Jurgen Klopp handed touchline ban as FA win appeal over red card

Klopp was sent off for confronting the assistant referee and he has now been banned

In a statement, the FA confirmed: “An independent appeal board has allowed the FA’s appeal against an independent regulatory commission’s sanction in relation to the recent case involving Jürgen Klopp.

“As a result, the Liverpool manager has been suspended from the touchline for one match with immediate effect, fined £30,000, and warned as to his future conduct. Klopp had previously admitted that he breached FA Rule E3 during their Premier League match against Manchester City and received a sanction of £30,000.”

Klopp had apologised to the officials after the City game and said it was right he was dismissed for his protests after they ignored what he felt was a foul on Mohamed Salah.

The day after his red card, he stated: “I know what I said, and I know that saying that, but from a further distance and with a different face, it would have been completely fine. I said ‘how can you not, how can you not?’

“I think the most expensive face, I’m not sure in the world, but at least here. I think it’s a lot of money but I heard it will be invested for something good, and that’s fine.”
