Klopp Surprised by Light Punishment for Referee Criticism.

Jurgen Klopp, the manager of Liverpool, was taken aback by the comparatively light punishment he received after criticising referee Paul Tierney following his team's 4-3 victory over Tottenham Hotspur last month.

In addition to receiving a two-game touchline suspension and a £75,000 (USD 94,657.50) fine, Klopp was punished for implying that the referee had something against Liverpool.

"I expected a punishment," Klopp said. "It is okay; I would like to know where the money goes. But I thought it would be more than two games."

Klopp's comments came after Tierney made a number of controversial decisions in the match, including awarding Tottenham a penalty that was later overturned by VAR.Klopp said he felt he had to speak out after the match because he felt the referee had made a number of mistakes that had cost Liverpool.

"I think it is important that we speak about these things," Klopp said. "We cannot accept that decisions like this are made in the Premier League."

Klopp's comments were met with criticism from some quarters, but he defended his right to speak out.

"I am not here to be popular," Klopp said. "I am here to win football matches and I will do whatever I can to do that."

However, Klopp is confident that his team can cope without him on the touchline.

"We have a good team and we will be fine," Klopp said. "We will just have to do it differently for the next two games."
