Jurgen Klopp says Real Madrid referee had "something personal" against Sadio Mane

Jurgen Klopp slammed referee Felix Brych after Liverpool's 3-1 loss to Real Madrid in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final.

After his Liverpool team was defeated 3-1 by Real Madrid in the Champions League on Tuesday night, Jurgen Klopp lashed out at officials.


The Reds boss accused referee Felix Brych of having a personal vendetta against Sadio Mane, who was left with a lot of major decisions to make ahead of the second leg.

The Liverpool striker had a bad night in Madrid, and he was sent to the ground several times.

After sprinting past Lucas Vazquez, Mane was seen collapsing to the ground, but Brych waved him back to his feet.

After the game, Klopp was seen yelling at the referee about the match's officiating.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp said in his post-match press conference: 'I'm not sure who the ref is in today's situation with Sadio. Was it a personal matter?'

'To be honest, once Sadio went down, he didn't get anything. 'I told him I felt he was unfair with Sadio, and he agreed. 'He didn't lose us the game, but you just need an OK ref.'

Liverpool now faces a 2-0 deficit in the second leg, which will be played at Anfield next week.

They have a tradition of overcoming first-leg losses to Spanish teams, having defeated Barcelona 4-0 on an unforgettable night in 2019.

Klopp, on the other hand, isn't expecting any miracles, admitting that it would be a difficult game without the help of the Anfield faithful.

'Of course," he said, 'it's totally different.' 'If you want to relive any emotional memories, go back and watch the Barcelona game, and 80 percent of the game was, in my opinion, the atmosphere in the stadium. We'll have to make do without it.

'It's not like I'm sitting here thinking that comebacks are our specialty and that we do them all the time. We did from time to time, but there were still fans in the stadium. This time, we don't have that option. I'm not sure if we'll be able to pull it off, but I promise we'll give it our all.'
