Klopp: ‘The referee took a second to penalize Liverpool 11m’

Coach Jurgen Klopp continued to criticize VAR for adverse decisions affecting Liverpool in the defeat of Everton on the evening of February 20.

“It was unfair when I was asked about the penalty. That means, there is a certain suspicion of the situation. But now it doesn’t make sense, because the referee judges it as a penalty. “, Jurgen Klopp said at the press conference after losing to Everton.

Liverpool have a chance to level the score with fourth-placed Chelsea team if they win the Merseyside derby. However, Anfield once again became an obsession with Klopp’s teachers and students. In the third minute, they were conceded by Richarlison. Although holding the ball 72% in the remaining time and shot a half more than Everton, the red shirt team could not have an equalizer.

Seven minutes before time ran out, Dominic Calvert-Lewin entered the Liverpool penalty box. After the shot was blocked by goalkeeper Alisson Becker, striker Everton entangled Trent Alexander-Arnold and fell into the field. Referee Chris Kavanagh pointed at the 11m point. That decision was strengthened, after the king of the pitch reviewed the video. On the 11m mark, Gylfi Sigurdsson set a 2-0 victory for the visitors.

“I really wanted to talk to the referee right after the game, but he left the pitch too quickly. My question is, what did he observe on the pitch, before the VAR signal. I think, Mr. We are not sure about the foul either, but it only takes a second to decide to blow the penalty, “Klopp continued. “Kavanagh came to the slow-motion view, and must have seen something we all didn’t see. Even though I haven’t reviewed the situation, I’ve been confirmed by everyone, it can’t be a penalty.”

Defeat to Everton was Liverpool’s fourth consecutive home defeat. The champions of the Premier League are now in danger of falling in the middle of the scoreboard, if the following teams like Everton, Aston Villa or Tottenham win in the unbeaten matches.
