“I don’t think it’s a penalty,” Klopp said. “What can I say, for me, it is clear and obvious no penalty. He jumps before any contact, we can’t change that.”
[ RECAP: Napoli 2-0 Liverpool ]
For what it’s worth: It sure seemed like both a foul on Robertson and a comical embellishment from Callejon, but we digress.
Liverpool just didn’t have it on the day, like when Sadio Mane played a terrible pass to Mohamed Salah on what could’ve been an easy 1-0 lead.
In the moments they did have it, there was Napoli goalkeeper Alex Meret making a splendid save.
“We played a lot of good football but didn’t finish it off. We controlled moments but had not enough chances in the end. We made decisions that were not right and have to accept the result. It was very often the final ball that was not right.”
Also, forgive Klopp if he has stopped enjoying the beautiful country of Italy.
5 – Since a 2-0 win over Udinese as Borussia Dortmund boss in October 2008, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has lost on each of his last five visits to Italian sides in all competitions. Accidenti.
