The FA decides to ban Klopp for one match
The English Football Association announced today, Friday, the suspension of German coach Jurgen Klopp for the Liverpool team, for one match, and a fine of 30,000 pounds, to confirm his absence from the match against Southampton, tomorrow, Saturday, in the sixteenth round of the English Premier League.
An argument erupted between Jurgen Klopp with the assistant referee during Liverpool’s victory over Manchester City with a clean goal in the English Premier League earlier this month, and Jurgen Klopp greatly objected to the referees’ staff, in a ball belonging to the Egyptian international, Mohamed Salah.
An FA statement said: “After appealing Jurgen Klopp’s latest sanction decision based on the sanctions regulations, Jurgen Klopp was suspended for one match, fined £30,000 and warned about his future conduct.”
The FA had appealed the decision to fine the Reds coach only, as the Football Association felt that the fine was not a sufficient punishment for Klopp’s behavior.
The German coach will miss tomorrow’s match against Southampton and will not be on the bench after the ban imposed by the FA.
Liverpool occupies eighth place in the English Premier League table, with 19 points, from winning 5 matches, drawing 4 and losing the same number of them.
