Community Shield Liverpool vs man city, referee blasted by Jurgen klopp, named

The Community Shield match between Liverpool and Man City will be officiated by Craig Pawson, who has come under fire from Jurgen Klopp.

Although the Community Shield is obviously just a glorified friendly, the Reds will officially begin their season on July 30 when they face Man City at the King Power.

Nevertheless, it will be Liverpool’s first shot at a trophy, and because it puts the Premier League’s two reigning championship contenders against one another, it will be a closely fought match.

With just over three weeks till kickoff, the FA has officially announced that Pawson will serve as the match’s manager in Leicester.

Harry Lennard, Nick Hopton, and Darren England will serve as his assistants, and John Brooks will work in the VAR booth.

Following the retirement announcements of four prominent referees this summer, Pawson’s responsibilities will probably grow when Mike Dean, Martin Atkinson, Jon Moss, and Kevin Friend all leave their positions.

Even while Pawson is not Klopp’s lone target for criticism, the Liverpool manager’s remarks about the 43-year-old in November were particularly hurtful.

Klopp charged Pawson with “hiding” behind VAR after West Ham was given a goal in the Reds’ 3-2 defeat in east London despite a blatant foul on Alisson.

“He does, but not all officials. Not all officials,” he informed the media.

“Due to the circumstances, he decides to wait to see what he says and refrain from whistling. But he undoubtedly did it today.

“Just don’t do anything, let’s see what the VAR says,” he continued.

Then two persons are hiding, and we ultimately make the wrong choice.

The VAR on duty that day was Stuart Attwell, and both players were anticipated to have more significant assignments following a normal advancement through the ranks.

Only Paul Tierney (27) and Anthony Taylor (28) of the active referees officiated in more Premier League games last year than Pawson (26), who tied Michael Oliver.
