[OSEN=노진주 기자] Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp (54) raised the trophy and smiled and reflected on himself.
Liverpool won the ‘2022 FA Cup Final’ held at Wembley Stadium in London on the morning of the 15th (Korean time) on the morning of the 15th (Korean time), defeating Chelsea 6-5 on penalty shoot-out after 0-0 overtime to win the title.
With this, Liverpool achieved a ‘double’ feat after winning the Carabao Cup. Liverpool, who reached the Champions League final, are also aiming for a ‘quadruple’.
Victory and defeat were decided in a penalty shootout.
At the beginning of the penalty shootout, the weight of the victory leaned towards Liverpool. Chelsea’s second kicker, César Aspilicueta, missed. However, Liverpool’s fifth kicker Sadio Mane’s shot was blocked by the goalkeeper and the score was tied.
The last team that laughed was Liverpool. Liverpool took the lead as Chelsea’s 7th kicker Mason Count made a mistake while Liverpool’s Konstantinos Cimicas scored a goal.
After the match, Klopp took a moment to reflect.
“I’ve come to realize that it’s better to keep my mouth shut every now and then,” he said.
For that reason, he said, “I am responsible for 50% of Manet’s loss. I said, ‘Now that I know the direction of my ‘Senegal teammate’ Mendy (Chelsea goalkeeper), I want him to kick in a different direction.” It means you regret giving that advice. Mane’s shot was blocked and the most dizzying moment was coach Klopp, second only to the player himself.
