Jurgen Klopp has learnt his fate for his wild celebrations on the pitch after Liverpool secured a dramatic 96th minute win over Everton in Sunday’s Merseyside derby.
After Divock Origi scored in the dying moments to clinch the win, Klopp could not contain his excitement, left his technical area and completely forgetting himself ran to the circle of the Anfield pitch to hug goalkeeper Alisson Becker.
The Liverpool boss has accepted the FA’s charge of misconduct and has received a fine of around £8,000 and a warning regarding his future conduct.’
Although he has already apologised he has officially until 18:00 GMT on Thursday to respond.
Klopp is expected to escape a touchline ban which he will be relieved about ahead of Wednesday night’s match with Burnley.
During Tuesday’s press conference ahead of the Burnley game, Klopp said he knew the Burnley game wouldn’t be easy and he would hope the emotional side of the late drama against Everton would not have an affect on the game.
“It was brilliant in the dressing room after the game, but can you carry it for two or three days? The whole season is still there, we feel in a good moment.
“We are not children anymore, that we celebrate for five days. Burnley is a completely different cup of tea. It’s not the first time we have been there.
“Last season was 1 January, for me it was maybe the game of the season, we won that with a late goal after playing 30 December. We played at 3 o’clock, the weather was not too nice, really rough day, winning a game like that gave us a lot last year, in the second part of the season.
“We have to be ready, there’s nothing negative in winning late against Everton. I should not be concerned that we struggle to realise that Burnley starts again at 0-0 and we have to fight another 95 minutes.
“I think that’s disrespectful to my players if I tell them that. We have to be ready, 38 times in the league and as much as we can in the other competitions.”
