Sports Liverpool news: Jurgen Klopp angry at Burnley’s aggressive tackles during victory at Turf Moor – ‘That’s not football’ Published 6 days ago on December 6, 2018 By Frank Couper Share Tweet ‘Be careful’ Reds defender Joe Gomez was injured in one of several meaty challenges from the Clarets Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp blasted Burnley for their aggressiveness after the Reds’ 3-1 victory at Turf Moor on Wednesday night. The Reds boss was not happy with a number of the hosts’ challenges during the game, and exchanged words with Clarets chief Sean Dyche at the full-time whistle. Jurgen Klopp has words with Sean Dyche after Liverpool’s win at Turf Moor Defender Joe Gomez was injured on one of the several meaty tackles from Burnley. The 21-year-old was carried off on a stretcher in the first half and will have a scan on an ankle injury on Thursday, with Klopp admitting the problem is “probably not only a little bit”. Klopp was expecting the Clarets, who have not won since September and are stuck in the bottom three, to be physical. But believed his players should have been afforded more care and protection from referee Stuart Attwell. “I’m pretty sure I don’t make a lot of friends, but that’s not my job,” said the Reds boss after the game. “I said after the first challenge, I don’t know who did it, a sliding tackle from six/seven yards, getting the ball, everybody likes it, I said to the ref ‘it’s no foul but please tell them you cannot do that’. Jurgen Klopp was happy with a number of tackles from Burnley players “Nobody can judge that. You get the ball, nice, but it’s like bowling because you get the player as well. It happened four or five times, everybody likes it, but Joe is injured, and probably not only a little bit. “We don’t know (how bad) at the moment, we sent him home so we have to see, but it’s his ankle yes.” “They wanted to be aggressive. Aggression is a part of football. You try something and you need someone to say ‘be careful’. “There were a lot of situations, challenges. There was nothing to say ‘wow, too much’, they were normal challenges. But with six or seven yards and then (slide) these times are over. They are over. Gomez crashed into the advertising hoardings “We all want to win football games, and there are different ways of doing it. Somebody has to tell you to stop doing it, make two more steps and make a normal challenge. “The boy with the ball is a bit unlucky because what can happen is what happened to Joe Gomez. I think the referee has to make sure that things like this don’t happen constantly. “It’s not how it should be.

And he had no qualms about the approach they took. “I thought there were some excellent challenges tonight. I thought some of the timing of the challenges were superb tonight. That’s part of that front-foot mentality,” he said. Sean Dyche was pleased with his side’s physical performance against the Reds “You’ve got to win the ball, you’ve got to challenge against these boys. You’ve got to put a marker on the game – not only with good tackles, but also with good play. “I thought we were effective. We mixed it. Not effective enough, don’t get me wrong. But we’ve got to get back to being ‘us’. “The shape was really good tonight, the energy and endeavour and also the will to win because that was there right the way through the last breath.” This story was originally published by talkSPORT Share this:Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Google+ (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window) Related Related Topics:FootballPremier League Up Next Alexa Bliss cleared for in-ring return after suffering vertigo and memory loss, says WWE producer Mark Henry Don't Miss WBC will consider ordering Deontay Wilder vs Tyson Fury rematch, praise Fury and defend judges Continue Reading You may like Liverpool injury news: Joel Matip taken to hospital after Champions League win over Napoli – reports Arsenal nearly missed out on transfer of Lucas Torreira until Unai Emery called him before the World Cup Barcelona 1-1 Tottenham Hotspur: Lucas Moura strikes late to send Spurs to Champions League knockout stages Follow Us On Flipboard Magazine.
