Exeter City striker Clinton Morrison has revealed Liverpool fans told him about their unhappiness with manager Jurgen Klopp's team selection at half-time on Friday night.
The two teams drew 2-2 in the FA Cup third round as the German fielded an inexperienced team at St James' Park due to injuries and a congested schedule. But Morrison told TalkSPORT the away fans were not impressed and expects a completely different team in the replay.
He said: “I don’t think, when we play them at Anfield, he will change the team as much. I think you will see five or six first-teamers back. Jurgen Klopp knows the Liverpool fans won’t accept [a similar performance at home].
“When I was warming up at half-time one of the Liverpool fans shouted out, ‘Oi, Clinton. Tell that Klopp to sort it out. We didn’t come all this way to see this.’
“I know for a fact there were some disgruntled people there who were disappointed in the team he picked.”
Despite their inexperienced team, Morrison admitted some of the Reds youngsters did prove they have what it takes to become stars.
He added: “We thought they were there for the taking but they still had a lot of quality. The left-back Brad Smith is a terrific talent. He’s one for the future, and the right-back [Randall] too. I thought they were both very good.
“I still think they had enough quality on the pitch to cause us problems but I just thought we were the better team and we’re slightly disappointed we’re not through.”
Up next for Liverpool is a home match against Arsenal - their third game and location in just eight days.
