Jurgen Klopp Impressed by Liverpool’s “Worldies” in 4-3 Victory over Fulham
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp expressed his astonishment at the number of exceptional goals, or “worldies,” scored during Liverpool’s thrilling 4-3 win against Fulham. One standout performance came from substitute Wataru Endo, whose cameo appearance proved crucial to the team’s success.
A Rollercoaster Match
Initially, it seemed like Liverpool would easily secure a victory after Trent Alexander-Arnold’s free-kick resulted in an own goal by Bernd Leno. However, the game took a dramatic turn as Fulham fought back and took a 3-2 lead with a late header from Bobby De Cordova-Reid.
Fortunately, Liverpool quickly responded with two rapid-fire goals from Endo and Alexander-Arnold, securing all three points. Each of the four goals scored by Liverpool, including a standout strike from Alexis Mac Allister, showcased exceptional quality.
Speaking to reporters after the match, Klopp expressed his disbelief at the level of skill displayed by his players. He stated, “I’ve seen a few games, but I’ve never seen a game with that amount of worldies. It was truly competitive.”
Klopp reserved special praise for Wataru Endo, highlighting his important contribution to the team’s victory. The manager commended Endo’s performance, stating that he won decisive challenges, showcased excellent passing, and scored a top-quality goal.
Endo’s Progress in the Premier League
Endo’s impressive display against Fulham followed his first Premier League goal and a strong performance in the Europa League against LASK. In an interview before the Fulham match, Endo admitted that he found the Premier League to be harder than expected but expressed his determination to improve and grow as a player.
With his recent performances, there is a high possibility that Endo will earn a starting spot in Liverpool’s upcoming Premier League match against Sheffield United.
