Liverpool midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum has sent a message to supporters after the defeat to Napoli.

The Reds were beaten 2-0 away from home, after conceding two late goals.

 

Dries Mertens scored a penalty, which was given away by Andy Robertson, before Fernando Llorente pounced on an errant Virgil van Dijk backpass.

Wijnaldum sent a message to supporters after the loss

Wijnaldum played a key role in Liverpool's Champions League run last season and will need to step up a gear again.

This performance was a reminder to Liverpool that no matter how easy they can make the Premier League look at times, the Champions League can be uniquely challenging.

As the holders, teams will see the Reds as even more of a scalp, and Liverpool need to adjust to that mentally.

Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool can use this defeat to their advantage, and Wijnaldum is already looking forward to making up for this loss.
