Mark Goldbridge defends Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp after ‘joke’ red card

Manchester United fan Mark Golbridge has slammed Anthony Taylor for giving Jurgen Klopp a red card at Anfield.

The content creator gave an unbiased opinion against his rival club Liverpool after the referee, in their 1-0 win over Manchester City, sent the German coach to the stands. Klopp had been remonstrating after Bernando Silva appeared to pull down Mohamed Salah by the shirt in front of the linesman but play continued.

The coach’s frustrations went above and beyond, according to Taylor, who showed Klopp the red card. And ardent United fan Goldbridge sided with Liverpool, tweeting: “Antony Taylor always has to make t*t about him. That red for Klopp is a joke. Manager's aren't allowed to show passion anymore…”

After the game, Klopp was asked his thoughts about the decision to send him off, to which he conceded that he had ‘lost it’ and therefore deserved his red card.

“The red card was my fault. I went over the top in the moment but I don’t think I was disrespectful to anyone,” said the Reds boss.

Do you agree with Mark Goldbridge's assessment? Let us know in the comments section below.

“When you look at the pictures back I know myself at 55 years old the way I look in these moments is already worth a red card.

“I lost it in that moment and that is not OK but a little bit of an excuse. I would like to mention how can you not whistle that foul? How on earth is that possible?”

Taylor had been quite lenient throughout the contest, perhaps in the knowledge that the encounter between the two would be a heated rivalry.

City boss Pep Guardiola was furious that Taylor had overturned Phil Foden’s goal after the official was told to review the pitchside monitor for Erling Haaland’s foul on Fabinho in the build-up.

“This is Anfield, every time you come here lately unfortunately this is Anfield,” said the Spaniard.
