Three days after the end of the exciting fight between Manchester City and Liverpool, its intensity is not decreasing. Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp left the field after seeing a red card in that match. The FA has also filed charges against the German coach for misconduct in the match. Meanwhile, former English footballer and football analyst Chris Sutton commented that such behavior should be banned for 10 matches.
Liverpool got a great win against Man City at Anfield on Sunday. Aggressive football from both teams spread excitement throughout the match. At the end of the match, Klopp had to leave the dugout after getting angry with the assistant referee Gary Beswick and getting a direct marching order.
Mohamed Salah was dropped by City star Bernardo Silva while attacking in the match. Salah unsuccessfully appealed for a foul against Silva. And Klopp also lost his temper in the dugout in this incident.
Jürgen Klopp was also seen running and expressing his anger toward the referee. That’s why referee Anthony Taylor showed Klopp a red card.
However, Klopp later apologized for his behavior. The German coach even said that he spoke to the referee Taylor after the match, “I am not happy with my reaction. But everyone saw what happened. After the match, I sat in the office with Anthony Taylor. I sat with him calmly and talked about the whole situation.
Klopp will have to answer the FA’s complaint in this incident by Friday. Before that, Klopp will be in the dugout against West Ham at Anfield tonight. However, Sutton cannot accept Klopp’s decision to stay in the dugout.
“Klopp has admitted he made a mistake,” he said. That is what he can do. But if we want managers to stop behaving like that, then the FA needs to make sure that the penalties (are) sufficiently deterrent.”
Opposing Klopp being in the dugout for the West Ham match tonight, Sutton also said, ‘Klopp will be in the dugout for the match against West Ham. It’s not right. If such behavior is to be stopped, an immediate ban should be issued. They can be kept out for 3 matches, 6 matches, or even 10 matches.
