The English Premier League outfit boss Jurgen Klopp has been slammed with a fine of £45,000 for his comments against the referee, Kevin Friend in their game against West Ham, stressing that the official was bias.

The German boss had accused the official of favouring the London outfit in the game that ended 1-1 owing to some decisions he made in the game which caught the attention of the FA.

However, the former Borussia Dortmund boss was charged for misconduct and asked to reply to the charge which he has done as claimed.

He has now been fined according to a statement released by the FA. Jurgen Klopp was accused of making a statement which breached FA Rule E(1) which is against calling out a referee in the public which has the ability to affect his integrity.

However, this is the second time that Jurgen Klopp would be fined by the FA after the first situation where he was hammered with £8,000 for invading the pitch in celebration of Divock Origi’s last minutes’ goal in the Merseyside derby against Everton.

Meanwhile, Jurgen Klopp is under pressure to deliver his trophy at the Anfield as a Reds boss since he took over last three years.
