Jurgen Klopp gave credit for Liverpool‘s victory at the FA Cup to the neuroscience firm that had assisted the team enhance its performance in penalty shootouts.
After 120 minutes of scoreless regulation and overtime, Saturday’s Wembley showdown between the Reds and Chelsea was decided by a 6-5 penalty shootout, with Kostas Tsimikas scoring the game-winning penalty for the Reds.
When Liverpool defeated Chelsea in the Carabao Cup Final in February, Jurgen Klopp credited neuro11, a German company co-founded by Dr. Hausler and Hantschke, for helping to improve player performance by monitoring brain activity.
Klopp explains that they collaborate with a group of “four men” under the moniker neuro 11. “They contacted us two years ago; I believe I was aware of this at the time. A neurologist among them boasted that they can train penalty shooting.
They met this German gentleman. They all pulled together, and much like the Carabao Cup, this one is for them.
Klopp intervened because he knew Edouard Mendy from their time together in Senegal, and Mane missed the goal, Liverpool’s lone miss in the shootout.
He said, “Sadio’s fine was probably higher, definitely at least 50%,” his fault.
“We need to let the lads try out their own ideas, but in this case I told him, “He knows precisely the goaltender; try it the other way around.” In this case, as in so many others, I should have kept quiet. Even so, we made it.”
Can Liverpool Win The Quadruple?
On Sunday, when Man City are scheduled to play, Klopp claimed his team’s prospects of achieving a quadruple of titles this season will become clearer.
Klopp told the press, “Let’s just see what happens.” “I’ll start to worry if they lose against West Ham. If they don’t, we’ll assume the worst and act accordingly.”
With the same number of games remaining, Liverpool sits three points behind City but has a worse goal difference.
