Jurgen Klopp blames Ozan Kabak misunderstanding for Alisson error during defeat

Jurgen Klopp believes new a lack of communication between new signing Ozan Kabak and goalkeeper Alisson was at fault for Leicester’s second goal at the King Power Stadium.

The Foxes came from behind to beat the reigning Premier League champions with Alisson colliding with the new centre back.

Many were quick to blame the goalkeeper after his pair of errors against Manchester City last weekend.

Though with Kabak on debut, Klopp believes it was a lack of understanding between the pair that led to Jamie Vardy being left with an empty net.

Klopp said: “The second goal is a misunderstanding which we spoke about before, we said we need to get used to each other.

“We were confident again, Ali was confident, he played a super game and made super saves and that’s all fine.

“But in that moment, maybe because of last week and who knows, he comes out, I didn’t hear him shouting and to be honest I’m not sure he said something or not.

“Ozan doesn’t not know in that moment, he doesn’t know him long enough, is he coming or is he not coming.

“That’s how it leads to the second goal and then that’s it.”

Mohamed Salah had given Liverpool a lead though Leicester fought back through James Maddison’s free kick.

Then came that Kabak-Alisson error before Harvey Barnes wrapped up the three points for Brendan Rodgers’ side.

Klopp added: “We were the clear dominant side. We played the football we wanted to play, we avoided their counter-attacks, we did pretty much everything we had to do.
