Klopp’s statement and PGMOL statement
“We have our history with [Paul] Tierney, I really don’t know what this man has against us, he has said there is no problems but that cannot be true.
“How he looks at me, I don’t understand it. But again? He was reffing against Tottenham [in 2021] where Harry Kane should have got a red card. And I love this player, crazy player and I don’t want him to get a red card, but he should.
“And it’s Mr Tierney. It’s really tricky and hard to understand.”
He added, Tierney had said to him when showing him a yellow card – which he did not give any specific information on – was “not okay”.
“My celebration towards the fourth official, I didn’t say any bad words or nothing unnecessary, which is fair. I got my punishment by pulling my hamstring. But what he said to me when he gave me the yellow card is not okay.”
Jota’s equaliser came just seconds after Richarlison had scored and Klopp admitted his team “got away with” the win.
“For a long period of the first half it was the best game we had played so far,” said Klopp. “The first half was good, we conceded a goal but it was the first time we didn’t defend properly.
“The problem is Tottenham do not change at all, they go for counter-attacks even at 3-1 down. They just defend, counter-attack and get set-pieces and that makes it tricky.
“We got away with it thanks to Diogo Jota, it makes it spectacular and everybody goes home buzzing, but I am the manager of the team so I have to mention everything else as well. In three days’ time [against Fulham] we have to do better.”
PGMOL had a statement regarding this issue, “PGMOL is aware of the comments made by Jurgen Klopp after his side’s fixture with Tottenham Hotspur.
“Match officials in the Premier League are recorded in all games via a communications system and having fully reviewed the audio of referee Paul Tierney from today’s fixture, we can confirm he acted in a professional manner throughout including when issuing the caution to the Liverpool manager so, therefore, we strongly refute any suggestion that Tierney’s actions were improper.”
Klopp’s quarrel with Tierney in Dec 2021
Klopp states that Tierney came after 2-2 draw with spurs in 2021, where kane was not given red card while Andy Robertson was sent off for Violent conduct.
“I really have no idea what his [Tierney] problem is with me, “Honestly, I have no idea. He said in the interview.
“You just need an objective ref who sees the situations and trust them. He told me that he thinks he [Jota] stops on purpose. That’s incredible.
“He had the best spot on the pitch, he was eight yards away and doesn’t give it. We have to ask him, what’s his problem.”
