Vincent Kompany Holds Jurgen Klopp Responsible for Touchline Suspension against Arsenal

Vincent Kompany will be banned from the touchline when Arsenal visit Turf Moor. He claimed that he received a yellow card during Burnley’s 3-1 loss to Liverpool because Jurgen Klopp had already aggravated the referee. Tim Robinson issued a caution to Klopp after becoming frustrated in the technical area. The two teams went into the break level after Dara O’Shea’s header cancelled out Diogo Jota’s strike.

In the second half, Luis Diaz and Darwin Nunez scored to put Liverpool at the top of the Premier League table. It was the third time Kompany had been booked this season, leading to his ban from the touchline when Burnley hosts Arsenal. Kompany expressed his frustration, stating that the referee seemed determined to issue a yellow card to him in order to level things out. He also believed that Klopp’s booking influenced the decision.

Klopp, on the other hand, admitted that he had lost his cool and received a yellow card, but was relieved that it wasn’t a more severe punishment. Despite the loss, Kompany praised his team’s performance at Anfield, highlighting their positive moments and potential for growth. He emphasized the need to continue working and improving in order to capitalize on such performances in the future.
