The 18-year-old Larouci was stretchered off the field. Larouci “was lucky” to avoid a serious injury, according to Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp.
Liverpool was furious about the tackle. Virgil van Dijk and Jordan Henderson confronted Gnagnon after full time.

Following the contest, which Sevilla won 2-1, Gnagnon apologized for the tackle.
Sports Illustrated provided a translation of Gnagnon’s tweet.
"I would like to publicly apologise towards Liverpool, the family of the player and its supporters," he wrote. "It was an odious act on my part. Whatever the reason, it’s not what should be seen on a football pitch. All my prayers are with the player and his family."
Sevilla also apologized for the tackle.
