On Saturday, Liverpool won their first FA Cup since 2006 after another penalty shootout against Chelsea (0-0, 6-5) during which Sadio Mané missed his attempt. His coach Jürgen Klopp took the responsibility of that.
Mental work did not prevent Sadio Mané from missing a decisive first penalty after César Azpilicueta missed the Blues side. The Senegalese lost his duel against his compatriot from Chelsea, Edouard Mendy, and Jürgen Klopp thinks he has some responsibility for this failure.
“Sadio’s penalty is at least 50% my fault because you have to let the boys do what they want to do, but with Sadio I said to him: ‘He knows you perfectly, the goalkeeper, so do the exact opposite of what you’re going to do,” said the German.
“How many times in my life have I realized that sometimes it’s better to shut up! Well, finally we got out of it and this trophy means a lot to us. If the Premier League now seems out of reach, the Reds will have the opportunity to win a new one on May 28 against Real Madrid in the Champions League final.” , he added.
