Nigerian born Liverpool forward Jordon Ibe has revealed that all his Reds teammates are all disappointed at their performance in Sunday’s 6-1 humiliating defeat to Stoke City.
The 19-year-old teen star told Liverpool’s official website that they must learn from the shock loss at the Britannia Stadium in their pre-season and play at a high standard next season.
Ibe who replaced Lazar Markovic at the start of the second half in the encounter believes with the coming of new players the club will prepare well for next season when the pre-season kicks-off.
“It’s not good for anyone to lose 6-1, in any game. We just have to learn from this and come back stronger next season,” he told Liverpool’s official website.
“Everyone is just disappointed and we just need to learn from it. Hopefully when we play Stoke or any other team, we won’t be losing these sorts of games.
“We need to play to a higher standard, whether it’s the first game of the season or the last. We’ve not played the best today but we need to go away in pre-season and learn from this. With new players coming in and having time off, we can build from this and get better.”
Liverpool finished sixth place on the EPL log which earns them a Europa Cup spot.
