Andy Robertson apologizes to Liverpool fans, admiting Reds are worse off after FA Cup exit to Brighton

Andy Robert­son has admit­ted that Liv­er­pool were ‘unsat­is­fac­to­ry’ after their FA Cup win­ners were eliminated.

Jür­gen Klop­p’s side suf­fered their sec­ond loss to Brighton in two weeks.

Liv­er­pool are elim­i­nat­ed in both cups and are ninth in the Pre­mier League, 10 points behind the top four. The only remain­ing tro­phy chances are the Cham­pi­ons League, where they will face reign­ing cham­pi­ons Real Madrid in the round of 16.

An angry Robert­son apol­o­gized to the club’s fans, say­ing “this sea­son has­n’t been good enough”. I want­ed to start again from the new year. If any­thing, it’s get­ting worse.

More than “fin­ger” can express. You can see the lack of con­fi­dence in front of the goal and the fact that the defense is still a lit­tle open.

You have to regain your “con­fi­dence”. I feel sor­ry for the fans. They did an incred­i­ble job today and we let them down again.”

From the begin­ning to the end, both teams had chances and I think it was a true cup match.

“We were a lit­tle bit bet­ter than two weeks ago, but we’re out of the cup and it’s frus­trat­ing. We have to start win­ning games. Easy to say, hard to fix.”

Liv­er­pool took the lead in the 30th minute with a goal from Har­vey Elliott, but Louis Dunk man­aged to get one back by a fluke, and in stop­page time the excel­lent Mit­o­ma suc­ceed­ed in win­ning with excel­lent con­trol and composure.

When Robert­son’s fierce words hit Klopp, the Ger­man replied, “Not 100% true, but not 100% wrong.” Of course, when I come back from the sus­pen­sion of the World Cup, I will do my best with a fresh start. ”

“And so far it’s not hap­pen­ing prop­er­ly. But we have to keep work­ing. Today we had a good per­for­mance, a good moment.

“The game two weeks ago was pret­ty much the worst game of my life,” he had in mind. So this one is bet­ter, much better.

“But we still con­ced­ed two goals from set pieces.

“But we did­n’t win the last game here. No one would be sur­prised if we won the game today.

Mit­o­ma signed from Japan’s Kawasa­ki Frontale for just €2.8m in 2021, hav­ing spent the pre­vi­ous sea­son on loan at Bel­gian side Union Saint-Geois­es, Albion’s sis­ter team.

He has scored six goals in 19 appear­ances for the Seag­ulls this sea­son, includ­ing his impres­sive stop-the-time strike.

Of the mag­i­cal goal, Dunk said: “I’m hap­py to have him on my side. I hate chas­ing him. He’s a top play­er and came out of nowhere.”

Rober­to De Zer­bi was hap­py with the result but felt he could have played better.
