It was the scene that began Liverpool’s 3:1 victory at West Ham United: Curtis Jones, who had just been replaced, played in the penalty room with Mohamed Salah, who lowered the ball to 1:0.
While Salah was cheering the goal with his teammates in the square, James Milner, who was already on his way to the cabin, to Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp and fell into the arms of the football teacher laughing. The caretakers also had fun after the goal.
Milner had acted irritated during his change shortly before speaking to Klopp on the side line with a questionable expression of face. After the game, the coach clarified the situation. He said to me, “If a hit comes right after his switch, he understands my decision,” the visibly satisfied knock after the whistle at the station “Sky Sports”.
Another hit by Salah and a goal by Georginio Wijnaldum made everything clear to the English football champion, who improved in the table to third place and has probably ended his short crisis definitively. “”What are you talking about? These guys are a really great group,”said the 53-year-old. They are not happy if they are not successful, if they do not win, but they always have the right attitude.”
