Liam Cooper spoke to the media after the loss to Birmingham City.
Liam Cooper says the game went wrong “because we started badly for the first 20 mins. We didn’t deserve anything.”— Adam Pope (@apopey) September 22, 2018
He has told BPF to bounce back from & “I’ve told him he’s a great keeper.”
He says standards dropped today and “we can’t afford that in this league.” #lufc pic.twitter.com/YoUJj3sGdr
Cooper gave some support to Bailey Peacock-Farrell, who did have a disappointing match against Birmingham, but the Northern Ireland keeper is still young and can’t mull too much on his mistakes in the match.
