Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp sees first Premier League boss shoot down replay demand

Jurgen Klopp, the manager of Liverpool, wants to replay Saturday’s Premier League defeat to Tottenham due to Darren England’s devastating VAR error

Aston Villa manager Unai Emery has rejected Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp’s request for a replay against Tottenham. Despite a grovelling apology and explanation from the PGMOL, Klopp is still enraged that Luis Diaz’s goal in the Reds’ 2-1 defeat last week was not allowed to stand.

VAR Darren England incorrectly assumed that the on-field judgement was to award Diaz’s strike. However, the assistant referee had ruled it out for offside, and England’s “check complete” declaration had mistakenly confirmed the incorrect decision.

Despite the fact that Liverpool did not make a formal request for a rematch, Klopp believes it is the only fair method to settle the Premier League match. Spurs went on to win 2-1 thanks to a late own goal by Joel Matip.

“Something like this never happened, so I think a replay is the right thing to do,” Klopp remarked on Wednesday.

However, Villa tactician Emery has advised the German to simply accept the error and move on. The Spaniard noted that there were larger errors before to the advent of VAR, and there is little precedent for replays.

“Before, when we didn’t have VAR, there were a lot of mistakes – more than now,” Emery remarked ahead of Villa’s Europa League match against Zrinjski.

“I can now accept some mistakes in VAR.” There are simply a few… minor errors. Of doubt, Liverpool made a massive mistake in their last match against Tottenham, but we have to accept it because there were so many before, without VAR.

“I listened to the referees’ conversation because it’s popular, and they were concerned about their mistake but couldn’t react.” They had resumed their game. It’s a blunder. It is ok to me. Of course, it is more tough for Liverpool.

It’s more tough for Jurgen as well, but I accept it. I know there were more errors before VAR was introduced. However, if an error occurs, you must accept it as before. So, no, no (replay). You must accept it as you did before, when we did not have VAR.”

The PGMOL published the tape of the officials’ conversation on Tuesday, revealing that England had made a mistake with the on-field judgement. The referees’ body said that it would change official language to improve intelligibility.
