The English Football Association has fined Jurgen Kloop £30,000 for improper conduct following his angry reaction to the assistant referee when a foul was not called for a challenge on Mohammed Salah in the 1-0 victory over Manchester City.
Referee Anthony Taylor showed Klopp a red card after berating assistant referee Gary Beswick on the touchline, however, he will not be banned from future matches after pleading guilty to a charge of improper conduct.
Klopp had been charged with a breach of FA rule E3, which covers “comments which are improper, which bring the game into disrepute, which are threatening, abusive, indecent or insulting”.
The FA said he accepted that his behaviour “was improper”, and “an independent Regulatory Commission imposed his sanction during a hearing”.
As quoted: “Jurgen Klopp has been fined £30,000 for breaching FA Rule E33 during Liverpool FC’s Premier League match against Manchester City FC on Sunday, Oct 16 2022.”
“The manager accepted that his behaviour during the 86th minute was improper, and an independent Regulatory Commission imposed his sanction during a hearing.”
“This sanction is subject to appeal by either Jurgen Klopp or The FA following receipt of the Independent Regulatory Commission’s written reasons.”
Klopp has since apologized to Beswick, the assistant referee.
“It was my fault but it was not that it was a boring 0-0 and I stood there and went bonkers,” Klopp said after the game.
“There is no excuse, I don’t want an excuse, it happened and it was obvious as everyone saw it. That he gave me a red card is absolutely OK.”
