Tottenham won’t be able to make it to the UCL

Liverpool, led by head coach Jurgen Klopp, drew 3-3 against Aston Villa at 2023-24 PL 37R at Birmingham Villa Park in England on the 14th (Korea time).

Liverpool led 2-1 in the first half on the day, including the first goal scored in just two minutes, and 3-1 in just three minutes from the start of the second half, with just shy of victory. However, Liverpool lost two goals with five minutes left before the end of regular time, resulting in a draw like a defeat.

Klopp expressed his feelings about the draw on the day, saying, “I’m not disappointed at all. I think I should, but that’s not how I feel today. I’m rather happy.”

There was also a dagger for Tottenham.

“Of course, we have confirmed our entry into the UCL, but going to the Champions League will probably be everything that Villa cannot give up. It is really positive that we took the lead against Aston Villa under Coach Unai Emery, who has a great teamwork,” he said, adding that he weighed on Aston Villa’s move to the UCL.

In other words, Tottenham’s chances of entering the UCL, which competes with Villa, are relatively low.

Klopp, who continued to explain the 3-1 lead, cited laxity and fatigue as factors for the draw.

“We get a little tired, the organization gets a little loose, that’s what we did. We made a 3-2 mistake, and straight away Villa took the opportunity again. They hit the point (additional goal).”

In addition, he expressed his sorry for the poor performance of third place than expected.

“I know (the fans) don’t want to hear it, but we have become the third-best team in the league this season. We have changed a lot and improved along the way. I really like the team. Even though we didn’t keep the championship race to the end, we laid a good foundation for the future,” he said, explaining that the season was more forward-looking than immediate results.

“I had a great time today. I still can’t believe it’s the last time or what it is, I know it’s the last time but it doesn’t. I was completely into the game, and I didn’t think for a moment whether it was my last away game or not,” he said in expressing his feelings about the last away game.

“The away fans are always wild. We asked them to support us at home-away over the years. What a wonderful, lovely relationship! I always try to express my gratitude, and I hope today’s game against Liverpool confirmed some of this,” he said, expressing his gratitude and love for the fans.

Meanwhile, at the end of the interview, there was also a story about Andy Robertson. Klopp summed up the situation, saying that Robertson’s return is not far off, saying, “I met him this morning and he said he was ready to train from tomorrow.”

Klopp’s last match will be against Hwang Hee-chan’s Wolverhampton at Anfield on the 19th. After the match, Klopp’s nine-year-old partnership with Liverpool, who was the longest in his managerial history, will end.
