“I have really no idea what his problem is with me” – Klopp bemoans Tierney’s performance and deduces a personal motive from the ref

Posted by

Jurgen Klopp was not happy after Liverpool dropped two points to Tottenham Hostspur and our boss placed a lot of blame on referee Paul Tierney.

It was not just this game that the German believed that the ref has been against him and his side, as he made a clear statement that he believed this issue was personal.

Our boss spoke with Sky Sports after the game and sent a clear message out to the 40-year-old.

He said: “These situations are crucial and they are decisive situations … the ref and the VAR does not to say a word.

“I have really no idea what his problem is with me, honestly I have no idea.

“I have no problem, I think in the beginning we had some – I was a bit more emotional in the games but it’s not allowed in a situation like this”.

It was certainly a disappointing afternoon and the man who celebrates his birthday on Christmas day will certainly have not made the day much better for any of our squad.

Hopefully it’s not a costly draw in the end of the season and we can fight back if and when our next game comes about.
