Premier League – big gesture, big sport

Liverpool (dpa) – After an emotional night of football, the emotional states of Jurgen Klopp and Ralph Rangnick were far from each other.

Liverpool boss Klopp is on his way to winning four trophies after the furious 4-0 win and said proudly: “It was a really good evening for everyone who has the heart of Liverpool.” At Rangnick, whose long-awaited Champions League qualification with Manchester United went far after bankruptcy, it looked almost bitter. “It’s embarrassing, frustrating and insulting,” he said. United had already lost the first leg in Manchester with a score of 0:5.

Spectators show their sympathy in the stadium

Far from all the sporting action, there was a touching moment at Anfield early in the evening. Fans of both teams applauded for Cristiano Ronaldo for 60 seconds in the seventh minute of the match, in an attempt to pay their respects to the Portuguese soccer star. This is how the fans expressed their support for Ronaldo and his partner Georgina Rodriguez after the severe blow of fate.

“That’s exactly what football should be – regardless of all the competition at this point,” Klopp said. “Only one thing is important and it’s a really great show.” The 37-year-old is mourning the loss of their son along with his partner. The wording in a statement indicates that he did not survive the birth of twins. “Only the birth of our baby girl gives us the strength to have some hope and joy in this moment,” the statement read. “It’s the worst that could happen,” said coach Rangnick.

The Reds continue with a double chance

The human tragedy that surrounded Ronaldo, who was not present at the match, comes at a time when things are difficult for United on a sporting level. For Liverpool, who reached the Champions League semi-finals, I was just a sparring partner on Tuesday. Luis Diaz (the fifth minute) and the two-goal Mohamed Salah (22/85) and Sadio Mane (68) scored for the Reds, who still have chances of winning four titles – four -.

“It’s also an exceptional situation because Manchester United are not in a good mood and more or less played without the usual midfield,” Klopp said. United’s Daily Mail summed up: “They weren’t beaten here, they were thrown away.” The Manchester Evening News featured “Liverpool’s best team in decades” and “Manchester United’s worst team in decades”.

Paul Pogba’s injury aggravates the situation for the former first division winner. “He pulled his calf muscle,” Rangnick said. “I’m afraid he won’t be available against Arsenal or Chelsea.” Pogba had to leave the field after only ten minutes.

Rangnick: Liverpool have six years ahead of us

The 63-year-old has made it clear how much he needs to change in Manchester so he can play at Liverpool’s level again in the future. “You just have to accept that they had a six-year lead. When Jurgen Klopp came in and all the changes were made, he took the club – and the city – to a whole new level. This should also happen here in the coming years in the transfer windows,” warned Rangnick, who will step down As temporary coach after the season and then works as a consultant for United. For Rangnick, it was clear that “six, seven, eight, maybe ten new players” had to turn up.

According to media reports, his successor will be Dutchman Erik ten Hag. According to the newspaper, “The Guardian”, Ten Hag is scheduled to receive a three-year contract with the option of an additional season and to make a final decision on transfers with the club’s management. In addition, his former club, Ajax Amsterdam, is supposed to receive a transfer fee of €2 million.
