Jurgen Klopp on Liverpool’s disallowed goal against Toulouse: “For me, it’s not a handball”

In the aftermath of Liverpool’s 3-2 away defeat against Toulouse in the Europa League, during his post-match press conference, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp commented on Jarrel Quansah’s disallowed goal in stoppage time which saw his team leave with no points rather than a solitary point. VAR adjudged Alexis Mac Allister to have handballed in the build-up into what would have been Jarrel Quansah’s first Liverpool goal. 

When asked about the decision to rule the goal out, the German head coach said: “For me, it’s not a handball. The ball goes to the chest and then I don’t see any contact with the arm… But I am more concerned that I would have loved for us to play a bit better. That’s my main concern for tonight.”

Toulouse’s victory against the Reds is now the fifth successive match that Liverpool have failed to win on French soil. Fans of Les Violets will be able to look back upon a historic victory against the Reds in which Thijs Dallinga stole the headlines with an impressive performance to spearhead Toulouse to all three points. Toulouse now sit two points behind Liverpool in first in Group E of the Europa League.
