Jurgen Klopp charged by FA over Merseyside derby celebration

Liverpool head coach, the charismatic Jurgen Klopp, was charged with misconduct by the Football Association for his wild celebrations after the injury time victor.

Former West Bromwich Albion defender Jonas Olsson says he would have "knocked Jurgen Klopp down" following the Liverpool manager's celebration on the Merseyside derby. Past year it was January 1 and for me, after the season, it was maybe the game of the season because we won it with a late goal.

"I know when I did it I was not happy to have done that, so I can understand (Everton manager) Marco Silva, (then Southampton boss Mauricio) Pellegrino when it happens".

"I am very happy".

I can't see anything but a Liverpool win here. It is not like you have a normal pre-season - you play these games, you play every three days and you fly around the world, and it's just a challenge. But when I hit it, I thought, 'Never again!' and looked back to the defence. "That's what rules are for and if you break rules you have to be fined for it".

Deontay Wilder-Tyson Fury bout ends in a controversial draw
Fury-Wilder II might be the preferred choice after the unsatisfying ending to their fight Saturday night at the Staples Center. Even though Wilder made a throat-slashing gesture and mouthed "It's over", Fury beat the count and went back to work.

Saudi Arabia seeks death penalty for 5 suspects in Khashoggi killing
The resolution does not explicitly halt US arms sales to Saudi Arabia, as folks like Sen. "This case is not closed", she said. The 17 individuals will not be able to enter Canada and will have any assets they may have in the country frozen.

They're Married! Priyanka Chopra & Nick Jonas tie the knot in India
He invited the pair to attend the 2017 Met Gala together in NY - although, in fact, the now-newlyweds had been texting beforehand. They also received welcome packs which included Indian treats, shoes and an "information guide" for their three day extravaganza.

"Of course in that moment, the manager can not think of fines or not". It's the moment where it's possible to celebrate. Players celebrating with the fans, some of them taking their shirts off, Klopp or myself or the others celebrating with the fans or with one player. "If you ask me, I think he shouldn't [have been fined] but the FA has to decide what the rules are". "It's something important, this passion of the game".

Liverpool's goal came via a goalkeeping error from Everton's Pickford, who misjudged Virgil van Dijk's sliced ball into the air. We feel in a good moment and that's what we have to make sure again.

"The game was what we expected". That one is past.

Prizes include, a trip to Old Trafford to watch Man United take on Liverpool in the Premier League, tickets to Ireland's home games in the Six Nations, All Ireland football and hurling final tickets and much more. That means in this moment he is not ready, but we will see later.
