Klopp laments Mane's red card

Mane, 25, kicked Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson Moraes in the head on Saturday and was immediately given his marching orders by referee Jon Moss, whose decision sparked mass debate among the football world.

The notion of challenging the red card was dismissed as a "waste of time" by Klopp at his post-match news conference but the Football Association confirmed they had rejected a Liverpool claim of "excessive punishment" on Tuesday. We couldn't keep him - he was shocked about the situation.

After mauling 10-man Liverpool 5-0 in the Premier League on Saturday, City now travel to face the Dutch champions - who face a daunting prospect after a 15-year absence from the competition's group stage.

'It was our duty to appeal but as I said after the game.

"I thought our appeal was absolutely right because it was never we said we would appeal the red card, it was the length of the suspension".

Things got even worse for the visitors when Jesus, who minutes earlier had an effort ruled out for offside, headed home De Bruyne's cross from close range as City doubled their advantage just before the break.

Referee Jonathan Moss deemed the challenge reckless and risky enough to merit a straight red card. I don't blame the ref for the decision.

"Emre Can really struggled when he played in the middle of the back three and didn't look solid at all", Carragher said speaking on Sky Sports after the game. But after the sending off after they didn't seem to have any relation to each other, they were all over the joint. "We had to change something but they quietened us down very quickly".

"You go from being on the bench watching the game and within seconds you're out there playing". "I don't think it was a red card, Sadio didn't see the goalkeeper".

"I've had it before when you have to jump into people's feet - and you have to be fearless".
