Jurgen Klopp says Liverpool have overcome the controversy over the wrong VAR decision that saw Luis Diaz’s goal against Tottenham last weekend.
PGMOL admitted after the match that Diaz’s strike was wrongly disallowed for offside in Liverpool’s 2-1 defeat at Spurs, and Klopp said on Wednesday that he believed the most ideal solution was to replay the match.

However, speaking at a press conference after their 2-0 Europa League win over Union SG, Klopp said he had moved on from the incident.
“If I thought I was still there [Saturday’s] The game, not us,” Klopp said. “We finished it. We are not children. That’s it. There was no problem from the focus point of view.”
The Premier League has released audio of the conversation between match officials involved in the controversy and VAR has removed officials Darren England and Dan Cook from this weekend’s matches.
The league will broadcast the next edition of “Match Officials: Micked Up” — which broadcasts conversations between referees and VAR officials — globally on Tuesday.
Presented by Michael Owen, with analysis from head of referees Howard Webb, it will look at the latest rounds of Premier League action and may include controversial incidents from the game at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Liverpool now turn their attention to Brighton, who they face at the Amex Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
