Wolves troll Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool over Tottenham replay claims

Wolverhampton Wanderers have hilariously trolled Jurgen Klopp after the Liverpool boss claimed his team’s match against Tottenham Hotspur should be replayed.

On Saturday, Liverpool star Luis Diaz had a goal wrongly ruled out for offside during their 2-1 defeat by Spurs.

After seeing the replays, it was clear that Diaz was in fact onside and officials operating the VAR had made a huge error.

Audio from the incident was released by the PGMOL on Tuesday evening and reacting to it, Klopp said: “Yes it was a mistake, an obvious mistake. Something like that as far as I can remember, never happened.

“Some people probably don't want me to say, but not as the manager of Liverpool so much, more as a football person, the only outcome should be a replay. That's how it is. It probably will not happen.”

Taking to the social media platform TikTok, Wolves posted a video from Klopp’s press conference plus footage from their FA Cup clash against Liverpool last season.

Wolves were denied a late winner after the linesman flagged for offside and VAR upheld the on-field decision after it was reported that VAR official Mike Dean did not have a camera angle of the alleged offside.

After the match, a camera angle provided by Wolves proved the goal should have been given as no player was offside during the build-up.

Julen Lopetegui, who was Wolves manager at the time said: “We have seen it, and the offside doesn't exist.

“It's impossible, but someone has told him that it is offside. We have seen the image, and it doesn't exist.”

To rub salt into their wounds, Wolves were beaten in the replay when Harvey Elliott’s long-range effort sealed a 1-0 win for Klopp’s men.
