Liverpool head coach Jurgen Klopp has been slammed with a two-game ban for statements he made about English referee Paul Tierney after his team’s 4-3 win over fellow top-four challengers Tottenham Hotspur in April.
This basically indicates that Jurgen Klopp would not be available in the technical area when Liverpool trade tackles with Aston Villa at Anfield.
He would also not be available for the final game of the 2023/24 season for Liverpool against Southampton, meaning the German is out for the season.
Jurgen Klopp asserted that Paul Tierney had “something against” Liverpool in a presser after the match against Tottenham Hotspur.
The former Mainz 05 boss also got hit with a £75,00 fine having acknowledged his improper attitude and he expressed how he felt sorry for his comments.
The 2018/19 UCL winner was brandished a yellow card for celebrating Jota’s 94th-minute winner in front of the fourth official and Klopp afterwards asserted that what Tierney said to him was “not OK”.
The refereeing governing body in England, Professional Game Match Officials Limited, stated at the time that it “strongly refutes” any attributions that Tierney’s actions were “improper”.
Liverpool put out a letter responding to the indictment three days after the enthralling encounter.
They expressed that emotions were running high during the game and that while their manager had not tried to “question Tierney’s integrity” Paul Tierney had been involved in several “questionable decisions” involving Liverpool.
Additionally, the English Football Association said the assertions were a “particularly serious example of misconduct”.
They also indicated that they were “disturbed by the very aggressive nature” of Jurgen Klopp’s attitude towards assistant referee John Brooks.
The highly spirited fellow also penned a letter of apology, stating the statements he made in the post-match presser were “inappropriate” and “driven by emotion”.
The FA has also put out the written version of what Paul Tierney said to Jurgen Klopp when he brandished a yellow card to him, which the Liverpool boss felt was “unacceptable”.
Following consultation with the video assistant referee and after discussing with John Brooks about Jurgen Klopp’s attitude, Paul Tierney stated:
“Right, I have to show you yellow… it could be red, but I am going to show you yellow.
“He VAR said yellow. We will give you the benefit of the doubt, don’t do anything more.”
Jurgen Klopp was earlier this campaign handed a one-match suspension after he was given his marching orders against Manchester City last October for talking down on an assistant referee.
Additionally, the independent commission admitted his “poor disciplinary record” when deciding on the punishment to be given to him.
