Jurgen Klopp vows Liverpool will squeeze ‘everything’ out of ‘strange’ season after Champions League exit
The German watched his side perform tamely away at Real Madrid and was unable to do much to stop the European champions being knocked out of the Champions League.
Despite choosing a four-man front, the Reds struggled to assert themselves at the Santiago Bernabeu and Karim Benzema’s goal sealed a 6-2 aggregate win.
Where Liverpool was the model of consistency last season, this time it has proved anything but.
They followed a record-breaking 7-0 win over Manchester United with a dismal away defeat at Bournemouth and face a battle for a place in the top four of the Premier League.
Klopp’s side are six points behind fourth-placed Tottenham and play against Manchester City, Chelsea and Arsenal after the international break.
After the defeat in the Spanish capital, the Liverpool manager said: “Our job is to get everything we can out of this season – it’s a strange one.
“We prepared for a special performance, but we couldn’t put it on the pitch tonight. No one thinks about how Liverpool didn’t go through. That’s the way it is and we have to accept that.”
