“I was really angry a few days ago but now I’m proud,” said the boss after Jordon Ibe’s goal proved the matchwinner.
Klopp discussed the incredible injury situation, saying Mamadou Sakho was unlikely to face Exeter on Friday.
The manager said that having three injured centre-backs could see him turn to the transfer market, while he hoped that Kolo Toure only has cramp.
“It’s a big shadow over the game for us, the injuries. I don’t know how serious and we have to wait for this.
“In this situation with no centre-backs fit I would say [transfers] is something we could look at.”
