Jurgen Klopp was captured making a relatively unfamiliar remark about the Neville brothers in his post-match press conference at the Europa League. After Liverpool won their game against Union Saint-Gilloise 2-0, Klopp seemed in high spirits.

The two Mac Allister brothers, Kevin and Alexis, made the headlines, becoming a pair of footballers representing different teams at the highest stage. Even their father was present at the stadium to witness the historic moment as he beamed with pride.

Jurgen Klopp was answering the journalists when he seemed to question if it was the first time in football that two brothers were playing against each other. The report reminded him that Gary Neville and Phil Neville had also achieved the feat.

To this, the Liverpool boss made a rather sly remark. He said, “Nobody was interested” in the match-up of the two Nevilles irrespective of their illustrious careers with Manchester United. Alexis Mac Allister recently became a World Champion with Argentina post, and Liverpool made the move for the midfielder.

Jurgen Klopp calls for Spurs vs Liverpool replay after VAR horror

Liverpool were on the troubled end of a wrong call by the VAR in their recent match-up against Tottenham Hotspur. This incident happened when the referees were captured accepting their decision to cancel out an onside goal.

Luis Diaz was onside when he scored for Liverpool, but the on-field decision called him offside. Irrespective of the officials checking the situation through the technology at their disposal, they failed to take accountability for their actions and did not stop the game. Spurs held up the game with goals for their talisman striker Heung-Min Son and an extra time own goal, thanks to Joel Matip.

This eventually cost the Reds the match, losing the game 2-1. Jurgen Klopp fumed at the PGMOL’s apology as he said the only solution was to have a rematch. Pep Guardiola recently commented on the situation, saying that Liverpool should accept the mistake, move on, and focus on the following games.
