Jurgen Klopp received a red card during Liverpool’s game against Man City, and the Football Association (FA) is asking for a stiffer punishment. In October, when his team defeated City 1-0, Klopp was dismissed for arguing with referees. The independent Regulatory Commission fined him £30,000 but spared him a touchline suspension. It was announced on Friday that the FA has opted to appeal the penalty. FA will penalize Klopp.
After reading its written justifications, the FA can confirm that it is contesting the sentence imposed by the Independent Regulatory Commission in connection with the current matter involving Jurgen Klopp. Jurgen Klopp was given a £30,000 fine by the Independent Regulatory Commission for breaking FA Rule E3 during Liverpool FC’s Premier League match against Manchester City FC on Sunday, October 16, 2022.
The governing body appears to be pressing for the Liverpool manager to sit out matches, although it is unclear when the German will learn whether or not he will be given a temporary suspension. When Liverpool plays Tottenham in the Premier League this weekend, Klopp will be permitted to oversee his team from the bench.
