Klopp has his say on Moreno’s open-goal horror miss in Liverpool’s West Brom win

Date Posted,April 16, 2017

Jurgen Klopp has had his say on Alberto Moreno’s open-goal horror miss after he failed to double Liverpool’s lead in their 1-0 win over West Brom.

Baggies keeper Ben Foster abandoned his goal in the dying embers of Sunday’s game as the home team searched for that illusive equaliser.

But a James McClean mistake gifted Moreno the ball, and he charged at the open-goal, looking certain to hit the back of the net.

To be fair to the defender, he was a long way out, but he failed to hit the target with his effort, sparing both McClean and Foster’s blushes.

Klopp was asked what he made of the miss following the fixture, but refused to criticise the 24-year-old who should have perhaps passed to a teammate.

“I told him after the game I know everyone thinks you could have played through Daniel Sturridge.

“I’m not sure that he knew that he couldn’t, because it would have been offside, but maybe there wasn’t that option, which I didn’t really know.

“I’ll have to watch it again. But it’s completely normal in a situation like this, you think you have to do it.

“He had a few difficult weeks in the last few weeks, the last week was really good and so he deserved a few minutes. He’s a good boy.

“I would have been happy for him actually if he would have scored this goal, but excitement until the end, always when we are involved, so all good.”
