Man City 2-1 Liverpool: Klopp Says Kompany Deserved A Red Card
Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp believes Vincent Kompany’s tackle on Mohamed Salah in Thursday night's English Premier League battle, should have earned the Belgian a red card.
Referee Anthony Taylor only showed Kompany a yellow, as he escaped without further penalty for the challenge on Salah.
City won 2-1 as Leroy Sane's 72nd-minute winner cut Liverpool's Premier League lead to four points.
"I really like Vincent Kompany but how on Earth is that not a red card?" asked Liverpool boss Klopp afterwards.
"He is last man and he goes in. If he hits Mo more he is out for the season."
Kompany disagreed with Klopp's assessment of his challenge which came about from an under-hit square ball from City team-mate John Stones while the game was still scoreless.
"I thought it was a great challenge, was it not? I got the ball, a little bit of the man but it wasn't naughty," the Belgium international said.
"I didn't try to injure him. It was that or let him go through on goal."
