Klopp says Quansah 'perfect' for Liverpool Euro win

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp was delighted with Jarell Quansah for their Europa League win against LASK.

The Reds won 4-0 with Quansah impressive at the back.

Klopp said: "Look, for us that's absolutely perfect. Jarell played a super game. But, by the way, the last line tonight, starting from the right… Joey, top, top, top; Ibou, top. That we took him off was a medical decision. No risks, stuff like this, give him minutes but not too long and Jarell played a super game, that's true.

"That couldn't be better news for the club, to be honest. I think before this season a lot of people told us we should buy a centre-half.

"We knew we had Jarell. Did we know that he will show up like this? No, not exactly, but we were pretty hopeful, so the future is bright. It's cool. Our own boy, calm on the ball, good in the challenge, quick, ruthless in the right moments and besides Caoimhin, who had one or two saves, [he] probably had the most spectacular defensive situations when he saved our backside in some moments. So, that's really good. [It's] top news for us."
