JURGEN KLOPP will discover today if he faces a potential touchline ban for accusing referee Kevin Friend of bias.
The Liverpool boss castigated Friend after last week’s 1-1 draw at West Ham.
Klopp, 51, suggested Friend had attempted to make up for his side’s offside opener – when James Milner should have been flagged in the lead up to Sadio Mane’s goal – by favouring the home side in the second half.
He said: “I heard our goal was offside, I’m pretty sure the ref knew that in the second half.
“In 50-50 situations or 60-40 it was always a free-kick for the other team, which was hard and did not make life easy.”
FA disciplinary beaks contacted Klopp for his observations on Tuesday and he had until Friday to respond.
It is understood the German did not ask for an extension.
That means the FA must decide by today whether to charge Klopp with misconduct for implying bias or attacking the integrity of the official.
Klopp, who could get a touchline ban, will then have until Monday to respond with a disciplinary hearing then having to take place by March 4.
His Reds are next in domestic action when they travel to Manchester United on February 24, five days after their Champions League last-16 first-leg against Bayern Munich.
