Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp spoke to reporters in the aftermath of his side's hard-fought 2-0 win over Cardiff City yesterday, and shared what the referee told him after the game, as quoted by the club's official website.
Klopp's men made hard work of it yesterday, and were made to wait until the 57th minute before they broke Cardiff's resolve.
Liverpool eventually won the game 2-0 after James Milner's late penalty, but they were also lucky not to concede from a Sean Morrison header.
And Klopp told reporters how match-day referee Martin Atkinson told him after the game that had Morrison scored, the goal would not of stood, as quoted by the club's official website:
"I think the big chance they had [Morrison header], the ref told me it would have been a foul on Ali, so it wouldn’t have been a goal."
Next up for Liverpool is a home game against Huddersfield Town on Friday night, and Klopp will be hoping that his team blow away the already relegated Terriers.
