A number of Liverpool fans have been reacting on social media to Jurgen Klopp’s verdict on the Reds’ performance against Genk in the Champions League, after watching his side pick up a 2-1 win.
The Anfield outfit had lost their opening Group Stage tie of the term away to Napoli, but have since put three-straight wins on the board to move above their Group E rival and have the knockout stages firmly in their sights.
Goals from Georginio Wijnaldum and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain ensured Liverpool were able to record their third win of the this term’s tournament, and prolong their unbeaten stretch across all competitions that now runs to 11 games.

Klopp’s men were not given an easy ride on Tuesday, though, as Genk fought back to equalise minutes before the break, as the Reds lacked their usual intensity following a number of changes to the starting line-up.
Despite that, Liverpool managed to record 28 shots against Genk having controlled 71.5% of the possession, although only eight were on target, per WhoScored data.
But a win is a win, and that was the main thing for Klopp.
“The most important thing is that we won and nobody is injured,” the German told reporters after the game, according to quotes recorded by Liverpool’s official website.
“The result is because we didn’t finish our situations off like we should and could have done.
“The longer the game goes the more the momentum goes to the other team, if you don’t finish your situations off. I think Ali[sson] had to make one save, once or twice we didn’t really push up in the last line, which meant they could play a pass into the box, but nothing happened. That was the game – ‘job done’ is the headline from the game, pretty much.”
Here are some of the reactions shared to his comments, as fans seemingly loved Klopp’s view that the most important thing was the win, regardless of how it came about…
100%. Shows how far we’ve come under Jurgen that there’s grumbling about the game. Top of both leagues. Up the Reds
