Jurgen Klopp received a red card during their heated game against Man City. How many games will the German tactician miss?
Significance of the red card that Klopp received during the Man City game
A memorable Sunday afternoon was had by Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp as his team defeated Manchester City in the Premier League by a score of 1-0.
The German was enthusiastic as usual, but he lost his cool after Liverpool wasn’t given a free kick for what appeared to be a foul on Mohamed Salah. Even though the assistant referee was directly in front of the incident, play continued.
As a result of Klopp’s enraged outburst at the referee, Anthony Taylor was forced to dismiss him.
The former Borussia Dortmund manager eventually acknowledged that he “deserved” to be dismissed, but he was still incensed with the decision not to give his team a free kick.
In the end, it didn’t matter since the Reds managed to hold on before Klopp came onto the field to accept the standing ovation from the Anfield fans.
A touchline suspension for one game is the typical penalty for receiving a straight red card. The FA, however, had the option of charging the German, warning him, or letting him go.
A probable ban?
There is no assurance Klopp will be suspended. Before determining if a suspension is required, they will examine the referee’s report.
According to current circumstances, Klopp will be in charge of Liverpool’s upcoming match against West Ham on Wednesday. If the FA chooses to prosecute him, though, that may change.
From a different angle, their activities seem laughable. The players and management always receive severe punishment for their unethical actions, which is understandable.
But referees frequently get away with serious errors. They receive relatively little punishment. With little room for error, you as the referee should also conduct matches professionally and with integrity if you want the game to go smoothly.
