Dominik Szoboszlai had a key role in Liverpool’s comeback against Wolves and he has now shared what was said in the dressing room at half-time, that meant the Reds came back into the match.
Speaking with LFCTV, the Hungarian said: “At half-time the manager talked to us about the passion and what we needed in the second half, the work and what we needed to put into the game.
“I think we switched the formation and then everybody did their job and we turned the game.”
A rousing speech and a tactical change seems to have been enough to change the course of the match and it’s yet another reminder of how important Jurgen Klopp is to our club.
As much as we’d rather he didn’t need to have to do that during the half-time break, it shows just how brilliant the German and his coaching staff are when we really need them.

Garth Crooks lauded Andy Robertson’s contributions in a remarkable 3-1 comeback win for Liverpool at the Molineux on Saturday.
The Scot played an ‘instrumental’ role in the Reds securing the lion’s share of the points with a goal crafted on the training ground late in the game as Mo Salah turned creator once more.
“It’s been some time since Robertson made my team but I thought his overall contribution to Liverpool’s victory at Wolves was well worth his selection,” the pundit wrote for BBC Sport.
“The international break clearly had an impact on Liverpool’s excellent league form, especially in the first half. Robertson’s role as skipper for club and country seems to suit him, although I thought he might have done more to block Hwang Hee-chan’s shot, which resulted in the hosts taking the lead.
“Nevertheless, the Scotland international was instrumental in keeping Liverpool’s run going with a well-taken goal.”
The result left the Merseysiders temporarily holding down the fort at the top of the table, though Manchester City did quickly retake their perch with a 3-1 comeback of their own in London against David Moyes’ resurgent West Ham outfit.
Plenty to look forward to for Liverpool
It can’t be overstated just how impressive the former Hull City man (who signed for an initial £8m rising to £10m back in 2017, according to BBC Sport) was in a backline that was utterly dysfunctional (barring the efforts of Academy graduate Jarell Quansah) in the first-half of action.
Robertson did take responsibility on behalf of the side in his post-match comments, though few could argue that he did anything but help set the tone for another significant show of resiliency and mental fortitude in the second 45 minutes of action.
Given that both Virgil van Dijk and Ibrahima Konate should be in line to return to action for our hosting of the Hammers on 24th September – there’s plenty of reasons to feel optimistic about where Jurgen Klopp can steer his men this season.
