Super Eagles defender Leon Balogun has given his opinion about the challenge his team Brighton and Hove Albion will face when they come up against Liverpool next weekend.
Balogun made his debut in Brighton’s shock 3-2 win over Manchester United with his performance earning him praises from fans of the club considering the fact that he was introduced 20 minutes into the game after Lewis Dunk picked up an ankle injury.
The free summer signing from German Bundesliga side Mainz 05 is expected to once again line up for Brighton when they take on Liverpool at Anfield with Dunk set to miss out of the trip.
Liverpool game is going to be an entirely different game according to Balogun who says the style of coach Jurgen Klopp is a lot quicker and more intense than that of the coach of Manchester United Jose Mourinho.
” Some of the lads have just asked me that too and I said I had expected the Premier League to be quicker, but they told me this always the kind of game you play against United”, Balogun was quoted saying by the Guardian.
” They (Man United) like to slow it down a little bit sometimes. Liverpool is going to be completely different. I know how Klopp likes to play. It’s going to be a lot quicker and a lot more intense”.
