Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has been fined but is set to avoid a touchline ban following an outburst during his team's Premier League win over Manchester City.

The German was dismissed for a rant towards assistant referee Gary Beswick in the October 16 match that saw Mohamed Salah's strike hand the Reds a morale-boosting win over the champions.

Klopp subsequently apologised for his actions and accepted the initial Football Association charge, for which he has now been served his punishment.

"Jurgen Klopp has been fined £30,000 for breaching FA rule E3 during Liverpool FC's Premier League match against Manchester City FC on Sunday 16th October 2022," read an FA statement.

"The manager accepted that his behaviour during the 86th minute was improper, and an independent regulatory commission imposed his sanction during a hearing.

"This sanction is subject to appeal by either Jurgen Klopp or the FA following receipt of the independent regulatory commission's written reasons."
