- Jurgen Klopp reveals he tried to calm Roberto de Zerbi down
- De Zerbi was unhappy with the referee’s performance as he thought Brighton should have been awarded a penalty.
Jürgen Klopp reveals he tried to convince Roberto de Zerbi to calm down During the game that Brighton & Hove Albion held Liverpool to a 2-2 draw on Sunday last Sunday.
Simon Adingra scored to give Brighton the lead, but Liverpool came back and scored two goals in a row from Mohamed Salah. Then, in the second half, Lewis Dunk headed in to equalize for the locals. Before the game ends, points are divided.
Klopp said: “I have to say that I respect what he’s doing so much, to the point that I couldn’t have more respect.”
“Let’s be honest. I’m a big fan of what he’s been able to do. I am a football lover. And his impact on the game of football should not be underestimated.”
“When he was a little upset, I used my maturity to help calm him down. If I were in the same situation, something would happen that would never be able to be reversed. I tried to calm him down. But I’m not sure if he wants it or not.”
“He probably told me something about the penalty. But I don’t know what he’s saying. I think he wanted a penalty. That was the situation at that time. Brighton should have gotten a penalty. And then he talked about that. But I can’t say anything because I don’t remember.”
