Liverpool head coach Jurgen Klopp has been fined £30,000 by the Football Association following his sending-off during his side’s 1-0 win against Manchester City on 16 October. Jurgen Klopp was dismissed after berating a referee’s assistant when a foul was not given for a challenge on his player Mohamed Salah.
Football Association Fine Jurgen Klopp Despite His Apology
The German apologised for his reaction in his post-match comments but the Football Association was not okay with it. Klopp said: “Something snapped in that situation, I’m not proud of that. I deserved a red card.”
Klopp had been charged with a breach of FA rule E3, which covers “comments which are improper, which bring the game into disrepute, which are threatening, abusive, indecent or insulting”.
The FA said he accepted that his behaviour “was improper”, and “an independent Regulatory Commission imposed his sanction during a hearing”. Liverpool will look to build on their Champions League win and get back on track. They lost their last English Premier League to Relegation place Nottingham Forest last week Saturday.
