Liverpool: Fans angry with Jamie Carragher over his verdict on Napoli’s penalty

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was left angry at the penalty given to Napoli in last night’s Champions League encounter, which helped the home side on their way to a 2-0 win in Italy.

As per Sky Sports, Napoli were awarded a penalty when Andrew Robertson was adjudged to have been fouled by Jose Callejon despite minimal contact, with Klopp saying afterwards [via Sky Sports] that “it’s clear and obvious, no penalty, because Callejon jumps before he has any contact”.

Sky Sports pundit and former Liverpool player Jamie Carragher took to Twitter after the match to give his take on the penalty decision, believing the call to be “harsh” but adding that he’d want it given if the roles were reversed. [via @Carra23]

Carragher played 737 times for Liverpool in a one-club career and was nominated for the Ballon D’Or in 2005, the year in which he won the Champions League, while The Telegraph ranked him among the club’s top 20 players of all time.

Despite that Anfield career, these Liverpool fans on Twitter lambasted Carragher over his take on Napoli’s penalty:
