Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp banned for two games
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp will be missing from the touchline for the next two games, after receiving a two-match ban for comments he made about referee Paul Tierney after his side’s 4-3 victory over Tottenham in April.
Klopp will miss Sunday’s match against Aston Villa at Anfield, while the second game is suspended until the end of the 2023-24 season, meaning Klopp will not miss the final game of this campaign against Southampton.
Klopp suggested Tierney had “something against” the ‘Reds’ after the Spurs game.
He has also received a 75 thousand pounds fine having admitted improper conduct and saying he regretted making the comments.
Klopp was shown a yellow card for celebrating Liverpool’s 94th-minute winner in front of the fourth official and later claimed what Tierney said to him was “not ok”.
