Team manager Jürgen Klopp and FC Liverpool missed the next win in the second pre-season test against second division Greuther Fürth – but at least a disgrace was averted late. In camera, the top Premier League team did not get past the 4: 4 (1: 0) against the Franconians in Villingen-Schwenningen.
“It’s not so cool that there aren’t any fans here. But that way I can hear the boys’ coaching, that’s super important,” Klopp emphasized before the game, which started 15 minutes late due to a storm.
The 56-year-old probably didn’t like the performance of his team from the middle of the second half. At first, after goals from Luis Diaz (22′) and a brace from Darwin Nunez, each with preliminary work from his strike partner Mohamed Salah (50’/59′), everything looked like a confident victory for the Reds.
However, Fürth kept at it during his dress rehearsal for the start of the second division at the weekend, and Julian Green equalized shortly after the break (47′). Lukas Petkov (67th) and twice Armindo Sieb (74th/77th) even turned the game in favor of the outsider, Salah prevented the defeat shortly before the final whistle (89th).
