Dominik Szoboszlai Makes ‘Difficult’ Liverpool Admission and Reacts to Being Dropped by Jurgen Klopp

Dominik Szoboszlai played 45 matches in his debut season with Liverpool, having transferred from RB Leipzig the previous summer.

Dominik Szoboszlai has admitted the need for improvement at Liverpool next season.

The Hungarian midfielder, who joined the Reds for £60 million from RB Leipzig last summer, had an impressive start at Anfield. However, his performance waned in the second half of his debut season due to a hamstring injury, leading to him being benched.

Despite scoring seven goals and providing four assists in 45 appearances, the 23-year-old admitted that his first season with Liverpool was challenging.

While he was not unhappy with his performances, Szoboszlai conceded that he needs to improve under the guidance of new head coach Arne Slot.

“I’ve just finished a difficult season,” the 23-year-old said at a press conference. “But since this was my first in the Premier League, I’m not dissatisfied with my performance, although I definitely want to have a better season next time.

“I usually think positively, so it didn’t bother me that I played a smaller role at Liverpool at the end of the season. At least the chance of injury was lower and I could focus on the European Championship earlier.”

Speaking ahead of Hungary’s Euro 2024 opener against Switzerland this afternoon, Szoboszlai honoured his departing Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp, stating that it had been an honor to play under the German.

“It was an honour for me to be able to train and play under him,” Szoboszlai told Bild. “He is a very good coach and an even better person.

“I am very grateful to him for what I learned from him on and off the pitch. Not a single player can say anything bad about him because he always saw only the player and did everything for the team.”

Szoboszlai made history as the youngest captain in European Championship history when he led Hungary in their Group A opener against Switzerland.

Switzerland quickly gained a two-goal lead through Kwadwo Duah and Michel Aebischer. Szoboszlai then assisted in narrowing the deficit with a curling cross that Barnabas Varga converted.

However, Breel Embolo sealed a 3-1 victory for Switzerland. Switzerland will next face hosts Germany, while Hungary will play against Andy Robertson’s Scotland.
