Jürgen Klopp has joked about Wataru Endo’s confusing arrival at Liverpool.

“He doesn’t know what we’re doing,” Klopp laughed in an interview after the Reds’ 2-1 win over Newcastle United on Monday (Aug. 28).

Endo became a Liverpool player on Aug. 18. The Reds were in desperate need of a defensive midfielder after Fabinho left for Al Ittihad in Saudi Arabia. After losing two of their top targets, Moises Khedive and Romeo Rabia, to Chelsea, the Reds rushed to sign the former Stuttgart defensive midfielder.

Endo quickly made his English Premier League (EPL) debut. He came on in the 17th minute of the second half against Bournemouth on Sept. 19, replacing Kodi Hakpo. The substitution was to replace Alexis McAllister, who was sent off early in the second half. With the Reds playing with 10 men, Endo focused on protecting the back four with steady play, and Liverpool were able to hold on for a 3-1 win. 카지노사이트

Against Newcastle, he made his EPL starting debut. With McAllister and Sobosler lining up alongside Dominique, Endo had a mediocre performance and lasted 58 minutes on the pitch.

But then another man was sent off. In the 28th minute, Virgil Pandike tripped an incoming Alexander Isaac, and the referee immediately produced a red card. After playing 28 minutes with the full team, Endo was forced to play with 10 men for 35 minutes and was replaced in the 58th minute by the more attack-minded Harvey Elliott.

Klopp joked about consoling Endo, who hadn’t had a chance to play in two games. “Disaster struck again for Endo. He doesn’t know what we are doing. I think he feels he’s fooling himself,” he laughed.

“Maybe he thinks it’s a tactical thing (playing with 10 men),” the journalist countered, to which Klopp laughed, “I’m sure he does.”
