Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is used to winning with offside goals, according to Manuel Pellegrini.
West Ham held the Reds to a 1-1 draw at London Stadium on Monday after Michail Antonio cancelled out Sadio Mane’s opener.
But Mane’s goal should not have counted as James Milner was offside in the build-up, while Liverpool could have scored an added-time winner through substitute Divock Origi, who was also offside.
Klopp appeared annoyed at the full-time whistle and was involved in exchanges with both Pellegrini and referee Kevin Friend’s team of match officials before leaving the field.
And Pellegrini was quick to mention that last-eight tie in 2013 when he appeared in a post-match news conference.
“It doesn’t matter [what was said], Klopp is used to winning [with] goals offside,” Pellegrini said.
“He beat me against Malaga with Borussia Dortmund with a goal seven metres offside, so he cannot complain about anything.”
