London: Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp faces a touchline ban or a fine after being charged by the Football Association for comments he made about referee Kevin Friend after his side’s Premier League clash at West Ham on February 4. Klopp intimated after the 1-1 draw that Friend’s second half performance had been affected by an assistant referee’s mistake for Sadio Mane’s opening goal. Mane’s goal stood at the London Stadium despite James Milner being clearly offside in the build-up before Michail Antonio’s equaliser cost Liverpool two points in the title race.

“As a human being, if I know I have made a big mistake in the first half, I don’t want to open the gap any more,” Klopp said after the game. “Referees are obviously human beings, and I understand that, but I didn’t during the game because I had no clue that our goal was offside.”
