Unai Emery rubbishes Jurgen Klopp’s calls for Liverpool vs Tottenham to be replayed

Aston Villa manager Unai Emery has rubbished the idea that Liverpool’s match with Tottenham should be replayed, telling Jurgen Klopp to accept the VAR mistake made in that match.

Luis Diaz saw a goal wrongly ruled out for offside both on the field and then also by VAR as the team reviewing the replays saw that the Liverpool man was onside but accidently told the referee to stick with the wrong onfield decision.

It was a maddening situation for the Reds as they went on to lose the match 2-1 and Klopp has suggested that the game should be replayed due to the unprecedented error made by the officials.

Klopp’s Call for a Replay

‘As a football person I think the only outcome should be a replay, that is how it is. It probably won’t happen,’ the German told a press conference on Wednesday.

‘The argument is if we open that gate, it is so unprecedented. I am 56 years old, I am used to wrong decisions, all these kind of things. But something like that never happened.

‘If it would happen again then I think the replay would be the right thing to do, or the ref has the opportunity to bring both coaches together and say “sorry we made a mistake but we can sort it, let Liverpool score a goal and we start from there.”‘

Emery’s Response

Emery does not agree, obviously agreeing that Liverpool were unlucky, but believing that mistakes are made and you just have to accept them.

‘Before when we didn’t have VAR, there were a lot of mistakes – more than now,’ Emery told a press conference.

‘Now I can accept some mistakes in VAR. They are only a few small mistakes. Of course for Liverpool it was a big mistake in the last match against Tottenham but we have to accept because before, without VAR, there were more and more and more.

‘I listened to the conversation between the referees, because it’s popular, and they were concerned about their mistake but they couldn’t react they had started playing again. It’s a mistake. I accept it. Of course, for Liverpool it is more difficult.

‘For Jurgen too it’s more difficult but I accept it. I know before VAR came in there were more mistakes than now. But you have to accept it like before if there is a mistake. So no, no (to a replay) You have to accept it like before, when we were without VAR.’

Conclusion

It seems that Emery is not backing Klopp’s calls for a replay of the match between Liverpool and Tottenham, believing that mistakes are made and you just have to accept them.
