Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp will not be able to direct from the bench for the next and last home match of the season against Aston Villa.
Liverpool will play round 37 of the 2022-2023 English Premier League (EPL) with Villa at Anfield in Liverpool, England at 11:00 pm on the 19th (Korean time).
Klopp can’t sit on the bench today.토스카지노 According to the global sports media ‘The Athletic’, the English Football Association (FA) imposed a disciplinary action on Klopp, prohibiting access to the touchline for two games, and a fine of 75,000 pounds (approximately 120 million won). One of the two-game access ban is immediately applied to the next game, the Villa match, and the other game is suspended until the next season on the condition that the FA rules are not violated again.
Coach Klopp’s punishment was due to remarks made after the match against Tottenham Hotspur in the 34th round on the 1st. Coach Klopp, who was dissatisfied with the decision at the time, celebrated to the assistant referee after Diogo Jota’s dramatic winning goal in the second half of extra time, and received a yellow card from referee Paul Tierney. Explaining the situation after the match, coach Klopp said that referee Tierney said, “If the ceremony had been directed at him, it would have been a red card, but the assistant referee said it was a yellow card, so I will give you a yellow card.” “We have a history with referee Tierney. I don’t know what you think about it,” raising suspicions that it seems that personal feelings are mixed.
The Villa match, which must be played without a coach, is a game of great importance. 5th place Liverpool (65 points) is closely chasing the 4th place after winning 7 games in a row recently. In order to finish in the top 4 at the end of the season, expect to win all the remaining 2 games and slip 3rd place Newcastle United (69 points) and 4th place Manchester United (66 points). Southampton, the opponent in the final round, is at the bottom of the league and has already been relegated, so motivation is low, so the match against Villa in 8th place is considered the last hurdle to fill the win condition.
The Villa match is also a meaningful match. Liverpool announced on the 18th that they have parted ways with Roberto Firmino, James Milner, Navi Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, whose contracts expire at the end of the season. The last game they can say goodbye to Liverpool home fans is against Villa. In particular, Firmino and Milner, who have made high contributions so far, are expected to receive a warm farewell in this game.
