring opportunity. Bothroyd acknowledged Kelleher’s improvement with this save, praising his ability to close down the angle effectively.

However, Liverpool’s defensive struggles continued into the second half, with Scamacca doubling Atalanta’s lead in the 60th minute with another clinical finish. The Liverpool defense appeared disjointed, affording Scamacca far too much space and time to execute his shot.

The situation deteriorated further for Liverpool as Mario Pasalic capitalized on Ederson’s strike in the 84th minute, tapping the ball into the net with the home defense seemingly static. While Kelleher was not entirely at fault for the second goal, questions arose regarding his positioning and whether he could have done more to prevent the initial shot from Ederson.

Overall, Liverpool’s performance against Atalanta was disappointing and fell short of expectations, especially considering their home advantage. Defensive lapses, combined with Atalanta’s clinical finishing, ultimately led to a comprehensive defeat for Klopp’s side.
