Klopp suspended and fined for media comments



Liverpool Jurgen Klopp was stunned by the poor performance of his team

Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp has been suspended from the touchline for two matches and fined 75,000 pounds ($95,000) following his comments to the media after the match against Tottenham Hotspur on April 30, the Football Association said on Thursday.

Following Liverpool’s 4-3 victory at Anfield, Klopp accused referee Paul Tierney of having something “against” them. Tierney’s discussion with Liverpool manager was examined by the referee’s body, and he was found to have performed professionally throughout.

The FA said that the first match of Klopp’s touchline suspension was effective immediately and the second was deferred until the conclusion of the 2023-24 season, provided he did not commit any more violations of FA Rule E3 in the meanwhile.

The decision means that the German will not take charge of his side when they host Aston Villa on Saturday.

Liverpool are fifth in the league standings with 65 points, seven points ahead of sixth-placed Brighton and Hove Albion but having played two more matches.
