Klopp not satisfied with performance

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was far from pleased with his side’s showing in their 0-0 draw against Augsburg in the Europa League last-32 first leg.

However, the German mentor did admit he was content with taking a draw away from home, which gives them the advantage for the second leg to be played at Anfield next week.

Klopp was hoping to see more from his side after they scored six against a very poor Aston Villa side on Sunday, but it was actually Augsburg who looked more likely to break the deadlock on the night.

Although the Reds did become the first visiting side to stop the Bundesliga side from scoring at home in European competition this season.

“To be realistic, the result is good in a Europa League game away from home,” he told BT Sport. “As for our performance, we had a few good moments and could have scored goals. But, as a complete game, I’m not satisfied.

“We fight for consistency. It’s a really hard fight – it’s a long way [to go].

“It’s the first leg, and we have the return at Anfield next week, which is good for us, but I’m not 100% happy with this game.”
