The German has been handed a two-game suspension and a £75,000 fine by the English Football Association (FA).

The FA has suspended Jurgen Klopp from the touchline for two games and fined the Liverpool manager £75,000 for his post-match comments against Tottenham on April 30.

Despite Liverpool winning the contest 4-3 at Anfield, Klopp went ahead and accused the referee, Paul Tierney, of having it out for his team.

The referee’s body has reviewed the audio and determined Tierney acted professionally, prompting the FA to ban Klopp from the touchline.

The 55-year-old won’t take charge of Liverpool for Saturday’s home game against Aston Villa, but the FA has suspended his ban for the second match until the end of the 2023/24 season – so long as he doesn’t break the FA rule E3 again.

Liverpool enter the weekend up in fifth place in the Premier League table, one point outside the top four.
