 Exclusive: Jurgen Klopp heaps praise on Divock Origi after Liverpool beat AC Milan and Jordan Henderson delighted with team reaction in Anfield thriller


Jurgen Klopp was a happy man after Liverpool’s exhilarating win against AC Milan in the Champions League but says the team got ‘carried away’.

Jordan Henderson scored a superb goal and sealed a fine win for Liverpool as they came from behind to secure maximum points at Anfield.

Speaking to BT Sport after the match, Klopp highlighted the performance of Divock Origi who started his first match since January and his team’s overall effort.

“We start incredibly well. We played a super game. Super intense game, and football wise too.

“We got a bit carried away by our own football. We didn’t keep it that simple. It is the football I want to see to be honest, in most of the moments.

“He [Origi] played a super game. He had cramps then. People forget how good he is.

“In the summer transfer window, we thought there’d be a good offer. People don’t watch football enough.”

Klopp’s words were echoed by his captain Henderson who could not believe how long ago his last goal was in Europe.

He said: “It had been a while! It wasn’t Ludogrets [2014] was it? Was it?!”

A long time waiting but the skipper was delighted with the win although he did say there are things to ‘learn’.

Henderson added: “Started the game really well. Scored, got the penalty and then the last ten or fifteen minutes of the first half we had that spell where we found it difficult.

It was a long time coming but certainly worth the wait as Henderson scored his first goal in Europe since 2014

“They scored two goals and we went into half-time a little bit disappointed that we were trailing.

“I thought the lads reacted really well, come out second half started the game again really well and we got our rewards and got back in the game and got the winner.

“So overall delighted and we’ve got to learn from that ten-fifteen minute spell as well.”
