Man City beats Liverpool amidst charges of referee’s encirclement

    The Football Association (FA) have charged Liverpool over an incident in which their players surrounded the referee during a 4-1 Premier League defeat to Manchester City last Saturday.

    The incident occurred in the 34th minute of the game at the Etihad Stadium with the score 1-1, when City midfielder Rodri cynically fouled Cody Gakpo.

    Just a few minutes ago, the Spaniard had already received a warning for a similar offense, but referee Simon Hooper refrained from showing a second yellow card, which would have meant a red card.

    Diogo Jota, Fabinho, Virgil van Dijk and captain Jordan Henderson ran to the official to challenge the decision, leading the FA to accuse the club of failing to “ensure that its players behave in an orderly and/or inappropriate manner”. wrong path.”

    Liverpool have until Wednesday 12 April to respond to the accusation.
