Porto manager Sergio Conceicao has hailed Thiago Alcantara and Mo Salah following their 2-0 defeat to Liverpool in the UEFA Champions League group-stages.
The first-half was goalless, however, in the second-half both Thiago Alcantara and Mohamed Salah netted to hand three points to their side.
Speaking to A Bola, Conceicao was asked what went wrong for his team on Merseyside, to which Porto boss replied:
“First, the lack of offensive effectiveness. Then, the individual quality of the opponent.
“It was perhaps the best first-half we’ve played against Liverpool and we’ve played them a few times. We created three or four chances to score.
“Liverpool’s goal came with a fantastic shot by Thiago. And then we saw the quality of Salah for the second.”
The Reds have won every one of their five Champions League games so far this season and have become the first English side in 82 years to score more than twice in 16 consecutive games in all competitions.
