Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has changed his mind on VAR after being the victim of two decisions against FC Midtjylland.

In their final Champions League clash, the Reds travelled to Denmark to take on the Superliga champions.

Mohamed Salah was one of the few stars in the line-up, which included Divock Origi, Leighton Clarkson and Takumi Minamino.

The Egypt international opened the scoring in the first minute and the signs looked ominous for the hosts.

But Klopp took Fabinho off at half-time and that seemed to completely change the game.

Over the next 30 minutes, the visitors were barraged by attacks and were lucky not to concede from open play.

In the end, it was a penalty that got Midtjylland back in the game – though it came in controversial circumstances.

Anders Dreyer appeared to be offside at first viewing when he was sent through on goal and was then fouled by Caoimhim Kelleher.

Alexander Scholz tucked away the penalty but a VAR check overturned an offside decision given by the linesman.

There was more controversy late on when Takumi Minamino thought he had won Liverpool the match with moments left.

The forward had the ball in the net but VAR ruled it out after the initial header from Mane was deemed to have hit his hand on the way to the Japan international.

And after the match, Klopp was left rueing over technology in the post-match interview.

He said: “VAR too too long.

“I haven’t seen it back and they were difficult to make but it all took three or four minutess.

“It took too long and it was really cold. I used to be one of the people who say ‘VAR is a good idea’ but I’m not sure I’d say that again now to be honest.”
