Liverpool goalkeeper Adrian says that despite some fantastic saves against Napoli he can’t be happy with himself as The Reds ended up losing 2-0.
Adrian made some brilliant stops against Carlo Ancelotti’s side with one particular save from Dries Mertens at the far post standing out above all.
However, the Spanish shot-stopper insists he is not happy despite his heroics as his team still lost on the night.
Speaking to Liverpoolfc.com, Adrian said:
“It’s my job as a goalkeeper, to try to save all the balls as much as I can and to try to help the team.
“I gave my best, I tried hard. But at the end of the day we lost 2-0, so I can’t be happy.
“We knew it was going to be a hard game for us, like last season was. At the end of the game it was small details; the penalty switched the game for them totally and then we lost a bit of shape and conceded the second one.”
When asked specifically about his wonder-save from Mertens, Adrian commented:
“I was trying to cover as much of the goal.
“It was clear he was going to strike with the first touch. I jumped, watching the ball and tried to touch it with any part of my body, in the end, I touched it with my right hand.”
Liverpool and Adrian return to action this Sunday when they take their 100% Premier League record to Frank Lampard’s young Chelsea team at Stamford Bridge.
