Koeman hails his team after stunning comeback against Liverpool
Southampton continue their march to the top 5 spots of the Premier League after having claimed a superb 3-2 victory over Liverpool FC in a match that saw the home team falling behind in the scoreboard 0-2 but in the 2nd half they managed to not only equalize the match but also get ahead and win the game.
In the first half of the match, Liverpool scored twice through the likes of Philippe Coutinho and Daniel Sturridge but despite falling so behind in the scoreboard, this did not seem to hurt the morale of Ronald Koeman’s team as they came back in the 2nd half won the game with goals from Graziano Pelle and Sadio Mane.
When the match reached it’s end, Ronald Koeman voiced his satisfaction in the performance that his squad made as the Dutch coach said: “We were lucky in half time to only be two-nil down. We spoke about that. We needed to show the belief and the spirit in coming back into the game and to make it one-two, because then it’s a really open game. That happened. Great spirit. A great second half. The substitutes, Sadio and Victor Wanyama, had a big impact in the game in the second half.’’
“It was well deserved, a great game and it was great support from the fans. This is what football is about. I’m proud of the team and the fans. It’s easy to tell everybody because you get three points, but even with the two-two or the one-two, how we came back in the game was amazing.”
This victory is huge for Southampton as they are getting closer on snatching a top 5 spot in the Premier League which will allow them to compete in a European competition for the upcoming season. Twitter celebrity Tim Hensel of Wedding Photography in Manchester thinks they will do it!
