Liverpool manager devastated after penalty shoot-out loss in League Cup final

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has revealed that him and his side are extremely disappointed after their penalty shoot-out loss to Manchester City in the Capital One Cup final, according to reports from the Mirror.

The Citizens went into the lead through Fernandinho early in the second half, but the Reds pulled a goal back seven minutes from full time via a Philippe Coutinho strike.

The two teams battled it out in extra time to no avail, with Divock Origi having a close-range header saved by Sky Blues goalkeeper Willy Caballero to push the game to penalties.

And the Argentina shot-stopper was the hero once again in the shoot-out, saving three penalties before Yaya Toure scored the winning spot kick.

After the game, Klopp couldn’t hide his frustration, admitting that the team are devastated for not ending their almost 10-year trophy drought.

Klopp said: “Do you think I go home, close the door and stay there for four weeks? You have to feel a defeat, you can’t say it’s not important.

“You know you can fall down, but you have to stand up. Only silly idiots stay on the floor and wait for the next defeat to come along and we will strike back, 100 per cent.

“Tonight we feel rubbish, s***, but if we carry on and work really hard there is light at the end of the tunnel.”

Liverpool will need to pick themselves back up quickly, with Klopp’s men facing City once again in a league game on Wednesday.
