Champions League: What Klopp Said After Conceding Three Goals vs Salzburg

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has warned his team of the need to tighten up on the defensive front ahead of the visit of high-flying outfit Leicester City in the Premier League this weekend.

Klopp was visibly disappointed with the defensive display of his team during the Champions League clash with Austrian champions Red Bull Salzburg on Wednesday night.

Liverpool conceded three goals at home to the Austrians but they were still able to win 4-3 thereby boosting their hopes of qualifying for the knockout stage from Group E.

It was their first win in the Champions League this season at the second time of asking after they lost on Matchday 1.

Liverpool were beaten 2-0 by Italian Serie A giants Napoli in their first game this season through the goals from Dries Mertens (penalty) and substitute Fernando Llorente.

The loss to Napoli ensured that the Red Bull Salzburg game was in must-win territory for Liverpool.

The target of winning was achieved by Klopp and his players but the German tactician was not happy with the three goals conceded.

In his post-match press conference after the game, Klopp said that his team must improve defensively before the visit of Leicester City and their in-form striker Jamie Vardy.
