UCL: Klopp Makes Peace With Sevilla After Stormy End
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp claimed to have made peace with Sevilla coaching crew after a stormy end to the UEFA Champions League group game opener on Wednesday.
Sevilla took the lead after just five minutes through Wissam Ben Yedder before Roberto Firmino drew level in the 21st minute, and went on to lose a penalty.
Mohamed Salah put Liverpool ahead before the break, but the visitors came from behind to share the spoil when Joaquin Correa equalised in the 72nd minute.
At the tail end of the encounter, Joe Gomez was sent off by Dutch referee Danny Makkelie after Sevilla boss Eduardo Berizzo was sent to the stands for throwing the ball away when Gomez hurried to take a throw-in.
Klopp said he had made peace with the side inside the dressing room.
"It's all fine. I thought they might have been responsible for the red card. But I don't think I had a percentage of influence on his (manager's) position to be honest.
"I was not happy with him throwing the ball away but we're fine. He invited me into the dressing room and we spoke about it.
"But in this situation, I was not exceptionally emotional. It was an offensive situation for us, taking a throw-in, and somebody threw the ball away. But I didn't send him to the stand!"
Liverpool will next play Burnley in the English Premier League on Saturday and the club will be looking to redeem its image after it lost 5-0 to Manchester City.
