The Reds manager is said to have breached FA Rule E3 and has until Friday to respond.
Jurgen Klopp has been charged by the Football Association for improper behaviour during Liverpool’s 1-0 win against Manchester City on Sunday.
The Reds boss has been found to be in breach of FA Rule E3, for his actions in the 86th-minute of the match. Klopp reacted angrily to a missed foul by Bernardo Silva on Mohamed Salah, proceeding to shout in the face of the assistant referee.
His actions earned a red card from Antony Taylor at the time, and now the FA have charged him with improper behaviour.
An FA statement read: “Jurgen Klopp has been charged with a break of FA Rule E3 following the Premier League game between Liverpool FC and Manchester City on FC on Sunday [16/10/22].
“It is alleged that the Liverpool FC manager’s behaviour during the 86th minute of this game was improper, and he has until Friday [21/10/22] to provide a response.”
Klopp is set to take his place in the dugout for Wednesday’s game against West Ham United, and the Liverpool manager was apologetic for his reaction during this morning’s press conference.
“I know where David (Moyes) was coming from, that’s clear,” Klopp said. “I still think I should have dealt differently with the situation. I do usually.
“I explained after the game, in this moment you could not bring me in this mood. No chance. But the whole game led to that maybe a little bit. The way it went, the way it was a very, very intense game with a lot of decisions which both managers didn’t understand on both sides.
“For me it was like, I don’t know, in Germany we say, ‘the one drop that made the bucket overflow.’ I’m not happy with my reaction but that’s the way it was and everbody saw it.
“I was sitting after the game in the office of Anthony Taylor and spoke, completely calmly, about all the situations. How I saw the game, how he saw the game. It was a completely calm discussion.
That’s the situation. I got a red card and now we wait for the process.”
As mentioned in the FA statement, Klopp has until Friday to respond to the charge.
