Jurgen Klopp hopes Rodger Brendan helps Leicester City defender Wout Faes after difficult situation as the Foxes boss feels sorry for the defender.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says he feel sorry for Leicester City defender Wout Faes following his own goals against the Reds.

Liverpool went behind in the early minutes of the first half of the game but errors from Faes brought Klopp’s men back into the game.

Speaking about the error made by the defender Klopp said:  “I had that once in my career – that a player scored two own goals. I really feel for him. Honestly, because it was absolutely unlucky.

“The first, how can it be more unlucky? And the second one, if you have ever played football, you go full speed in that situation, direction of the goal, you would expect the ball goes in.

“That’s what your brain tells you and in the moment when you realise it is not going in, it is going to the post, you can’t react anymore. These things happen. Yes, of course I feel sympathy – there is absolutely space for that, but whatever I say now will not change it. The boy will get through this, obviously, and Brendan [Rodgers] will help with that and everything will be fine.”

Speaking more thoroughly on Faes’ two own goals, Rodgers sympathised with his unfortunate situation, especially given his form in the lead up to this game since joining the Club in the summer.

Rodgers continued: “I’m bitterly disappointed for him because he’s been brilliant since he’s been with us. He’s been away at the World Cup but hasn’t played a great deal so it’s going to take a game or two to get up to speed and get his rhythm back.

“The first one, I doubt you’ll see another own goal like that again. It’s just unfortunate because it was coming straight into Wardy’s (Danny Ward’s) hands. The second one, we should do better earlier on – it should never get to that point where he’s challenging it coming off the post. But he scored the two and he’s strong enough to deal with that.”
