Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp could REFUSE to pay £75,000 fine for accusing ref of bias unless FA say where money goes


JURGEN KLOPP has threatened to withhold paying his £75,000 fine unless the FA tell him what they will do  with the cash.

The Liverpool boss was banned for one game, with a second suspended, as well as being ordered to stump up for accusing referee Paul Tierney of bias after a 4-3 win over Tottenham.

Klopp will sit in the stand for Saturday’s final home Premier League game against Aston Villa.

While he accepts the punishment, the German could clash with England’s ruling body over his fine.

Klopp said: “I expected the punishment with all the things that were being said and it’s OK.

“I would like to know, like always, where the money goes and, if it is to a good cause, I will be happy to pay it.

“If the FA keep it then we will have to talk again because that would be pretty harsh.”

The FA declined to respond to Klopp’s comments.

But the not-for-profit body reinvests fines back into football.

Klopp still plans to be on the pitch at the end of today’s game to say farewell to departing stars Roberto Firmino, James Milner, Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.


Liverpool go into tomorrow’s clash desperate to keep pace in the race for top four.

The Reds begin the day just one point behind Manchester United in fourth.

Erik ten Hag’s side possess a game in hand, however, with Liverpool relying on help from elsewhere if they are to pip them to a place in the Champions League.
