Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp revisited his previous complaints against Manchester United and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer regarding the number of penalties that they have received in the Premier League. This comes as Liverpool is set to pay Manchester United a visit during their Premier League clash on Sunday.

Over the last Premier League season, Manchester United was awarded 11 penalty kicks in comparison to Liverpool’s six. This season, however, both teams are level with just one spot-kick apiece.

Still, Klopp reiterated his belief that the Red Devils were awarded a disproportionate amount of penalties while speaking at a press conference on Friday.

“They are really good, they go in the box, they have these kinds of situations. But we have them as well and got not even a similar amount of penalties. But it’s facts, it’s done. Nothing else to say about it,” an angered Klopp stated.

The Liverpool manager first ignited his penalty row against Man Utd last January, when the referee refused to award what Klopp believed to be a clear penalty during a loss to Southampton. This was the moment that he infamously claimed that Man Utd “had more penalties in two years than I had in five-and-a-half years.”
