Liverpool has started this year’s Premier League not in a good manner. After, six matches, they are now standing at the seventh spot with nine points. However, recently, he raised questions on the quality of referring in the league. Therefore, former referee, Keith Hackett came up with a huge verdict on it.
He said that the current Liverpool boss might be in some trouble for questioning referees. Jurgen Klopp could be in danger of facing an investigation from the Football Association (FA). The association recently fined former Chelsea head coach Thomas Tuchel for questioning the refereeing standards in the Premier League.
“He’s going to have a difficult couple of weeks before they come to a decision.” – Keith Hackett on Jurgen Klopp
Speaking to Football Insider correspondent Connor Whitely, Hackett said: “He’s in trouble because that will go straight to the FA. You can question a decision forcibly but I think here he is bordering on questioning the integrity and competence of the match officials.”
He also added: “Therefore, I think, he’s going to have a difficult couple of weeks before they come to a decision. The FA will no doubt go through the process of asking him for his observations.” However, Klopp already slammed the poor standard of refereeing last season. He said that it only cost his team the Premier League.
“I don’t have any problems with anyone from City. They deserved it just as much as we deserved it. What comes up in a moment like that: a few things happened over the season when a few things went against us, so I was thinking on the day: Let’s hope it won’t be decisive in the end. And then you forget about it again and don’t think about it. There were really blatant refereeing decisions. You keep thinking, what went in our favour Completely without club glasses? We were lucky once not to get a penalty against us. But we were already leading 2-0. Otherwise – nothing.” Jurgen Klopp had said.
