Jurgen Klopp: Liverpool manager accepts derby celebration misconduct charge

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has accepted a charge of misconduct for running on to the pitch after his side’s 96th-minute winner against Everton at Anfield.

Klopp ran on to hug goalkeeper Alisson after Divock Origi’s bizarre goal in Sunday’s Merseyside derby.

He will receive a fine of about £8,000 from the Football Association and has been warned about his future behaviour.

Klopp, who had already apologised, had until 18:00 GMT on Thursday to respond.

Speaking after Sunday’s game, which Liverpool won 1-0, to move two points behind Premier League leaders Manchester City, the German said: “I have to apologise because I didn’t want to be disrespectful – but I couldn’t stop myself.

“If I could describe how I felt when the goal went in, then I would have control over it. We don’t want to look for excuses but that’s how it is.

“The plan was not to run. When I chose to stop, I was close to Alisson. He was surprised.”

Everton counterpart Marco Silva said he had no issue with Klopp’s actions.

“I didn’t see Klopp’s reaction and if we scored that goal and had been so lucky I might have done the same,” said the Portuguese.

“I didn’t see any disrespect.”

BBC Radio 5 live summariser Robbie Savage said he had “never seen anything like it”, while former England defender Danny Mills said it was “absolutely shocking”.
