Jurgen KloppTottenham's 2-2 draw with Liverpool was a game that had it all: high chances, Harry Kane's first goal in ages, both teams return, a red card ... and controversy. Lots of controversy. "I have no idea what his problem is with me," said Reds boss Jürgen Klopp about referee Paul Tierney, whom he addressed full-time with a few angry words. "There are two wrong decisions from him and one right - all three against us." The angry German added that he had wondered if anyone was in the video assistant referee's office prior to Andy Robertson's dismissal. 20 min .: Kane catches Andy Robertson with a ruthless slide tackle and is booked. 37 min: Jota is pushed into the box by Emerson Royal, but no penalty is awarded 53 min: Spurs' Harry Winks is kicked by Joel Matip on the edge of the box, but no penalty is awarded 77 min: Robertson is given by the VAR Sent off for kicking Emerson's legs after initially showing a yellow card. If you want to turn you have to stop because you can't do both. ”When you look back on the situation, the VAR is there. On the yellow card: "You have to ask him what his problem is with me." I was a bit more emotional in the game, but the referee gave me the yellow card - but isn't that allowed in a situation like this? He comes over and gives me the yellow card, but I would have preferred the right decisions on the pitch. "About Kane's expulsion:" It's a clear, absolutely 100 percent red card. I just have to ask two people, Mr. Tierney and whoever the VAR was. Harry shouldn't have stood on the pitch in the second half and told me how the game was going. "This situation, when Andy Robertson's leg is still on the ground, his leg is broken. It's still a red card, but the referee saw it differently." On Robertson's red card: "It's not the toughest ever, but it's not the smartest either; he knows that, he's a really good boy, but he's lost it a bit." This red card can be given, but is there any proof? that the VAR was there today because we previously thought he couldn't be in his office because of the other two situations. "On the performance of Tierney:" You don't need a referee to help you. You need a referee who is clear and objective. Spurs coach Antonio Conte said: "I don't know if Jürgen wanted to comment, but I can tell you that my staff told me that it was incredible to give the second goal and not to ban it because there was a clear handball Salah: "I don't like that we have to talk about referee decisions at the end. Kane didn't even think that he should have booked, let alone sent off the court." At the time I thought it was a good, strong one One-on-one, "he told BBC Sport. That's what VAR is for [to make the right decision]." In a game like this there will be tough tackles. Former Liverpool midfielder Ray Houghton said on BBC Radio 5 Live: "What we need from VAR is accountability, we don't hear from them." They are just people in a room making these decisions. Nothing is imputed to them as to why they are Make a decision? "That's why you get situations in which Jürgen Klopp is absolutely angry in his technical area. He saw that a possible red card was not given and a penalty was not given." Former Wales midfielder Robbie Savage said: "I thought VAR should make the right decision. It's a rule for Tottenham today and a rule for Liverpool." Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher told Sky Sports: "You can't excuse talking to a referee, but managers are emotional. We want the managers to be honest and emotional and the decisions that will be made against Liverpool were one gross punishment. Harry Kane should have been sent away. "We were frustrated with VAR a year or two ago; at the moment we're okay with that, but we went exactly the other way. Now let's consider what the point of VAR with penalties? It's not VAR, it's who "controls it." Commenting on the missed penalty, ex-Reds midfielder Jamie Redknapp said, "He's just pushing him. At least get an opinion from VAR. It's a joke of a decision."
