What Jurgen Klopp Told Daniel Sturridge That Inspired Him To Score Against PSG

Jurgen Klopp has revealed he told Daniel Sturridge before kick-off: I’ve never seen you so good.

The former England striker headed Liverpool’s opener against Paris Saint-Germain at Anfield on Tuesday night.

He was handed a start after Roberto Firmino suffered an eye injury against Tottenham on Saturday.

And Sturridge repaid his manager’s faith when he nodded in on the half-hour mark.

And Klopp said: “Daniel had a super game. I said to him before I had never seen him as good as he is now. He used that fitness and was all over the park.”

James Milner’s penalty doubled the home side’s advantage before Thomas Meunier pulled one back before the break.

Kylian Mbappe levelled the score with seven minutes remaining before Firmino scored the winner in stoppage time.

Klopp added: “It was really important we started the game like before, so strong with the ball.

“We expected their changes, which makes defending a bit more difficult, but we did really well and closed many gaps.

“We scored wonderful goals, they were thunderballs.

“Their second goal was unnecessary, but that is their quality.

“But a 3-2 is exactly what people would have expected, both teams are not really (going) to defend over 90 minutes.

“So we used the situation one more time and had one more chance. We deserved the three points.”
