Klopp’s ban risk, Ugarte ‘watched’ & Elliott ‘driven’ by transfers – Latest LFC News

Today’s Liverpool news overview features a potential ban for the boss, another midfielder link and all of the reaction from an eventful 4-3 win over Tottenham.


Klopp at risk of ban

Jurgen Klopp could face a ban for his post-match comments about referee Paul Tierney following Liverpool’s 4-3 win over Tottenham at Anfield.

The PA news agency have reported that the manager will be investigated by the Football Association after he hinted at bias from Tierney following a series of controversial decisions in matches involving the Reds.

Klopp questioned the official after the game, saying that he didn’t know what Tierney “has against us” and accusing him of inappropriate comments when he booked the German late on.

The boss was shown a yellow card for celebrating in the face of fourth official John Brooks after Diogo Jota‘s late winner in what was the latest in a series of altercations between Klopp and Tierney.

It could leave Liverpool without their manager for a number of games as the Reds look to continue their four-game winning streak to end the campaign on a high.
