Pellegrini: Klopp is used to winning with offside goals

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is used to winning with offside goals, according to West Ham manager Manuel Pellegrini.

West Ham held the Reds to a 1-1 draw at London Stadium on Monday after Michail Antonio canceled out Sadio Mane’s opener.

But Mane’s goal should not have counted as James Milner was offside in the build-up, while Liverpool could have scored an added-time winner through substitute Divock Origi, who was also offside.

Klopp appeared annoyed at the full-time whistle and was involved in exchanges with both Pellegrini and referee Kevin Friend’s team of match officials before leaving the field.

And Pellegrini was quick to mention that last-eight tie in 2013 when he appeared in a post-match news conference.

“It doesn’t matter [what was said], Klopp is used to winning [with] goals offside,” Pellegrini said.

“He beat me against Malaga with Borussia Dortmund with a goal seven metres offside, so he cannot complain about anything.”
