Jurgen Klopp makes bizarre claim about Liverpool’s win over Newcastle

Jurgen Klopp has made an interesting admission about Liverpool’s win at the weekend.

Liverpool faced off with Newcastle United on Sunday afternoon.

An early mistake from Trent Alexander-Arnold handed Newcastle the lead through Anthony Gordon before Virgil van Dijk was shown a straight red card in the first half.

However, Newcastle failed to add a second goal despite many chances and were punished by Darwin Nunez, who came off the bench to score two and win the match.

After the game, Jurgen Klopp has suggested the win ranked higher than Liverpool’s Champions League semi-final comeback vs FC Barcelona.

Asked after the match where the win ranks, Klopp told Sky Sports: “If it was one of my best victories as a coach? Certainly! It was more difficult than the Barcelona game because we were not at Anfield.

“Oh my god - how much I enjoyed that. At half-time I said if we can turn this it is something we can tell our grandkids. I see mine in 10 days so I can tell them.

“With 10 men, in my history with over 1000 [matches] I never had something like that in that way. Against a team like Newcastle. In an atmosphere like that.”
