Liverpool have Jurgen Klopp 'problem' after source's lengthy ban reveal - pundit

Alan Hutton understands Jurgen Klopp’s emotional reaction to Diogo Jota’s late winner for Liverpool against Tottenham on Sunday (30 April).

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former Spurs and Aston Villa defender said he has celebrated injury time winners that way himself but thinks managers should show more restraint.

As shown on Sky Sports (30 April), the Reds boss celebrated Jota’s injury time goal in front of fourth official John Brooks, injuring himself in the process.

The Merseysides had conceded a late equaliser just moments before the forward netted what turned out to be the winning goal in a crucial top half clash.

On Tuesday (2 May), Football Insider revealed that Klopp is set to land an extended touchline ban for his post-match comments regarding referee Paul Tierney after the game.

The German’s poor disciplinary record is likely to count against him in any hearing and is set to result in a lengthy ban from the sidelines.

Hutton insisted Klopp will pay the price for his actions.

Yesterday (2 May), the FA confirmed that Klopp has been charged for his comments and has until 5 May to provide a response.

Hutton suggested Klopp should have learned his lesson by now.

He has been punished for it before, he knows he can’t do it,” he told Football Insider.

I totally get that it is an emotional sport. I have scored goals and jumped into the crowd and shouted at people myself, so I know exactly what it is like.

I think from a manager’s point of view you can’t be seen to do that, it does not look great or send out the right message. He will be punished for it, you can’t get away with it.

But I do totally understand the whole emotion of it. To be three up to then lose three goals and then get the winning goal, that is what football is all about. It is difficult to keep your emotions in check.

But you can’t really see the manager doing that, that is the problem.
