Unseen footage shows Jurgen Klopp waiting for referee Paul Tierney in tunnel

Liverpool's boss Jurgen Klopp was spotted waiting for Paul Tierney in the tunnel after the full-time whistle on Sunday evening.

The Reds were pushed to a 2-2 draw by Antonio Conte's Tottenham Hotspur's side in a thrilling fixture.

However, the game wasn't short of controversy, and Klopp fumed at Tierney's decision to keep Harry Kane on the pitch and then not award his side a spot-kick.

Klopp then saw Andy Robertson see red when he clattered into Emerson Royal in the second period.

And cameras spotted Klopp waiting for Tierney in the tunnel, ready to express his grievances to the official.

In his post-match interview, Klopp said: "Yes definitely. You can give Robbo a red card.

"It is not the smartest challenge but that is definitely a red card. No doubt about it. His leg was in the air, it was pure coincidence.

"Harry cannot judge it. If Robbo’s leg is on the ground it is a broken leg.

"We have a VAR sitting there and he thinks have a look again at Robertson again. Fine, that’s what he is there for. But what did he do in that situation?

"And then there is the penalty situation with Diogo Jota.

“Mr Tierney told me Diogo [Jota] stops on purpose because he wants the foul. First and foremost if you want to shoot you have to stop because you cannot do both.

“It is always helpful when you play football yourself. When you see the situation back (Diogo Jota’s penalty appeal), the VAR is there. Why is he stopping? I don’t understand.

"The draw is fine. We are not crazy enough to think we cannot draw at Tottenham but these situations are crucial.
