Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has expressed his frustration with the half time whistle that went off when his team was on the attack in their Sunday game against Man United.
Thiago Alcantara had put Sadio Mane through with a nice ball in stoppage time of the first half and despite the added minutes having not been exhausted, the referee blew the whistle to signal the halftime break.
Speaking about the incident to Sky Sports after the game, Klopp said: "We weren't happy with that, as you can imagine. (It was) strange, very strange.
"I think he's through on goal if he doesn't blow. We were frustrated at half-time but still plenty of time for us to score the goal, but again lacked that quality in the last bit."
The game was to end in a scoreless draw with Liverpool pushed to fourth in the table standings after Man City beat Crystal Palace in another game which was played later on the day.
The scoreless score is the third consecutive time Liverpool has failed to score a goal something that has the team midfielder Thiago Alcantara worried despite backing their strikers to come good in the coming games.
