Liverpool FC - Jürgen Klopp angry with opponent Burnley: "Then watch wrestling"

Liverpool coach Jürgen Klopp expressed anger about the tough duel behavior of the guests after the 2-0 (1-0) victory in the Premier League against Burnley FC.

“It is as if we have gone back ten or 15 years in time,” complained Klopp after the game on Saturday at the broadcaster BT Sport. “If you like that, then take a look at wrestling.” The guest players had tackled the professionals of Liverpool FC hard. Referee Mike Dean showed neither a yellow nor a red card during the game at Anfield.

“It was clear that we had to be ready for a real fight and we were today,” said Klopp. “But they saw the duels. I’m not 100 percent sure that we are going in the right direction with such decisions.”

The Premier League had informed the clubs before the season that referees are instructed not to whistle “trivial things” so that the flow of play is disrupted as little as possible.

Klopp called for these rules to be reconsidered or specified. “The announcement is currently to let the game play, but no one knows exactly what that means,” he said. “I like decisions that favor the attacking team, that’s good. But we have to keep protecting the players.”
