Klopp says that due to an error in the Var, Tottenham v Liverpool should be replayed

Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp argued that the game against Tottenham in the Premier League should be played again. The match, won by Spurs 2-1, last Saturday (30), was marked by the VAR’s error in marking Luis Díaz’s legitimate goal for offside.

“(I say) not as a Liverpool manager, but as someone in football. I think the only outcome should be to play again. That’s probably not going to happen. The argument against that is that if you open that gate, everyone will ask for it. This is an unprecedented situation”, commented Klopp, in a press conference this Wednesday (4).

Because of the error, the person responsible for the match’s video refereeing, Darren England, and assistant Dan Cook were suspended from next weekend’s Premier League round. PGMOL, the association that represents Premier League referees, admitted human error. Referee Simon Hooper was spared and is scheduled as normal.

It’s worth remembering that all the confusion happened, as the game’s video referee, Darren England, reviewed the move and concluded that the goal was legal. However, as it was such an obvious image, he simply told the judge, Simon Hooper, that the review was complete. England would not have seen that the goal had been disallowed on the field.

As a result, with 16 points, Liverpool are fourth in the Premier League, two points behind leaders Manchester City. The team faces Brighton, this Sunday (8), away from home, in the eighth round, but before that, tomorrow (5), they face Saint-Gilloise in the Europa League, at Anfield.
