In the video, Klopp praises Thiago’s missile goal against Porto

Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp praised Thiago Alcantara’s rocket goal that gave his team vitality during their 2-0 victory over Porto in the Champions League on Wednesday.

Having already secured qualification for the Round of 16 earlier; Liverpool looked less powerful than usual and faltered in the first half before taking the lead with Thiago’s stunning low shot in the 52nd minute.

Mohamed Salah added the second goal with a decisive touch 20 minutes before the end at Anfield.

And because Salah used to score great goals, Klopp focused more on Tiago’s goal, saying, “There were more opportunities than these, but we scored an amazing goal from this situation.”

“Whoever watches Thiago in training knows he can do it, but despite his skill, he can’t shoot such a ball regularly. The timing was perfect honestly.”

“We needed some luck. Porto pressed and had some dangerous chances, but he didn’t score, while we scored two goals and controlled better in the second half so I’m really happy with the performance.”

Liverpool, third in the Premier League with 25 points from 12 matches, hosts 13th-placed Southampton on Saturday.
