Speaking at the end of the game Liverpool Manger Jurgen Klopp said,
“Our penalty is a penalty. And I think the other one is not a penalty, but I don’t see it very often when they take it back. I didn’t expect that, but I think it’s the right decision.
“The red card is for sure unlucky, but it’s still a red card. Boot in the face and stuff like this, we’ve had red cards like this in the past.
“It was a tough game, come on! Honestly, how you win it, I couldn’t care less! The dirty ones are the really important ones! On a night like this, getting three points is really massive.”
“The situation is clear, I wanted to shake his hand, he didn’t want it.
“His reaction was for sure not right, mine [waving down the tunnel] was not too cool also, but we are both emotional, so when I see him next time we will shake hands definitely
“He was obviously angry, not with me, but with the game, it’s nothing else.”
