Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has insisted that Eric Dier did not do anything wrong when asked about the recent handball fiasco which has infiltrated the Premier League.
Referee Peter Bankes harshly awarded Newcastle a penalty in the 95th minute of the game at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday, after consulting with VAR and checking the pitchside monitor following Andy Carroll’s header into the back of Eric Dier’s arm.
Klopp claimed that it is impossible for a player to control their body when they are attempting to aerially contest a header while making a tongue in cheek comment that the only option is to cut off the arms of players.
Spurs dominated the proceedings against the Magpies but were unable to add to Lucas Moura’s first half goal which ended up costing them dearly following the 1-1 draw.
