As more details surface: Jurgen Klopp was mocked by Everton adversary during Tottenham loss.

During Saturday’s Premier League match, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was challenged by Tottenham player Richarlison.

According to reports, Tottenham player Richarlison and Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp were engaged in a verbal brawl during Saturday’s tense Premier League battle. Former Everton forward Richarlison was allegedly seen heading across to Klopp on a regular basis to trash criticise the German.

The Brazilian was instrumental in Tottenham‘s 2-1 win over Liverpool, assisting Son Heung-min to open the scoring. The Reds would go on to lose numerous important decisions before Joel Matip scored a last-minute own goal.

Observers spotted tension between Spurs star Richarlison and Liverpool manager Klopp throughout the game. The 26-year-old was frequently observed conversing with the opposing manager.

Richarlison and Klopp allegedly went ‘back and forth’ after a minor foul near the dugouts at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on one occasion. Richarlison then addressed Klopp again shortly after Curtis Jones’ ejection.

Richarlison‘s continual ‘going at’ Klopp forced Spurs manager Ange Postecoglou to interfere, according to Football.London. The Australian was reportedly spotted escorting the attacker away from the touchline to keep him out of trouble.

Liverpool felt cheated after three judgements went against them. Jones was sent off for a challenge on Yves Bissouma, and the Reds have challenged the decision, which was made after a VAR intervention.

After that, VAR official Darren English made a shocking gaffe, ruling out a Luis Diaz strike for offside despite the Liverpool forward being onside. Despite receiving a harsh first booking, Diogo Jota was eventually issued a second yellow card.

“Curtis [Jones] steps on the ball and goes over for the first red card.” That’s hardly a bad tackle. In slow motion, it appears differently. He takes a full step on the ball and goes over it. “That’s unfortunate,” Klopp reflected.

“The first yellow was not a yellow for Diogo Jota. Then he gets a second, and defending with nine players is difficult.”

“The offside goal,” Liverpool manager Klopp said of Diaz’s ruled-out goal. When you see it, that is not offside; they drew their lines incorrectly. They drew the line incorrectly and failed to gauge the moment when Mo passed the ball correctly. It’s quite difficult to deal with.”
