Jurgen Klopp fined £8,000 for his emotional rush
The FA promptly put an end to the question about Jurgen Klopp’s over-violent goal celebration and fined Liverpool’s manager for £8,000.
Recall, only yesterday the Association accused Klopp of inappropriate behaviour after the incident, when Jurgen ran into the centre of the field, celebrating Divock Origi’s winner, at the end of Sunday’s derby against Everton.
The German specialist was given time until Thursday evening to give his answer, but Klopp immediately agreed with the accusations. Today, the FA chose the penalty of a relatively modest fine.
The Association also warned Jurgen that a repeated offence would entail more severe sanctions.
Nevertheless, Sky Sports expert Paul Merson is sure that Manchester United head coach Jose Mourinho would have been disqualified for 25 matches if he had celebrated the goal, as his colleague from Liverpool did.
Arsenal legend believes that this is due to the fact that everyone in England, except for the fans of Manchester United, loves Jurgen Klopp. Even Everton’s manager Marco Silva had no complaints. Mourinho, on the contrary, is hated by almost everyone, even some United fans, so he would have been fined as soon as he had returned to his technical area.
