Premier League: Klopp asks to replay match against Tottenham after refereeing error

Jürgen Klopp is not angry. Last Saturday on Tottenham's pitch, Liverpool conceded their first defeat of the season (1-2) after an incredible scenario. Reduced to ten then nine, the Reds collapsed at the last second with an own goal from their defender Joël Matip. A frustration which is added to an unfortunate act of play in the first period, the opening score refused to Luis Diaz, in the 34th minute, for an offside which was not one. The next day, the Association of Professional Referees in England admitted a “human” error by the officials in charge of VAR who should have intervened to award the goal. A rare fact which nevertheless does not erase the annoyance within the Mersey club.

Present at a press conference this Wednesday on the eve of the reception of Union Saint-Gilloise in the Europa League (Thursday 9 p.m.), Jürgen Klopp returned to this incident. And took the opportunity to make a daring request. “I'm not interested in why things happened the way they did. I saw the result, I saw a goal, we scored. It's important that we really treat him appropriately, said the German coach. I mean the people involved - the referee, the linesman, the fourth official and especially the VAR - didn't do it on purpose. We must not forget this. Yes it was a mistake. I think there would have been solutions for this. I can say straight away, although some people wouldn't want me to say it as the manager of Liverpool but rather as a footballer, the only outcome should be a replay. It's like that"

If the Liverpool technician asked to replay the match against Tottenham, he still admitted that “it probably won't happen”. He who tries nothing, has nothing after all....
