Ki-Jana Hoever sends message after club's defeat to Liverpool

Ki-Jana Hoever has taken to social media to send a message to Wolves supporters, following the club’s defeat to Liverpool on Saturday.

Bruno Lage’s side were seconds away from claiming a point against Jurgen Klopp’s outfit.

A 0-0 draw would have been a very respectable result against one of the world’s top teams.

But Reds striker Divock Origi popped up at the death to score for the visitors, stunning supporters inside Molineux.

It had been a heroic defensive effort from the hosts.

Earlier in the game, Conor Coady had made a clearance on his own goal line from Diogo Jota when it looked as though he couldn’t miss.

And Jose Sa made some key saves.

But Wolves just couldn’t hold on.

Today, Hoever has taken to social media to send a message to Wolves fans.

The Dutchman misplaced a pass when Wolves were counter-attacking, with the reds then going on to get their goal.

He wrote: “Sorry for letting down my teammates and the fans this weekend. Every mistake has its lesson and I learned from this one. We keep going.”

Ki-Jana Hoever apology message not necessary following Wolves’ defeat to Liverpool

Respect must go to Hoever for fronting up, but there is no need for him to apologise.

Anyone can make a mistake, and it’s just unfortunate that Wolves were facing one of the world’s top teams.

It was an unbelievable ball from Virgil van Dijk to pick out Mo Salah, whose first touch was sublime. At the end of the day, two world-class players have combined and come in clutch.

Hoever has hardly featured this season. Perhaps Lage didn’t do him any favours putting him on in a high-pressure situation.

It’s win and lose together, and Wolves fans will undoubtedly get behind Hoever the next time he takes to the field.

As he says himself, he will learn from this and a player with the quality and potential he has will bounce back.
