Liverpool's Jurgen Klopp hails Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah after Porto rout

15 Febrero 2018

"There's no greed in the team, there's nobody who is selfish".

This it did, not just by virtue of the impressive result, but the very nature of the performance.

Jurgen Klopp's fabulous front three impressed again on Wednesday, leading his side to a 5-0 thrashing of Porto in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie. "From there, it becomes even more difficult".

These struggles magnified the midfield void created by Coutinho's departure; but it also made clear quite why the Merseyside Reds were so keen to bring forward the arrival of midfielder Naby Keita.

All the players were brilliant today.

There is only so long that the supporters can be content with the intangible.

"With Mane you have the pace and directness, with Firmino you have the touch and hold-up play and securing the ball, and then you have Salah that gives you a bit of both and delivers goals".

Keane said that taking into the consideration the size and quality of the squads which Liverpool and Spurs both have, winning a trophy along with progression to the knockout stages of the Champions League should be their aim.

Ian Rush's 67th-minute strike gave the Reds a slender advantage as they jetted off to Portugal for the second-leg.

22 of the squad will host an open training session at Dubarry Park in Athlone, the home club of injured centre Robbie Henshaw.

"I enjoyed the fifth goal the most".

"Our mistakes led to Liverpool goals".

"If someone is in a better area, they look for each other".

However, the Liverpool boss said the tie is not yet over.

Liverpool return to the pitch with a Premier League clash against West Ham on Saturday.

He will need to match the Ivoirian's transformative influence, or course, as well as carry the team to the silverware that is arguably needed to validate Klopp's Liverpool tenure.
