Liverpool Manager Jurgen Klopp Accepts FA Misconduct Charge


Jurgen Klopp has accepted an FA misconduct charge over his celebratory pitch invasion in Sunday’s Merseyside derby against Everton, which Liverpool won 1-0

Klopp was charged on Monday by the FA, who have fined the Liverpool manager £8k.

He has also been warned about his future conduct, although is expected to escape a touchline ban.


Klopp immediately apologised to his Everton counterpart, Marco Silva, after the match and admitted his actions were “not cool” in his post-match press conference.

“Immediately after the game I apologised to Marco Silva when we spoke to each other,” Klopp said.

“I told him how much I respect his work, because it’s incredible what he has done with that team. They are just a really outstanding side.

“What can I say about it? I didn’t want to run, it was not in my plan. I didn’t want to run to Ali (Alisson), I couldn’t stop obviously. Not cool, but it happened.”
