Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp growing tired of VAR

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is no longer a fan of VAR following a frustrating night in Denmark as his side settled for a 1-1 draw with Midtjylland. 

Mohammed Salah gave Liverpool an early lead after just 55 seconds, a strike that broke Steve Gerrard's goal-scoring record in the Champions League with his 22nd goal.

In the second half, VAR was called into action three times, with Midtjylland being awarded a penalty that saw them draw level through Alexander Scholz. Scholz was denied the second goal with Takumi Minamio's late winner chucked off. 

"It just took too long. I think in the end, I didn't see it back, the decisions were right but it was so difficult. It took three or four minutes and it was cold for the boys," Klopp said.

No longer supporter

"I used to be one of the people who said VAR is a good idea - I'm really not sure if I would say that again, to be honest. But now we have it."

The Reds finished at the top of Group D with 13 points, two behind the second-placed Atalanta.
