Liverpool boss Klopp and Lucas able to joke about Leicester blunder

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp and Lucas were able to laugh off his blunder against Leicester City yesterday.

The Brazilian was drafted in as makeshift centre-back for the first home game at the new and improved Anfield.

But he did his best to ruin the party when a shocking pass across the box was latched onto by the Foxes hitman.

Vardy wasted no time in duly converting to put Claudio Ranieri's side back in it before Liverpool ran out 4-1 winners.

Asked about the blunder, Lucas said: “It was my first assist in ten years!"

Klopp added: “Lucas was man of the match because he made the match exciting – that's what a man of the match has to do!"
