Klopp wants replay, Bajcetic absent & Trent looks to future – Latest LFC News

We’ve said it before, but there is never a dull day following this football club! We’ve got explosive quotes from the boss, training pictures ahead of Union SG and plenty more to sink your teeth into in Wednesday’s news.


Klopp wants Tottenham replay

Well, we’re not sure we saw this coming!

Jurgen Klopp was always going to be asked about the errors which led to Luis Diaz‘s strike against Tottenham being chalked off, but his response in his pre-Union SG press conference was to call for a replay.

The VAR audio from the incident was released on Tuesday evening following a formal request from Liverpool for it to be made available.

Now, the Reds boss has insisted that the “only outcome should be a replay” and that and that the mistake must be dealt with in a “proper way.”

His request even came as a surprise to some at the football club, who had almost immediately played down the chances of asking for a replay after the game.

We have put together every word Klopp said about wanting the match to be played again to save you the hassle of finding it for yourself!
