Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has been charged with misconduct for his behaviour in Sunday’s 1-0 Merseyside derby victory over Everton in the Premier League, England’s Football Association said on Monday.
The German ran on to the pitch in wild celebration of Divock Origi’s 96th-minute winner at Anfield, and later apologised to his Everton counterpart Marco Silva.
Victory took unbeaten Liverpool to 36 points and two points behind leaders Manchester City.
“Klopp has been charged with misconduct relating to his behaviour in the 96th minute of the game between Liverpool and Everton yesterday,” the FA said in a statement.
He has until 1800 GMT (8pm SA time) on Thursday to respond to the charge.
