Everton 2-2 Liverpool: Klopp's post-match interview after Henderson's disallowed goal


The Merseyside Derby was full of drama from start to finish.

From Sadio Mane’s third-minute opener to Jordan Henderson’s 93rd-minute winner which was controversially disallowed by VAR. And everything in between.

There was Jordan Pickford's horror tackle on Virgil van Dijk, Mohamed Salah's 100 goal for Liverpool and Richarlison's red card challenge on Thiago.

But let’s focus on what happened at the death.

Captain Henderson thought he’d won the Derby for his side when he converted Mane’s low cross.

However, his celebrations were cut short by VAR who ruled Mane to be offside in the build-up. Replays showed that the call was marginal to say the least. In fact, with the lines drawn on, it’s almost impossible to say Mane was actually offside.


And it’s fair to say Jurgen Klopp wasn’t impressed at full-time.

And you can’t exactly blame him.

During his post-match interview with BT Sport, Klopp praised his side’s performance before reporter Des Kelly moved onto the controversial moments.

“I’ve seen back the Henderson goal from the pass from Sadio and I didn’t see an offside. Maybe someone can explain it to me. The picture I saw, it wasn’t offside. It was offside because somebody decided it was,” Klopp said.


Klopp was hoping the reporter would put him out of his misery and confirm it was, indeed, the correct decision but Kelly couldn’t do that.

“We’ve not been able to work that one out either,” he admitted.

Klopp’s reaction was then brilliant.

He looked completely pi**ed off and took a few seconds to compose himself before resuming the interview.

Take a look:

He’s really fuming, isn’t he?

Klopp went on to admit he’s a fan of VAR but didn’t think it went in his side’s favour today.

"I am a real support of VAR. At Villa [last season] the armpit was offside. Now, there is no armpit offside, everyone tells me it was not offside but it does not lift my mood. We lost 1 player with Virgil and maybe another with the red card. Not our day."

You’ve got to feel sorry for him and Liverpool.
