Michael Owen believes he will kick himself by stopping when Sadio Mané was detained by Karl Darlow last night, or at least not asking the referee for a penalty after the incident.
Liverpool drew 0-0 with Newcastle at St. James’ Park, and the post-match mane case became a hot topic.
In retrospect, it definitely looked like this: Darlow holds Manet’s feet, This will prevent number 10 from using the empty net.
The mane does not work like a person who has just been fouled. That is, VAR did not check it.
If so, it would certainly have been given.
“I’m surprised I didn’t ask the referee, screaming why the mane wasn’t a penalty. I’m surprised he didn’t go down because he’s holding his arms clearly,” Owen reported. .. Mail..
“One certainly touches and the other grabs him. It is arguable whether he used it without being grabbed there, and perhaps not.
“But whatever the situation you can’t grab someone’s foot, he’s clearly grasping his right foot there, preventing him from shaking it.
“As a center forward, what most players are trying to do is make it more obvious to the referee, which is why he was surprised that he didn’t go down.
“I need to applaud honestly. I think I need to applaud this season as players often go down when there is little or no touch.
“But if Jurgen Klopp goes down tonight, I’m sure he can’t come out and say that, but if he goes down, I’m sure we’ve won a penalty there. doing.
“Unless you go down, the referee only shows that it is virtually impossible to penalize. I said it once, and say it again, the referee you got off and it If they give them a decision, they don’t really care what they like.
Of course, this isn’t the first time Mane has been sewn together by a referee’s decision-and not the last!
But for the sake of fairness, Liverpool didn’t race again last night and actually disagrees with Jurgen Klopp’s assessment of good performance.
It was 5 days before Southampton. With Thiago in the first XI and the threat of a chasing overtaking us at the top of the table, it’s time for the boys to win another victory.
