Jurgen makes bold VAR admission after Midtjylland draw


Jurgen Klopp says he is no longer sure if VAR is a good addition to the game after Liverpool draw in Midtjylland

The Reds drew 1-1 with Midtjylland in their Group D dead-rubber after Mohamed Salah netted the club's quickest Champions League goal with just 55 seconds on the clock to break Steven Gerrard's goal-scoring record in the competition with his 22nd strike.

However, three second-half VAR decisions - one which awarded the hosts a penalty to equalise through Alexander Scholz, another which denied the Midtjylland goal-scorer a second and a third which chalked off what would have been a late winner for Takumi Minamino - affected the flow of the game.

Both teams have goal ruled out and hosts awarded penalty, Klopp said after the match: "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.

"It is really hard and I could hear people saying 'oh my God'. It took really long and it was really cold, which doesn't help.

"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."
