Jurgen Klopp charged by FA for derby celebration

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has been charged for running on to the pitch when he celebrated his side’s derby winner over Everton on Sunday.

The German manager was ecstatic with Divock Origi’s stoppage-time header, dashing from the touchline to hug Reds goalkeeper Alisson Becker.

He apologised for his actions but the Football Association announced on Monday afternoon that he had been charged with misconduct.

Klopp has until 6pm on Thursday to respond to the charge.

The Liverpool boss said after the match: “I didn’t want to run. It was not in my plan.

“I didn’t want to run to Ali, I couldn’t stop obviously. Not cool, but it happened. The more important things happened during the 95 minutes.

Klopp says he apologised to Silva but the Portuguese claims he didn’t hear any apology

“Immediately after the game I apologised to (Everton boss) Marco Silva when we spoke to each other.”

Silva said he did not hear an apology from Klopp, and added: “To be honest I didn’t see (Klopp’s run). I don’t know what he did and the way he did it.

“It was a lucky day for him this afternoon but that is football. I don’t think he expected anything like that either.

“I cannot say it was disrespectful because I didn’t see, when I see that moment maybe I can speak more about that situation.”
