Cape Town - Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has
accepted a misconduct charge from the English Football Association after
he ran on the pitch in celebration after the 1-0 win over Everton on
Sunday in the Premier League.

Klopp has reportedly accepted the charge which was issued by the FA
on Monday. The German mentor has received an £8 000 fine and has
been warned about his future conduct.
It appears the Reds boss has escaped a touchline ban in the dramatic
scenes at Anfield last weekend. A mistake by Jordan Pickford deep into
injury time saw Divock Origi get a dramatic last gasp winner.
As such, the 51-year-old stormed on to the pitch in celebration - an
act he later apologised for as he admitted he was overcome with emotion.
After the conclusion of the Merseyside derby, he told reporters:
"Immediately after the game I apologised to Marco Silva (Everton
manager) when we spoke to each other.
"I told him how much I respect his work, because it's incredible what
he has done with that team. They are just a really outstanding side.
"What can I say about it? I didn't want to run, it was not in my
plan. I didn't want to run to Ali (Alisson), I couldn't stop obviously.
Not cool, but it happened."
Liverpool are next in action on Wednesday night in the league when they face struggling Burnley at Turf Moor.
