‘What Referee Jon Moss Told Me About Penalty Awarded To Tottenham’- Liverpool Boss Jurgen Klopp Speaks
Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp has revealed what referee, Jon Mosh told him after awarding two penalties to Tottenham in the 2-2 draw in the Premier League game on Sunday.
According to Klopp, Moss admitted he made a mistake over Harry Kane’s penalty decision.
Kane’s penalty in injury time rescued a draw for Mauricio Pochettino‘s side after Mohamed Salah had put Liverpool ahead just a few minutes earlier.
Kane had missed an earlier effort from the spot, while both penalty decisions were awarded after referee Jon Moss had consulted with his assistant Eddie Smart.
For the first penalty, Loris Karius brought down Kane who received the ball in an offside position but the Liverpool goalkeeper saved the striker’s effort.
In the second, Virgil van Dijk was adjudged to have kicked Erik Lamela in the box. While Moss missed the incident, his assistant alerted the foul and a penalty was then given.
Klopp said, “The first thing after the whistle he [the referee] comes to me and says he made a mistake, clear offside, unbelievable.
“I don’t know what they [the officials] were discussing. Second one, Van Dijk touches him but Lamela wants the touch and jumps 100 per cent, he feels the touch and it’s [given as] a penalty.
“In the first half we got no free-kicks in this situation, go and play, that’s the level for the game.”
