Jurgen Klopp unhappy with Napoli penalty call in Liverpool defeat

Jurgen Klopp was less than pleased with the penalty decision which helped Napoli in their Champions League group stage tie to a triumph more than his Liverpool side.
Jose Callejon went down in the Liverpool box under minimum pressure from Andrew Robertson, however the well-placed participant gave a spot-kick, and also the VAR official decided against the choice.
That allowed the scoring to open at a game Liverpool had been largely comfy, from 12 yards in, and they added a second goal to secure victory from Naples.
“For me personally it is very clear and obvious, no punishment, since Callejon jumps until he’s any contact,” Klopp said. “But we cannot change that so we have to be critical . We did well in plenty of moments, we played with with a lot of good football but we didn’t finish off.
“In the second half we had this crazy game, we were operating, they had been running. They’ve killed everybody on the pitch, started controlling and then we’ve conceded a penalty.
“Of course that doesn’t help and I have seen it now, I don’t think that is a penalty.”
Klopp was unhappy with his misfiring ahead, whose drama forced only two saves from Napoli goalkeeper Alex Meret and was way below their normal standard.
“We controlled it in moments, but we had not enough chances in the end,” Klopp said. “What you saw was a lot of admiration from both sides, we both defended well and every ball we lost, or else they lost, was immediately a threat.
“The last ball has become the most difficult ball anyway, and if you are not in the proper circumstances it is even more difficult. And so there were moments when we should have done better, for sure.”
