Social media is wrong about ‘demoralizing’ Jurgen Klopp as the Liverpool plan has already started

After some promising months early in the season for Liverpool, Fábio Carvalho has been fairly absent from the first-team since the turn of the year. But against Real Madrid at the Bernabéu, Jürgen Klopp gave him a rare appearance in one of football’s most sacred stadiums.

Carvalho came into overtime with the game. But despite not staying on the pitch for long, even the experience of being on the field against Real Madrid was an important moment in his career considering he played against opponents like Luton in the league last season .

But that undeniably positive moment was turned into a negative as some on social media went so far as to claim Klopp was “demoralizing” by using Carvalho so late in the game.

A poll by SPORTbible urged people to give their verdict on Carvalho’s late substitution, with a large majority voting for the Liverpool manager’s gesture to be demoralizing.

However, given the context, this is somewhat unfair. Last month, Klopp was asked about Carvalho’s exile and he praised the Portugal U21 international, calling him a “great talent” with a “long career” ahead of him.

“Fabio is a very young player and a great talent,” said the Reds coach. “He played well for us in a couple of games. Now the situation is that we have to make a squad and he couldn’t make the last one. That’s how it is.”
