Liverpool head coach Jurgen Klopp has, on Friday, been officially sanctioned by the English Football Association.
The punishment comes on the back of Klopp’s behaviour during the Reds’ Premier League meeting with Manchester City last month.
En route to an eventual 1-0 triumph for his side, the German was dismissed from the sideline, after approaching assistant referee Gary Beswick in aggressive fashion.
This came after the latter failed to flag a blatant Bernardo Silva foul on Mohamed Salah late in proceedings.
An independent regulatory commission subsequently decided that Klopp’s transgression was worthy of only a fine of £30,000.
The FA, however, were left bemused by this decision, launching an ensuing appeal last week, in a bid to see Klopp more heavily punished.

As per a number of sources across the English media, Liverpool’s boss has been slapped with a one-match touchline ban.
Klopp, as a result, will be unable to take his place on the bench for the Merseysiders’ showdown with Southampton on Saturday afternoon, the club’s last before the upcoming World Cup break.
