Jurgen Klopp has been told he can learn a trick from Sir Alex Ferguson to recover from Liverpool’s 2-0 defeat to Atalanta.

Rio Ferdinand has revealed how his Manchester United sides picked themselves up from a similar position.

The Express quote him as telling BT Sport:

“From experience, you learn more (when you lose).

“You self-analyse, you look a little bit deeper when you don’t win a game or you don’t perform as well.

“I think you should do and you hope these young lads will do that, especially with the experience around, all the analysts.

“When we were winning it was all rosey, you win a game and it’s just onto the next one whereas when there’s a problem, actually you start looking back at what the problems were.

“[Ferguson] was never too high when we won and never too low when we lost.

“That was one of the big things I learnt when I went to Manchester United.

“I used to be down in the doldrums when we lost or I didn’t perform well, and I used to get that hangover for maybe three or four days.

“A big club like Liverpool, where they are now, they’re back out every two or three days so they can’t afford to have that.”
