Klopp: Reds lost faith in second half.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp says his manne lost faith during the Europa League final.

But he is adamant his players will rise from the ashes of their 3-1 defeat to Sevilla and come back stronger.

The Reds took the lead in Wednesday night’s final through striker Daniel Sturridge.

But after dominating the first half, they were stunned by a Kevin Gamiero leveller and a Coke brace as Sevilla completed a third straight title win.

However, Klopp believes that even though the Reds will not be playing in Europe next season, this will be the turning point in his tenure.

The German says: “It was obvious the first goal of Sevilla had a big influence on our own game. In this moment we lost faith in our style of play.

“Tomorrow, in a week or whatever, we will see it a little bit more clearly and then we will use this experience.

“That’s what we have to do.

“Now it’s clear we are not in a European competition next year, it means no football on a Thursday and it means we have time to train.

“We will use it and we will come back stronger, that’s for sure.

“You saw on the way to the final we had a few moments where we maybe over-performed – we were unbelievable, great and the boys showed what they are capable of, but then to have this consistency you need a little bit more time.

“They are still young and this was their first big final – unfortunately their second [losing] final of the season, but it was a big final and we will use this experience together.

Klopp adds: “Then someday everybody will say Basel was a very decisive moment for the wonderful future of Liverpool FC.”
