What Jurgen Klopp said after Adrian's Southampton howler


Jurgen Klopp has revealed what he told Adrian after the goalkeeper's blunder against Southampton

Lfc rumour
Adrian had been a doubt to play at St Mary's because of an injury suffered when a fan knocked him over while celebrating Liverpool's Super Cup win on Wednesday night, but passed a late fitness test to start ahead of 35-year-old stand-in Andy Lonergan.

The Liverpool second choice was the Reds' hero in their Super Cup triumph against Chelsea at Istanbul last Wednesday but was at fault against Southampton.

After receiving a back pass from Virgil van Dijk, Adrian gifted Danny Ings a pass to score while trying to find one of the Reds' back-four.

Klopp may have been in less jovial mood had the former Reds striker made a good connection on a late Yan Valery cross, with the Saints man missing the glorious chance to level in a 2-2 draw.

The Liverpool boss joked with Adrian after the blunder, he revealed after the match.

"Minute 83, Adrian thought, 'I've played really well so I have to make a mistake like Ali did and keep the game a little bit open'," Klopp jokingly said.

"I said to him, 'Finally, it arrived, welcome'. Ali did the same, obviously it is a goalie thing at Liverpool. I have no problem with that as long as we win the game.

"Adrian had a swollen ankle, we played too many balls back to him in that period. I was happy with everything he did today, all the saves he made, all the other stuff.
