Adam Bogdan: Goalkeeper's howler led to Watford opener

Goalkeeper Adam Bogdan accepts he was to blame for Watford’s opener in Liverpool’s 3-0 defeat at Vicarage Road.

Former Bolton stopper Bogdan was given a chance between the posts for the Reds in the absence of Simon Mignolet but made a howler, dropping a corner after only two minutes to allow Nathan Ake to bundle the ball over the line.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp suggested a foul should have been given but – while the Hungarian agrees – he admits he should have dealt with the cross better.

“It was a wrong time to concede,” Bogdan admitted after the game.

“I dropped the first ball which is a mistake, I hold my hands up, but I felt I recovered the ball and he kicked it out of my hands. But if I catch the first one it’s not a goal.

“I had both hands on the ball but we are talking about a split-second. It’s not easy for the referee to see. If I catch the first ball there is no second one.

Bogdan error

“Something went wrong, I have to think about it again. It was a mistake and I will learn from it.

“I felt good, it wasn’t nerves. I trained hard for this chance and it started as a nightmare. I don’t blame the referee or anyone else, I go back to train and work hard.”

The defeat leaves Liverpool ninth in the Premier League, five points off the top four.
