Footage Emerges Of Salzburg's Fascinating Half-Time Team Talk Versus Liverpool

Salzburg coach Jesse Marsch caught plenty of attention for his sideline antics during his side's clash with Liverpool in the Champions League this week so it should not come as a surprise that his half-time talk was similarly entertaining.

With the Austrian champions 3-1 down, their manager took it upon himself to try and inspire a reaction from his team.

Salzburg released comprehensive footage of the speech which is a mix of English, German and cursing.

"Firstly, how many fouls have we committed? Maybe two?" he asks his players. "It is not a fucking friendly. It’s a Champions League match."

The American went on to discuss several Liverpool players: "Be more ruthless against Van Dijk, we play with too much respect. Too much respect."

It nearly worked. Erling Braut Håland's goal after an hour made it 3-3, but they could not hold out and ten minutes later Mo Salah secured all three points for the defending champions.
