According to Premier League icon Alan Shearer, Jurgen Klopp was fortunate to escape a red card in Liverpool’s victory over Tottenham Hotspur. Shearer criticized Klopp’s behavior towards the fourth official, stating that it was inappropriate. Shearer also noted that this was not the first time Klopp has acted in this manner.

Liverpool secured a thrilling victory over Tottenham on Sunday (April 30) despite surrendering a 3-0 lead at Anfield. They scored a last-minute goal in stoppage time to claim a 4-3 win and earn all three points. After the game, Klopp ran towards the fourth official and celebrated in his face.


During his appearance on BBC’s Match of the Day, Shearer expressed his surprise at Klopp’s avoidance of a red card. He stated:

Klopp didn’t mention it, but Tierney could have and should have sent Jota off,” Shearer remarked. “Klopp was fortunate with the way he approached the fourth official. We understand that the game can be emotional and crazy at times, and emotions were running high. However, this was not the first time Klopp has acted this way on the touchline, so he is fortunate to have received only a yellow card.”


Klopp contends that he was subjected to unnecessary treatment from the referee. LiverpoolWorld quoted him as saying:

“I don’t understand the way Tierney looked at me,” Klopp commented. “In England, there is no need for clarification in such situations, making it difficult to comprehend. I agree my celebration was uncalled for, but what Tierney said to me while issuing the yellow card was not acceptable.”


The managers of both Liverpool and Tottenham expressed dissatisfaction with the officiating in the match. They felt that Oliver Skipp and Diogo Jota should have been shown red cards for their actions during the game.
