Mentor “Liverpool” Jurgen Klopp gave vent to his emotions after the match for the UEFA super Cup in Istanbul, where his team in the penalty shootout took precedence over “Chelsea” — 5:4 (game time — 2:2).
The German specialist, who has spent the 800th match in his coaching career, was delighted with the game 32-year-old Spanish goalkeeper Adrian Castillo (the main goalkeeper of “Liverpool” Alisson injured), who in “the lottery” retorted the decisive penalty and won the first trophy in his career.
“What a story! He coped with the nerves. He’s already making noise in the locker room. I don’t think he won a lot in my life, so it’s great to win today. Adrian, like his counterpart from Chelsea, made some incredible saves. I’m very happy for him”, — quotes Jurgen Klopp BBC.
