‘Klopp’s plan all along’: Reds fans react as club could be thrown out of the Carabao Cup

Posted by

Liverpool could be thrown out of the Carabao Cup despite being MK Dons comfortably on Wednesday night after fielding Pedro Chirivella, the Spanish midfielder.

There is a suggestion that Chirivella was not properly registered to play in the match, meaning a punishment is likely to follow. This could be expulsion from the tournament, or it could just be a fine. For the full story, click here.

Some Reds fans joked that it was a deliberate move from Jurgen Klopp in order to get the club removed from a competition that he tends to regard as getting in the way of other games more than anything else.

In a similar vein, others joked that a more appropriate punishment would be staying in the tournament.


It’s safe to say quite a few people were less than concerned by the allegations.

Providing the Reds are not thrown out of the competition, they will face Arsenal at Anfield in the next round, with that game pencilled in for Wednesday, October 30.

That will be another chance for young players like Harvey Elliott and Ki-Jana Hoever to feature, so they would be the ones to suffer should the club be removed from the tournament.
