Our Egyptian star, Mohamed Salah, played the match from the beginning, and performed well, scoring the game’s only goal in the 75th minute and was the star of the first meeting.
Klopp said during his statements after the match: “Salah played an exceptional match, an amazing performance, and the goal was universal.

The goal is very wonderful.”
He continued: “Salah was unlucky at the first opportunity, but he was very good with the ball and was a constant threat to City and made a very great effort, a match and an amazing performance by Salah.”
And about changing Salah: “Yes, I decided to change him and then he came and told me that he did not want to leave (joking). What is the explanation in your opinion? Yes, it is a technical error from the billboard. I was talking with Salah to provide instructions after Nunez entered.”
He continued: “Salah was sad when he saw his number on the change board, but I was surprised by the presence of his number on the board, as I did not decide to change it, it was just a mistake.”
Klopp admitted his mistake, saying: Yes, I made a mistake. I lost my temper at that moment, but let me say I’m sorry; How come that case was not a mistake [on City]? By what right were you not wrong? I wish someone had explained that to me.”
