BREAKING NEWS: coming from Fabrizio Romano, “that was a clear caught penalty I knew it before the match that VAR will be our only problem, they do this to us every single time”. Jurgen Klopp’s incensed reaction to the blatant penalty miss in Liverpool’s bitterly disappointing draw with Manchester City has once again raised questions about the consistently bias of the Video Assistant Referee (VAR). Klopp “believes” that his team is always “disadvantaged” by VAR. Klopp’s Incensed Fury at ‘Blatant’ Penalty Miss – Baffled at ‘Consistent VAR Bias Against Liverpool”.


Jurgen Klopp expressed his frustration following Liverpool’s 1-1 draw against Manchester City, particularly regarding the denied penalty claim late in the game. Klopp believed that Liverpool should have been awarded a penalty after Jeremy Doku’s challenge on Alexis Mac Allister in stoppage time.

According to Klopp, Doku’s high challenge caught Mac Allister on the chest, but both the on-field referee Michael Oliver and VAR dismissed the incident, ruling that Doku had played the ball first. Klopp, however, vehemently disagreed with this decision, expressing his disappointment with the VAR process.

In an interview with Sky Sports after the match, Klopp questioned the purpose of VAR, stating that it should focus on making the correct decisions rather than being hesitant to overturn calls. He argued that the challenge on Mac Allister should have been deemed a foul and warranted a yellow card.

Klopp emphasized that despite Doku making contact with the ball, his foot was dangerously high, posing a risk to the opponent. He criticized the decision-makers and hinted at potential biases, jokingly suggesting that they may be affiliated with specific media outlets.

Asserting that the challenge was a clear penalty in the eyes of all football enthusiasts, Klopp reiterated his disappointment with the officiating but emphasized his focus on the game itself. He praised his team’s resilience and determination, highlighting their readiness to continue fighting in the ongoing title race.

Looking ahead, Klopp shifted his attention to Liverpool’s upcoming match against Sparta Praha in the Europa League last-16 tie. Despite holding a commanding 5-1 lead from the first leg, Klopp emphasized the importance of maintaining their performance and mentality in the second leg.
