Jurgen Klopp: Alexis Sanchez was lucky to still be on pitch

Jurgen Klopp believes that Inter forward Alexis Sanchez was lucky to still be on the pitch when he received his second yellow card to be sent off against Liverpool. It was a big moment as it was minutes before Lautaro Martinez fired Inter ahead to reduce the deficit to 2-1. Sanchez was incensed with the decision and refused to leave the field before being forced to do so.

“I don’t understand why we have to discuss the red card. If you can win the ball only, if you endanger an opponent when you do it, then you don’t win the ball. If Fabinho goes in with the same intention, with the leg out, then both players get injured,” Jurgen Klopp said about Alexis Sanchez. “I think he was lucky he hadn’t got a red card in the first half, going in so high on Thiago onto his knee. Passion is good, absolutely good, but if it leads to these kinds of things then it doesn’t help.”

“The art of football is to lose the right games – I still hate it, but if there was any game to lose, it was tonight because the main target is to go through and we’ve done that,” he added. “It’s not that I’m over the moon, I’m happy we went through because when we saw the draw, we thought it was a tough one, and we deserved it over the two legs. We had some difficulties, one of those is the quality of the opponent, they are a really good team.”
