Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp set to accept misconduct charge after FA take action


Jurgen Klopp has been charged with misconduct by the Football Association for his manic reaction to Liverpool’s dramatic winner in the Merseyside derby.

The Reds boss sprinted on to the pitch at Anfield after Divock Origi nodded home in the 96th minute following a blunder from Jordan Pickford.

He embraced Liverpool keeper Alisson Becker close to the centre circle before racing back to the touchline delivering a flurry of fist pumps.

Managers are not allowed to leave their technical area during matches and Klopp has until 6pm on Thursday to respond.

He is likely to accept the FA charge and faces a hefty fine as well as a warning as to his future conduct.

Klopp went straight to Everton manager Marco Silva after the final whistle at Anfield to apologise for his actions.

“What can I say about it? I didn’t want to run,” he said.

“It was not in my plan. I didn’t want to run to Ali, I couldn’t stop obviously. Not cool, but it happened.

Silva played down the significance of Klopp’s reaction as he said: “If we scored that goal and had been so lucky I might have done the same. I didn’t see any disrespect.”
