- Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp is angry with winger Xherdan Shaqiri
- The player did not do what Klopp expected of him against Chelsea
- Chelsea beat Liverpool 2-1 on Wednesday night in the Carabao Cup
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is furious with winger Xherdan Shaqiri after wasting a free-kick which could have helped his side in their defeat against Chelsea in the Carabao Cup.
Chelsea came back from a goal down at Anfield with Emerson and Eden Hazard scoring the two goals that handed Liverpool their first defeat of the season.
But it was Shaqiri who appeared to come under fire at the final whistle as Jurgen Klopp marched over towards the Swiss winger.
The former Dortmund manager was seen shouting and gesticulating as Shaqiri tried to plead his case after the defeat against Chelsea at Anfield.
Klopp explained that he was angry because he wanted Shaqiri to swing it in with his left foot in order to try and pick out Egypt international Mohamed Salah.
“I spoke up about a free kick - the last one. Mo Salah was wide. The whole bunch of players were where we shot the ball.
“If he could have sent Mo in one on one it might not have been not too bad. But maybe it was loud and the boys couldn’t hear me.
“It might not make much sense but what I said was about the free kick - nothing else,'' Klopp explained according to UK Sun.
Earlier, NAIJ.com had reported how Chelsea qualified for the next round of the 2018 Carabao Cup after coming from behind to beat Premier League rivals Liverpool 2-1 on Wednesday night, September 26.
Daniel Sturridge scored the first goal of the match for Liverpool, but two late goals netted by Emerson and Eden Hazard gave the Blues the victory at Anfield.
