Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is set to depart the club after this Sunday’s match, and in a recent interview with The Anfield Wrap, he reflected on trophies that slipped through his grasp.

Notably, he hasn’t forgotten a “crazy” incident involving Manchester City back in 2022.

Klopp’s Liverpool narrowly missed out on the Premier League title on a few occasions during his tenure. He referenced two specific City-related moments: the title-winning goal by Vincent Kompany in 2019 and a controversial handball by Rodri in 2022.

The Rodri incident, in particular, seems to still rile the departing manager. Recalling the moment, Klopp said, “We were already on the bus, watching the game on TV. The handball? It was a crazy situation. The whole bus erupted – ‘Handball!’ Then silence – ‘Wait, he’s not getting it?’”

The handball occurred during a crucial February 2022 match between City and Everton. City won 1-0, but Everton were denied a potential game-changing penalty. While the Premier League later offered an apology for the missed decision, it did little to affect the final outcome.

Manchester City went on to win the title that season in dramatic fashion, edging out Liverpool by a single point. It’s no surprise then, that Klopp still harbors frustration towards the handball incident.

While these refereeing decisions were undoubtedly frustrating, Klopp might be better served focusing on his own team’s shortcomings during his time at Liverpool.

After all, Pep Guardiola’s City managed to win five Premier League titles during Klopp’s nine-year reign, compared to Liverpool’s single championship.
