Liverpool drew a high profile game against Tottenham on Sunday, but it was a game full of drama late on with the referee decisions taking centre stage.
The Reds appear to have won the game after Mohamed Salah scored what looked like the winner in the 91st minute. However, in the 94th minute, the Lilywhites were awarded a penalty for a very soft challenge by Virgil van Dijk on Erik Lamela.
The centre referee, Jon Moss did not appear to be convinced at first, but his lineman had his flag up for a foul and he awarded it. After the penalty was taken, Jurgen Klopp appeared to sarcastically clap for the linesman.
Immediately after the final whistle, the Liverpool manager rushed to confront the linesman, and he had to be held back by even his opposing number Mauricio Pochettino.
When asked if he had gotten an explanation from the referee about the goal, the enraged German claimed:
“Did you ever hear? I am not allowed to go in their room until half an hour after.
“It was clear offside, unbelievable, I don’t know what they were discussing.
“Yes, Virgil van Dijk touches him, but we all know Lamela wants the touch and we all know there were some hard fouls in the first half and we didn’t get any fouls.
“That was the level for the game today, but then a situation in the last minute like that? Wow. He wanted to be middle of interest and he is.” He added.
