The German coach questioned the referee's decision on Fulham's goal
boss Jurgen Klopp believes Fulham's goal should have been disallowed in tonight's game.
Liverpool played Fulham tonight and, while early in the game they were behind with a goal from Decordova-Reid, Reds able to equalize with a goal from Mohamed Salah from the penalty spot. Before Decordova-Reid's goal was scored, Mohamed Salah had a clash with a Fulham player, and Klopp now claimed that the referee should have ruled the scene wrong, and Fulham's goal should have been disallowed.
The German manager asked the reporter who posed about the goal:
“What did you think? Can I ask your opinion?"
The journalist replied that the referee, Lee Mason could have gone either way and Klopp continued: "
Neither of our opinions are 0.0% relevant, because we can’t change the decision.
"It’s a clear foul, nothing else. It’s not a yellow card or a red card, but the player who passed the ball gained an advantage, gets the ball by pushing Mo. If he doesn’t push Mo, Mo gets the ball.
"It’s not about how hard the foul is, it’s about the advantage. Two hands. Lee Mason, the VAR, says what – normal contact?
"I’m not sure what Lee Mason is doing at home, but that’s not normal contact in football. It’s enough contact to gain an advantage, so it’s a foul. But we can’t change it, and I only spoke about it because you asked.”
