Liverpool had to pay a large fine. English giant Liverpool has been fined for not being able to control the footballers on the field. The All Reds will have to pay £37,500 for misbehaving with the referee in the match against Manchester City. The FA announced the punishment in a notification.
Anfield, Liverpool’s home ground. It is said to be one of the most attractive venues in the English Premier League. But, it’s not because of beauty or anything else, but because of the love of the All Red fans.
But this love sometimes causes loss for Liverpool. The extra interest of the fans in the match and the ambition to win increases the pressure on the footballers. Their fighting with the opposing fans inside and outside the field was also a frequent occurrence for a time. Last year, they had trouble with Real Madrid in the UEFA Champions League. Which led to UEFA later.
But this time because of the Liverpool footballers, the All Red authorities were in trouble. The club was punished for arguing with the referee in the match against Manchester City. The amount of the fine is also quite large, 37 thousand 500 pounds.
The incident took place earlier this month at the Etihad Stadium. City’s Rodri fouled Liverpool’s forward Hakpok in the 34th minute of the match. That’s when the footballers surrounded the referee to give them a second yellow. They argued with the referee. Which the FA did not see well. At the end of the investigation, they accused Liverpool, and the punishment was announced later. Man City won the match 4-1.
