‘It took too long and it was really cold,’ said Jurgen Klopp, when asked about the intervention of VAR tonight v FC Midtjylland.
The second-half was decimated by referees who ended up adding over ten minutes of injury time onto the 45 – after three goals in which they couldn’t work out what happened.
The first was a weird offside, the second was a weird offside, and the third was a weird offside that ended up being a weird handball.
Klopp admits that while he was once an advocate of VAR, he no longer is – which is how we all feel.
It doesn’t make you an idiot to change your mind after fresh experiences and new information, it makes you sensible!
Jürgen Klopp (on VAR): "I haven't seen it back but it took too long and it was really cold. It's really hard. I used to be one of the people who said VAR is a good idea but I'm not sure I'd say that again."

It doesn’t really matter – tonight was a nothing game – but why does it have to be so unenjoyable nowadays?!
Shouldn’t we be allowed to enjoy football without hating every 90 minutes because of this faceless intervention?
After all – our team is really, really good. Imagine what it’s like for those who support rubbish ones now.
