Man Utd news: Jose Mourinho claim made by Sky Sports pundit over Jurgen Klopp celebrations


 That’s the view of Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson, who saw Liverpool boss Klopp sprint onto the pitch following a last-gasp Divock Origi goal against Everton at the weekend  The German sprinted halfway across the pitch to embrace goalkeeper Alisson following Origi’s dramatic winner  It meant Liverpool kept up with leaders Manchester City ahead of a midweek round of Premier League matches  Klopp has been charged with misconduct by the FA though the severity of the punishment is yet to be decided  The Liverpool boss did apologise in post-match comments and also mentioned that he said sorry to Everton boss Marco Silva  But Merson believes Mourinho would face a longer ban than Klopp is likely to receive  “It’d be a 25-game ban – I dread to think,” he said on The Debate. “Put it this way, if that was Jose, he’d have got sent straight to the stands as soon as he got back to his technical area  “Jose got sent off at Southampton for going outside his technical area. “It’s horses for courses – everyone loves Jurgen Klopp, apart from Manchester United fans  “It’s one of them where it’s a case of ‘don’t do it again’ – no-one got hurt and Marco Silva was fine with it ” Klopp insisted he meant no disrespect with his celebrations. “I have to apologise because I didn’t want to be disrespectful but I couldn’t stop myself,” he said “It just happened! “The game was with unbelievable intensity. Both teams had chances  “Both goalkeepers had outstanding performances. In the end it was a very weird goal  “I can’t imagine the disappointment of Everton. “But we got it and we will take it It is a brilliant night. “I’m not sure what the FA has to do in a situation like this but I will have to wait  “The plan was not to run [onto the pitch to celebrate]! When I chose to stop I was close to Alisson ”
