Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has been angered by Hamja Chowdhary’s rash tackle on Mohammed Salah in the dying embers of their game against Leicester City. The Merseysiders ensured their hundred per cent record remained intact after James Milner netted a stoppage-time penalty to win the game for his club.
Chowdhary fouled Salah with a slide tackle just a few moments before Liverpool won the penalty, causing the Egyptian to limp off the pitch. And, Klopp has let his unhappiness known about the matter.
“Mo limped off the pitch. That’s hard. It was done to slow Mo down and that is not OK.”
“It’s just a challenge which I really don’t understand,” Klopp added at his post-game press conference.
“How he can do it, because the ball is far away. The player is full sprint to bring him down without the ball around, for me there is only one colour card.”
“I see in your eyes that I am probably the only one who sees it like this.”
“It is dangerous as hell. I don’t want to cause the boy [Choudhury] any problems but he has to calm down.”
“He has to calm down. This is not the first situation like this. Super player but these kind of challenges… no.”
Liverpool will travel to Old Trafford next to face Manchester United in their next Premier League fixture.
