Speaking to the press after his team’s 1-0 loss to Southampton on Monday, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp mentioned the fact that Manchester United have received many penalties in the last two seasons. Many of them were questionable, to say the least, while Liverpool had two strong rejected claims against the Saints.
However, United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says he has no time for such matters and believes it is a way for his opponents to try to influence refereeing decisions, also mentioning Chelsea manager Frank Lampard in that context.
🗣 “I don’t count how many penalties they have”
