Liverpool boss Klopp happy with comfortable win over Bologna

Jurgen Klopp was pleased after Liverpool secured a 2-0 win over Bologna in two 60-minute friendlies in Evian on Thursday.

Diogo Jota and Sadio Mane both scored inside the opening quarter of an hour of the first game.

Takumi Minamino then scored a wonderful volley to win the second game.

Talking to the club's website, Klopp said of the performance: "Good. I liked obviously the way we scored the goals because they [the opponents] lost the ball easy – I don't think it was easy, it was just we forced them.

"From that we played really good football against a defensive-orientated team but I liked a lot of things. Always when we kept the ball, when we had the right speed for our passing and kept them running, it looks really good.

"In the second game especially as well, it was really good. I liked the rhythm we played. You come to chances, you have to use them. We had more chances than we scored but obviously Taki scored after Shaq's pass was a nice one.

"How I said, [we] could have scored more with the penalty and all that stuff but it's all fine. As long as nobody is injured, how it looks in the moment, then it was 60 minutes for a lot, 45 minutes for some and 15 minutes for some, so that's exactly what we wanted to have today. I'm really happy."
