Jurgen Klopp is enraged by the “reckless, clear red card” given to a West Ham player during Liverpool’s defeat.
After losing 3-2 to West Ham, Jurgen Klopp was furious in his post-match interview, claiming the referee missed a “clear foul” and a “clear red card.”
In the 3-2 defeat at the London Stadium, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was enraged by the referee’s decision not to dismiss West Ham’s Aaron Cresswell.
Cresswell escaped any punishment for his rash challenge, which allowed the home side to shock the 2020 Premier League champions with a three-point victory.
Klopp was frustrated by his team’s performance as well as the referees’ lack of assistance.
Apart from the Cresswell incident, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was also unhappy with the build-up to the Hammers’ first goal, in which defender Angelo Ogbonna was accused of obstructing goalkeeper Alisson Becker.
However, some commentators, such as Jamie Carragher, disagreed that wit was a sin.
“It’s a clear foul on Alisson,” Klopp said.
I mean, how could it not be?
“The arm has been raised.
Obgonna’s arm is present.
“How can it not be a foul already [even]without pushing Alisson’s arm away in a situation where you can see the dynamic and where they all go down, how close they are?”
“However, the referee made it easy for himself, and VAR said it was not clear and obvious, for reasons I don’t understand.”

The German then moved on to another incident involving an Aaron Cresswell challenge on Jordan Henderson, which could have resulted in a red card.
Cresswell appeared to scissor-kick Henderson, leaving him in a heap while avoiding a yellow card.
“It’s a clear red card for Cresswell,” Klopp said of the decision not to penalize him.
There is no way to talk about this.
“This is a daring challenge.”
Liverpool dropped to fourth place in the table, behind West Ham United and Manchester City, after the Hammers overtook them.
