The Football Association have charged Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp with improper conduct, following his sending off against Manchester City last weekend.
The German tactician saw red in Liverpool’s 1-0 win over the reigning Premier League champions Manchester City at Anfield on Sunday but he went berserk after feeling Mohamed Salah should have been awarded a free-kick following a tangle with Bernardo Silva.
He subsequently had a go at the assistant referee, which led match official Anthony Taylor to send him off.
Klopp has now been charged with a breach of FA Rule E3, after it was alleged his behaviour was improper. He now has until Friday to provide a response, which means he will be on the touchline for the team’s next game against West Ham United in midweek (Wednesday). However, he could face a ban or a fine is the charge is successful.
Klopp has already apologized for his actions during the match. He revealed: “Something snapped in that situation, I’m not proud of that,” he said. “I deserved a red card, and the way I looked in this moment is not right.”
