Klopp says Wolves scored the disallowed winning goal. Wolverhampton Wanderers’ goal from their FA Cup match against the Reds on January 7 was disallowed, and Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has commented on the incident. In the third round of the FA Cup, Liverpool met Wolves, a competitor from the Premier League, at Anfield. They were held to a 2-2 draw by Julen Lopetegui’s team, therefore the game did not go as planned for them.

In the game’s 26th minute, Goncalo Guedes gave the Wolves the lead, but just before halftime, Darwin Nunez tied the score for the home team. Seven minutes into the second half, Mohamed Salah gave the Reds the lead. The FA Cup match then concluded in a 2-2 draw thanks to a goal in the 66th minute from Hwang Hee-chan. Although the game was enjoyable, it was soured by a contentious refereeing call near the conclusion.

With a backheel goal after a corner, Toti Gomes believed he had given Wolves the victory. However, Matheus Nunes allegedly was found to be offside, and the goal was disallowed. The incident’s replays failed to demonstrate an infraction, so the VAR chose not to reverse the linesman’s judgment. However, Lopetegui and the company believed that the goal ought to have remained.

In addition to giving his assessment of the incident, Klopp said that he believed the goal to be legal. He admitted that it was unclear why the goal was disallowed but speculated that Nunes may have been offside.

Added Klopp: “I’m not sure. I had no notion because I couldn’t see it on the pitch. I considered it to be a goal. The player who might have been offside was the one in the left corner. We have a potential offside angle that I observed in the dressing room, though I wouldn’t swear to it (or however you want to put it). But if I’m not mistaken, that’s what I heard, and I believe the VAR lacked this perspective.”

The VAR’s lack of access to the proper viewpoint for making the right call surprised the Liverpool manager as well. In response, he said: “I have no idea how these things can occur, but they did. I can thus relate to Wolves’ frustration because you want to make the right choice in these circumstances, just as we did back then.”
