Jurgen Klopp has been charged by the Football Association (FA) for his actions during Liverpool’s Premier League victory over Manchester City on Sunday.
The Reds manager was red-carded late as his side won 1-0 at Anfield after he criticized the assistant referee when Mohamed Salah failed to call a foul at the touchline.
Klopp took credit in his post-match comments, admitting he overstepped the mark by being sent into the stands by referee Anthony Taylor.
The 55-year-old is allowed to stay in the dugout ahead of Liverpool’s next match against West Ham, but in the meantime he was given a response before the end of the week to a formal charge of “improper” behavior.
“Jürgen Klopp has been charged with violating FA E3 rule following the Premier League game between Liverpool and Manchester City on Sunday (10/16/22),” the FA said in a statement.
“It is alleged that the behavior of the Liverpool manager in the 86th minute of this game was inappropriate and he has until Friday (10/21/22) to respond.”
