Liverpool head coach Jurgen Klopp has slammed referee Felix Brych for giving personal decisions upon Sadio Mane in the Champions League game against Real Madrid.
Felix Brych officiated the Real Madrid vs Liverpool first leg match of the UEFA Champions League.
In the Spanish capital, Real Madrid defeated Liverpool last night with a 3-1 win. Klopp informed the reporters after the match that he was frustrated with the referee’s decision.
Vinicius Jr had opened the scoring for the hosts before Marco Asensio doubled Real Madrid’s lead in the 36th minute as Mane appeared to be fouled by Lucas Vazquez in the build-up to the second goal. Sadio Mane was shown a yellow card by the referee Brych during the Champions League match loss to Real Madrid.
Jurgen Klopp slammed referee Felix Brych immediately after the match results during a press conference.
“The situation with Sadio, what the ref did tonight I have to say I don’t understand,” Klopp commented.
“For me, that was something personal because he dealt with the situation with Sadio, which was a clear foul like he was a diver or whatever.”
“From that moment on whenever Sadio went down, he didn’t get anything. That is not right. That is what I told him after the game, that I thought he was unfair with Sadio.”
“That doesn’t change anything at all. He (Brych) didn’t lose the game. We were not good enough to get a better result, but in these moments you need just an okay ref. That would have been enough.”
