Liverpool star Thiago ‘can’t explain’ disappointment and tells teammates they must deserve Champions League qualification

Liverpool star Thiago was unable to fully express his disappointment after they dropped two points against Newcastle.

The Reds looked on course for a 1-0 win on Saturday afternoon, despite a host of missed chances but in injury time they were made to pay.

Jurgen Klopp’s side had survived a scare when Callum Wilson saw a goal chalked off for handball, following a VAR intervention.

However, Arsenal loanee Joe Willock stepped up late on to net a leveller for the Magpies, helping their battle against relegation.

Klopp admitted his side had failed to fully grasp the ‘present’ VAR had given them, while admitting his side hadn’t shown enough fight in the match.

He claimed their missed chances should have intensified their efforts to double their tally.

Instead, the Reds couldn’t assert themselves and allowed Newcastle to peg them back and dent their Champions League qualification hopes.

Liverpool midfielder Thiago echoed his manager’s comments, telling BT Sport after the Anfield clash: “We have no words to explain the disappointment we have.


“The will to win, the desire to win is a very big part of the competition. We had a lot of chances to win in the first half.

“We tried to play our game. That was the key today. It worked very good in the first half, we created many spaces and created a lot of chances.

“It doesn’t change that we want to win and want to be in the Champions League but for that we have to deserve to be there.”
