Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was evidently not happy with the refereeing decision that allegedly denied them a penalty against Leicester City in their last outing in the Premier League. The Reds ended the match on a draw and lost the opportunity to take a significant lead over the reigning champions Manchester City, who lost to Newcastle United in their last match by 2-1.

Speaking to the media after the match, the German gaffer made no attempts to conceal his frustration over the refereeing decision. He said, “If that is not a real chance and goalscoring situation, I do not know.”

He added, “I am not the referee, I am the manager, I am not sure, is it smart what he (Maguire) is doing? I would say it is a 100 per cent (goalscoring) chance at least that is something – a situation where there is a goalscoring chance that tells the ref he has to give a red card. Because not only is Sadio through, but I am pretty sure Mo was on the other side which gives you two against one against Schmeichel. But the ref thought it was not a red card, he gave a yellow card and that was it, we can do nothing about that now.”

Liverpool are now five points clear of Manchester City at the top of the Premier League table and are set to take on West Ham United in the next match away from home.
