Klopp ban, Jota injury & baffling City claims – Latest Liverpool FC News

In Monday’s Liverpool news round up, we have the latest on a possible touchline ban for Jurgen Klopp, Diogo Jota‘s injury and some baffling claims from Man City officials.


Will Jurgen be in the dugout against West Ham?

For now, that remains unclear.

After he was sent to the stands in the closing stages of Liverpool’s win over Man City, Klopp is now awaiting the post-match report from referee Anthony Taylor.

The observations in the report will determine whether the Reds’ boss is free to take his place on the touchline in Wednesday night’s home meeting with the Hammers.

According to PA‘s Merseyside reporter Carl Markham, should it be a standard charge, Klopp would be asked to accept a one-match ban and a fine.

But should his record show “similar behaviour” within the last 12 months, the German may be facing additional punishment.

Markham also reports that no complaints of coin-throwing or bus damage, nor offensive chanting or graffiti, have been made to Merseyside Police, who are “working with both clubs to understand a number of reported incidents”.

On repeat. All night.

Not a lot happening in terms of matches, but we’d urge you to watch the BBC Panorama documentary airing tonight on the failures that led to Liverpool fans being tear-gassed by French police at the Champions League final in May.
