Video: Neil Critchley discusses Liverpool’s 5-0 defeat at Aston Villa
Liverpool Under-23 boss Neil Critchley faced reporters for a post-match press conference after his side suffered a 5-0 defeat to Aston Villa in their Carabao Cup quarter-final tie last night.
With Reds coach Jurgen Klopp and his first-team stars in Qatar for the Club World Cup, Critchley was charged with leading a team of youngsters at Villa Park.
Despite the heavy defeat, Critchley wasn’t willing to accept it was a disappointing night for a side with an average age of 19 years and 182 days.
He told reporters: “Try telling those players it was a bad evening for them.
“My overwhelming feeling was one of immense pride.”
