A Sky journalist reveals what Klopp told him about the VAR situation in Liverpool “outside” of his news conference.

After the VAR fiasco at Tottenham Hotspur, Liverpool are currently trying to plan their next steps.

Ahead of the Reds’ next Europa League match, Jurgen Klopp has expressed his desire to see a Tottenham-Liverpool replay.

SkySports senior journalist Rob Dorsett was at the Reds’ press conference and revealed what Klopp told him outside the press conference room.

Thejournalist, speaking on Football Daily, said the Liverpool manager told him he thought the incident could “shake up” the team and bring them closer together.

Dorsett says Klopp obviously wants to “try to move on” with two important games coming up before the international break. “From Jurgen Klopp’s point of view, he wants to try and progress. Of course he does,” he said.

“Tomorrow he has to prepare for the Europa League match, against Royale Union San-Gilloise, and he is trying to prepare his players for that.”He told me outside this press conference room that he thinks this could galvanize and reunite his team.

“Dorsett also noted how several Liverpool players, such as Darwin Nunez, Alexis Mac Allister and Andy Robertson, shared defiant messages on social media in the aftermath of Saturday’s match.

Our point of view there is a good chance that Liverpool will unfortunately not have the chance to replay the match. The precedent it would set could open a huge glass jar in terms of pretty much every game in history where injustice has occurred.

We’ll  see if the Reds will be able to obtain some form of compensation for what happened. In the meantime, Liverpool players and staff must concentrate as best they can on the upcoming matches – and on their preparations – without losing their minds.
