Robertson reveals half-time talks inspiring Liverpool’s CL comeback

Thu 16 September 2021 | 5:27

Two late first-half goals from Rebic and Diaz canceled Liverpool’s 9th-minute opener as two sides headed to dressing rooms with Milan leading 2-1.

However, Salah and Henderson sealed a second-half comeback as 

Liverpool achieved a 3-2 home Champions League victory over Milan yesterday.

“Enjoyable for the neutral and I am sure the fans in here loved it by the time we got ahead,” 

Robertson told BT Sport.

“First half an hour we blew them away. Then we got sloppy and stopped doing the things we were doing really well. We let them back into the game and walk in at half-time thinking ‘how have we let this happen?’

“It was important at the start of the second half to come and forget about the last 10 minutes and come out and do what we did for the first half-hour.”


Mohamed Salah

 scored early in the second half before 

Jordan Henderson

 sealing the victory with a scorching half-volley in the 69th-minute.

“We got an early goal and then what a strike by Hendo and then we were able to see out the game. They didn’t really have chances after that which is really pleasing. We know how tough the Champions league is and how important it is to start with three points.”


Being asked what Jurgen Klopp did to change the situation during his half-time team talk, Robertson revealed: 

“There wasn’t much to solve. It was the last 10 minutes the gaps in midfield got too big. They found spaces between us, which is always dangerous, especially when the wingers start to go inside. As soon as we closed the gaps there was no room to play.

“When you play in this tournament it is against good teams. We need to be smarter. Really tough but we managed to come out second half, play our football and enjoy it again.”
