Jurgen Klopp was shown a red card at the end of Sunday’s powerful game, thanks to the fierce fury of referee Anthony Taylor and assistant referee Gary Beswick for what he described as the clearest free kick ever. After the match, Klopp was quick to lie down as he lost his temper.
The question now is whether he will allow the manager to be in the technical area for Wednesday’s home game against West Ham. According to The Times, it is not automatic for a manager to be suspended after being sent off in a match.
The Football Association (FA) is now awaiting referee Taylor’s report, and he must then decide whether to award Klopp a further sanction.
After a match that saw many incidents on and off the field, this was probably the easiest decision to make for the Etihad, as there was a lot to deal with at Anfield.
Liverpool issued a press statement on Sunday evening condemning Hillsborough’s disgusting chants and bullying, with ‘always victims’ and ‘murders’ among the chants. So far, as mentioned, there has been silence from the city camp on this very matter, but the association confirmed that it is investigating the matter, and that it has also received the sabotage that occurred in the stadium in form. of graffiti.
For their part, Liverpool launched their own investigation, and confirmed that the person or people who threw coins at City coach Pep Guardiola will be banned from entering Anfield for life.
On Monday, Manchester City issued a statement claiming that their team bus was attacked by Liverpool fans after the match. Liverpool got the same penalty in connection with the 2018 Champions League quarter-finals.
Also last year, there were riots and accusations after the match. A member of City’s support staff then claimed that a Liverpool fan had been spat on, but no evidence of this was found.
It is already known that an investigation is underway in the FA after the exchange of words between Jordan Henderson and Arsenal’s Gabriel at the match in the Emirates last weekend.
