Man­ager Klopp fined for wild cel­e­bra­tions a er Liver­pool win­ner

The Myanmar Times - - Sport -

Liver­pool man­ager Juer­gen Klopp has been fined $10,000 for his wild cel­e­bra­tions af­ter the team’s last-minute win­ner in the Merseyside derby — although his coun­ter­part at Ever­ton saw no prob­lem with them.

Klopp ran onto the field at An­field and jumped into the arms of Liver­pool goal­keeper Alis­son Becker af­ter see­ing Divock Origi score a goal in the sixth minute of stop­page time in a 1-0 vic­tory on Sun­day.

Klopp said af­ter the match that he re­gret­ted his ac­tions — he apol­o­gized im­me­di­ately to Ever­ton man­ager Marco Silva — and there­fore ac­cepted the charge of mis­con­duct by the English Foot­ball As­so­ci­a­tion.

He said “I couldn’t avoid (the fine) ob­vi­ously ... I didn’t want to do it and I can say it won’t hap­pen again. It was not on my radar that it was still pos­si­ble.”

Silva does not be­lieve Klopp should have been pun­ished, say­ing “it’s the emo­tion of the game, it’s a nor­mal sit­u­a­tion. He’s cel­e­brat­ing.”
