EPL: Klopp banned for Liverpool’s clash against Aston Villa

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has been handed a touchline suspension for Saturday’s Premier League match against Aston Villa.

The ban is part of Klopp’s punishment for comments about referee Paul Tierney following the Reds’ 4-3 victory over Tottenham at Anfield on April 30.

He will also be fined £75,000, with a further one-match touchline ban suspended until the end of the 2023/2024 season.

Klopp angrily goaded the fourth official after Diogo Jota’s late winner.

And while responding to questions about the yellow card he received from Tierney for his actions, he said: “We have our history with (Paul) Tierney, I really don’t know what this man has against us, he has said there is no problems, but that cannot be true.”

Liverpool are still hoping to finish in the top four this season.

Klopp’s men go into this weekend’s game in fifth place with 65 points, one more than Newcastle United and Manchester United, who are third and fourth with 66 points, respectively.
