Sevilla manager Eduardo Berizzo has given an odd explanation following his touchline sending-off at Anfield.

The newly-appointed Sevilla manager was sent off in the second half of his side's opening Champions League game away to Liverpool after he threw the ball away from Joe Gomez as the English defender tried to take a throw-in - having already done similar during the first half.

Speaking to reporters after the game, Berizzo said: "In the first half, we were winning and Liverpool were on the counter-attack, I did something which was not right. I threw ball to stop the advantage of a counter attack. I realised that was a mistake.

"However, in the second half when a similar thing took place and we were losing, I still decided to throw the ball away to try and make up for what I did in the first half. I had realised that was wrong and tried to do the sportsmanlike thing."

Following the full-time whistle, Jurgen Klopp clashed with the Sevilla bench as the Liverpool manager was blamed for having Berizzo sent off during the match.
