Liverpool chief Juergen Klopp accused of derby celebration



Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp was accused of violating his behavior in Merseyside's 1-0 victory in Sunday's derby against Everton in the Premier League, the England Football Association said on Monday.

The German ran on the pitch at a wild celebration of the 96th Divock Origi winner in Anfield and later apologized to his Everton counterpart, Marko Silva.

The win received the unbeaten Liverpool at 36 points and two points behind the Manchester City leaders

"Klopp was accused of illegal conduct on his 96th minute play between Liverpool and Everton yesterday," FA said in a statement.

He has up to 1800GMT on Thursday to meet the charge.

Meanwhile, Liverpool striker Daniel Sturd has received extra time to respond to allegations of misconduct in connection with alleged breaches of his wagering rules.

The charge relates to January 2018, and Sturridge was previously asked to respond on November 20th. FA said on Monday it had extended the 29-year deadline for England to 1800GMT on February 11 next year.

FA rules prohibit players and coaches from betting on any football activity or providing non-public items to any other person who is then used for bets.

Manchester City's former midfielder Joe Batton, who had banned 13 months to wager offense when he was a Burnley player, urged FA to change the "zero tolerance" approach to soccer gambling after Sturridge was loaded.
