Premier League: Klopp Slams Leicester City Midfielder For Crude Tackle On Salah

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has slammed Leicester City midfielder Ben Choudhury for his poor challenge on star player Mohamed Salah during the league meeting between the two teams earlier on Saturday.

Klopp slammed the tackle made by Ben Choudhury on Mohamed Salah while the Egyptian international was bearing down on the Leicester City goal.

He was given a yellow card but the Liverpool manager said that centre referee Michael Oliver should have sent the Leicester City midfielder off as a result of the challenge on Mohamed Salah.

The incident happened while the scoreline was still 1-1 and it was shortly after Ben Choudhury had come on as a substitute.

Mohamed Salah suffered an injury from the tackle from the Leicester City midfielder and was subsequently substituted with Adam Lallana coming on in his place.

Without Salah, Liverpool were able to win the game courtesy a late penalty scored by James Milner.

Ex-England international Milner had provided the first goal of the game scored by Sadio Mane just before the halftime interval.

Leicester City equalized through the returning James Maddison who missed the last league game because of injury.

Liverpool went on to win the game through the aforementioned Milner penalty after Sadio Mane was brought down in the Leicester City box.
