Coach Jürgen Klopp of the reigning Champions League winner FC Liverpool has expressed clear criticism of the Premier League video assistant.
After the Red 2-0 victory over Watford FC, where a goal from Sadio Mane was denied due to an alleged offside position, Klopp said at the ensuing press conference: "I'm not scoring anymore because we have to wait until someone says it is a goal. "
Despite the two goals from Mohamed Salah, the German head coach of the Premier League was not thrilled – also because of the lack of a Mane goal.
The Senegalese are said to have been offside in the 50th minute. "I didn't see it. I don't know if he was offside," the 52-year-old said of the scene. The Salah goal of 2: 0 was also checked by the VAR in minutes before the goal on the scoreboard was a reality.
Liverpool FC are at the top of the table in England with 49 points. Jürgen Klopp has already celebrated a Liverpool goal 42 times. The 16th home victory against Watford was a success.
It was only this week that the former coach of Borussia Dortmund extended his contract at Anfield. Klopp signed a new working document until 2024, he came to the red every year.
