Klopp charged over derby celebrations


Jurgen Klopp has been charged with misconduct following his celebrations at Liverpool's 96th-minute winner against Everton on Sunday.

The Merseyside derby looked set to end in a stalemate until Divock Origi scored in the dying moments to hand the Reds victory, prompting Klopp to run into the centre circle.

He subsequently revealed that he had apologised to Everton manager Marco Silva for his behaviour but the FA has taken a dim view of the celebrations and have charged him with a misconduct charge.

“Jürgen Klopp has been charged with misconduct relating to his behaviour in the 96th minute of the game between Liverpool and Everton yesterday. He has until 6pm on 6 December 2018 to respond to the charge," a statement from the FA read.
