BANNED! FA appeal successful against Klopp as Liverpool 'dismayed' by Southampton suspension

The FA have successfully had Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp BANNED for their clash with Southampton.

The Reds manager shouted in the face of a match official during his team’s clash against Manchester City last month and appeared to have escaped with only a small fine.

But he will now be forced to watch Liverpool’s final game before the World Cup break against Southampton from the stands.

But Liverpool have been left dismayed at the timing of the decision, according to The Times.

They were only alerted of Klopp’s ban at 6pm – just 21 hours before the match.

The German will now have to sit in the Anfield stands for the game rather than his usual position in the dugout.

Klopp was originally fined £30,000 independent regulatory commission.

But the FA believed a fine was too lenient after Klopp launched a tirade in the direction of assistant referee Gary Beswick.

The FA launched its appeal last Friday that was heard by an independent appeal board.

English football’s governing body launched the “Enough is Enough” campaign earlier this season which looked to tackle anti-social behaviour at grass-roots football and said at the time that top-level football figures should set the example.
