Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp admits it feels “sh*t” to lose a cup final but has told fans not to worry as they will improve next season.
Klopp clearly needs to make changes in the summer, but said on Sunday night: “You have to feel a defeat. You cannot say ‘I don’t care, it’s not important’.
“If I was allowed to say sh*t I would say sh*t but I’m not allowed! It was important and we lost, so that feels not too good.
“You always have to strike back. We can say all of these things, but you know you can fall down and then you have to stand up.
“That’s the truth, but it’s completely normal – only silly idiots stay on the floor and wait for the next defeat. Of course we will strike back – 100 percent. We struck back today in the game.
“But for this and the next time we are in a final, you have to feel how it is when you lose.
“It’s really not the best moment, but that is all.
“Tomorrow morning we can change everything, but now we can change nothing. That’s the big difference.
“But don’t worry, we will go on, we will get better and that’s how it is. We have to go the hard way—that’s how it is.
