Liverpool FC boss Jurgen Klopp insisted that they learned a "very important lesson" after the Reds let a three-goal lead slip before Mohammad Salah scored the winner in the Champions League game against Red Bull Salzburg Wednesday night.

Anfield erupted in joy when the hosts netted three goals inside 36 minutes, courtesy Sadio Mane, Andrew Robertson and Salah's goals. They went into the half time with a lead of 3-1 after Salzburg's Hwang Hee-Chan got the better of tall man Virgil van Dijk before putting the ball at the back of the net at the 39th minute.

Salzburg, apparently, have been bullies in the Austrian league, having scored goals for fun - 40 in only nine matches. There were no surprises when they fought back in Anfield. The beginning of the second half solely belonged to Salzburg. The tourists further reduced the gap when Takumi Minamino volleyed at the 56th minute. Within a span of four minutes, substitute Erling Braut Haaland tapped in the equalizer. 

However, Liverpool, known for their never-give-up attitude, once again stood by that and Klopp was confident. 

"We showed character. I was not surprised about that, which is why I was not overly concerned at 3-3 because I knew we would have chances again," the German added. 

Klopp went on to acknowledge the power of the fans in Anfield as he said, "The fans are always important. In a game like this to celebrate winning a press ball like a goal. I am like this. The atmosphere was really intense. The people remember that we are at Anfield and that something is possible."

The Liverpool boss was glad the team learned their lessons during the game and not after a loss. 

"We opened the door and they were running through, chasing through the door. They scored their goal, then at half-time we tried to adjust but all the goals they scored – the first goal, we lost the ball easy; second or third goal, we lost the ball easy. Counter-attacks, when you are 3-1 up, makes not a lot of sense." 

"But it happened. It was a very important lesson for us tonight, but I prefer massively to learn it in the game than after the game because if we would have lost 4-3 it would have been the same lesson," Klopp told during a pre-match interview Wednesday night.
