Jurgen Klopp has been charged by the FA over his celebrations during the Merseyside derby.
The German manager ran up to Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson even before the match was over.
The Merseyside derby was a match worth watching for all the drama surrounding it, starting from the goal scored in the last minute of play to the over the top celebration from the Reds manager Jurgen Klopp. The German mastermind was so overwhelmed with the win over Everton that he could not contain his excitement and ran over to shot stopper Alisson to celebrate even before the match was over.
According to Belfast Telegraph, the Liverpool manager has been labelled guilty for his actions by the Football Association and he has been charged with misconduct. Klopp, however, apologised for his actions after the match. He said, “I didn’t want to run. It was not in my plan.”
He added, “I didn’t want to run to Ali, I couldn’t stop obviously. Not cool, but it happened. The more important things happened during the 95 minutes.”
Klopp also said that he had also apologised to Everton manager Marco Silva. He said, “Immediately after the game I apologised to (Everton boss) Marco Silva when we spoke to each other.” However, the Portuguese manager has said that he has received no apology from the opposition manager and that he was not aware of Klopp’s actions. Silva said, “To be honest I didn’t see (Klopp’s run). I don’t know what he did and the way he did it.”
He added, “It was a lucky day for him this afternoon, but that is football. I don’t think he expected anything like that either. Speaking about the incident, Silva said, “I cannot say it was disrespectful because I didn’t see, when I see that moment maybe I can speak more about that situation.”
