Wataru Endo Proud of Liverpool’s Resilience Despite Controversial Decisions in Tottenham Defeat

Wataru Endo expressed disappointment but immense pride in Liverpool’s tenacious performance, despite enduring “difficult decisions” in their dramatic late loss to Tottenham. Liverpool’s unbeaten start to the Premier League season came to an end as they suffered a 2-1 defeat to Spurs, with Joel Matip’s unfortunate own goal in stoppage time sealing the result.

The match was marred by contentious moments, including Curtis Jones’ red card following a VAR review, an incorrect offside decision that disallowed Luis Diaz’s opener, and Diogo Jota’s sending off. Liverpool fought valiantly with only nine players on the field.

Summer signing Wataru Endo, who entered the match during Liverpool’s reduced circumstances, reflected, “At the end, a very tough game but there were 50-50 decisions in the game, and yeah, it’s very difficult to play with nine players. But I wanted to get one point, so I am very disappointed about it. I am just so proud of this team. We have to learn from this result and, of course, we showed our spirit, even though we faced difficult decisions, we fought until the end. That’s Liverpool, and always we have to try to win the game. We can learn from this game, but we just keep going.”

Endo emphasized that no blame should be placed on Joel Matip for his late own goal, as he commended the defender’s performance: “Actually, he played an amazing game today, so no one can say something to him. I am so proud of what he did today and I am so proud of what my teammates did today.”

Liverpool looks to bounce back from their first Premier League defeat at Brighton next Sunday, followed by international matches. Tottenham, under Ange Postecoglou, has seen a resurgence this season and currently stands second in the standings, aiming to maintain their strong performance.
