Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has blasted referee Jon Moss and his linesmen after yesterday’s pulsating draw at Anfield.
The Reds saw their hopes of securing Champions League football for next season dealt a major blow at Anfield when we claimed a late draw via Harry Kane’s late penalty.
We were awarded two spotkicks during the game, with Kane missing the first one but managing to convert the second deep into injury time and speaking after the match, Klopp hit out at the officials and expressed his anger at Moss’ failure to overturn either of the decisions.
“It was clear two sides high quality both wanted to win desperately, but the result was massively influenced by linesman decisions,” the Liverpool boss said.
“We have to take it, that’s how it is.”
When asked if he had spoken to Moss, he said: “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.
He added:Yes, Virgil van Dijk touches him, but we all know Lamela wants the touch and we all know they were so 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.”
The article adds that Klopp also admitted he found the result hard to take.
“We had fantastic moments, we could have defended better, but we created a lot of chances.,” he added, Big chances to be honest. But can you control the game against Tottenham for 90 minutes? I don’t think so, their quality is too high.It’s hard to accept all the decisions today.”
