Jurgen Klopp’s Thoughts on VAR Debacle at Tottenham
The VAR debacle at Tottenham has sparked quite the debate, and Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has added to it. On Wednesday, Klopp spoke of wanting a replay after the incident but, in the same breath, acknowledged “common sense” would have been the best solution.
Klopp understands that no one wants to be in the middle of all the attention for all the wrong reasons. He believes that if this were to happen again, the only outcome should be a replay. However, he also believes that common sense should be used to sort out the situation in the moment.
Klopp’s Solution for VAR Mistakes
Klopp believes that if VAR mistakes are made, the officials should recognize their mistake and make the necessary decision to fix it in the moment. He suggests that the referee should bring both coaches together and say, “We made a mistake, but we can sort it. Let Liverpool score a goal and we start from there.”
Klopp believes that this would be a big improvement over having to replay the game. He also believes that this would prevent similar mistakes from happening in the future.
Klopp’s View on the Tottenham Incident
Klopp believes that what makes the Tottenham incident even more special is that Liverpool conceded two minutes after they scored a regular goal. He believes that if the goal had counted, the game would have started differently.
Klopp is not angry with any of the officials involved in the incident. He believes that something needs to be done about VAR chaos and that it should be corrected in the moment. He believes that if this were to happen again, officials should be given the chance to use common sense to sort out the situation and prevent similar mistakes from happening in the future.
