Jurgen Klopp

Jurgen Klopp said Liverpool were rejected a clear charge as the Reds suffered a 1-0 defeat versus Southampton at St Mary’s on Monday night.

Former Liverpool striker Danny Ings scored the only objective of the match inside the opening two minutes, as the Reds’ Premier League title defence suffered a huge setback.

There were 2 circumstances in the video game that Liverpool felt the choice didn’t enter their favour. Georginio Wijnaldum had actually a shot obstructed by the hand of Jack Stephens, and secondly, Sadio Mane went down under a challenge from Kyle Walker-Peters.

Klopp felt that the handball was a clear penalty while the German was also unhappy with the treatment Mane received from the referee, Andre Marriner.

Although the Reds boss recommended that he is not searching for excuses, he couldn’t assist but vent out his frustration by comparing his side’s lack of good luck in getting charges with that of competitors Manchester United. It’s a fact that the Red Devils have won more penalties in 2 years than Klopp’s Liverpool had managed in 5 and a half years.

Popular football expert Gary Lineker took to Twitter to react to Klopp’s remark, stating– “ Bullets fired. If I was a fan of @ManUt I ‘d take that as a massive compliment.”
