Klopp praises Szoboszlai and recognizes what ‘everyone’ is attempting to do to the new hero.

Jurgen Klopp praised Dominik Szoboszlai after the summer signing came off the bench to inspire Liverpool to a 3-1 Carabao Cup win over Leicester City at Anfield.

JurgenKlopp praised Dominik Szoboszlai after his superb goal helped secure Liverpool’s place in the fourth round of the Carabao Cup.

TheReds fell behind early on through a Kasey McAteer goal, but fought back after the break to claim a 3-1 victory and set up a trip to AFC Bournemouth.

Cody Gakpo had equalized for Klopp’s men before Szoboszlai came off the bench and scored a superb piledriver in front of the Kop.

DiogoJota wrapped up the victory late on with a cheeky shot after a Jarell Quansah goal, but Szoboszlai’s strike was the main talking point for a routine victory for Liverpool, with Klopp praising the 22-year-old’s performance at Anfield after the final whistle.

“It’s been so long since he came here that I forgot what I was thinking when he came,” the German told reporters.

“From the first minute of training, it was quite impressive.It’s like that.

“He’s a really great guy. A top guy.

The easiest way to get into the team all the way to the locker room and things like that.

Very natural and confident boy.

Ithelps, but it also takes a lot of work and you saw that today.

Up“He arrived and experienced two very difficult situations.

Fromthat point on, he was just in the game.

“I don’t need to tell him to shoot.

He knows better than me that he has a pretty good skill.

Thenext one, slightly further away, was another grenade.

“You can see that in Premier League games everyone tries to block him.

That’swhy he hasn’t passed yet.

If he can pass, the ball is likely in.

“But super goals.

I think it was like this: Wataru (Endo) passed the ball and at that moment there was no midfielder, no defender to stop him.

“That’s why it’s so important after winning the ball to try to make the first pass forward or at least have a forward-looking idea.

Thathelped a lot there.

“He really enjoys being here and obviously the people appreciate it too.

He can continue for a long time”.
