Liverpool 1-1 Crystal Palace: Klopp reacts to Nunez red card


Jurgen Klopp provided his reaction to Darwin Nunez's red card and Liverpool's 1-1 draw with Crystal Palace

Heated moment between Darwin Nunez and Joachim Andersen

The Reds were held to a point for the second successive game to begin the Premier League season as Luis Diaz cancelled out Wilfried Zaha’s opener.

Diaz’s scintillating solo effort came just moments after Klopp’s side were reduced to 10 men due to Nunez’s dismissal for a clash with Joachim Andersen.

On his view on Nunez’s red card, Klopp said: "A little provocation here and there – and definitely the wrong reaction. A clear red card, I cannot deny that.

"Yeah, he will learn from that. Unfortunately, he has now a few games’ time to do so.That’s not cool for us in our specific situation, even less, but that’s how it is."

Klopp continued: "There must be always a first time… it doesn’t make it better.

"I haven't [spoken to Nunez] yet, but of course I will. I won't speak with him for three games? I came in and wanted to see the situation, I didn't know what happened in the game. I saw Andersen on the floor and Darwin walking away, that was my picture.

"I asked our guys and they said red card. I saw it and yes it is a red card. It was the wrong reaction in the situation. Andersen wanted that and he got it. But [Nunez] made a mistake. So we will talk about that but not yet."
