Mourinho happy with Klopp decision

Mourinho happy with Klopp decision”

Jose Mourinho praises referee Craig Pawson and fourth official Martin Atkinson for not sending Jurgen Klopp to the stands late on in Man United's meeting with Liverpool.

The Reds went down to a 2-1 defeat in the Premier League at Old Trafford on Saturday, with an Eric Bailly own goal in the second half insufficient to cancel out a couple of Marcus Rashford efforts for the hosts.

'I don't think anybody could have had a big argument about the draw. I saw it. [Klopp] was very upset with his player and not at the referee.

Both teams are effectively playing for second, with Man City a massive 18 points head of Liverpool at the top of the league. I reckon he would have got a penalty, but that is not the way Klopp has his players thinking. But we knew Lukaku can win headers and when he did, we were not there for a second ball.

"The Salah penalty decision was probably borderline, but I have no doubt that Liverpool should have been given a penalty when Antonio Valencia handled in the box and denied Sadio Mane a chance to score".

Former Liverpool star David Thompson has pointed the finger at Reds boss Jurgen Klopp and his management team, arguing that the club's first eleven are just as good as Manchester City's.

"The United player had time to get his arm out of the way and that was a clear spot kick for me, but Liverpool should not blame the referee for what was a frightful defeat".

'How can I be frustrated if don't create a lot of chances against a world-class team like United, ' he said. We are under pressure whether we are ahead of United or five points behind'.
