Paul Merson, a former England international, tackled the effusive celebrations of Jurgen Klopp after the Origi goal at 90 + 6 ', which ruled the Merseyside derby. The Liverpool manager ran out of the bench and ran into the pitch to embrace goalkeeper Alisson.
Merson believes that if it had been Jose Mourinho celebrating that way, he would have a heavy punishment. "If it were Mourinho he would be suspended for 25 games," the former England international told Sky Sports.
If [Mourinho] had left the camp would have immediately been sent to the stands. We can not forget that he was sent off in Southampton for leaving the technical area, "recalled Merson.
The English Football Federation decided to open an inquiry into Klopp on Monday following the celebrations at Liverpool-Everton, but Paul Merson does not believe that the coach of the reds is punished. "It will be one of those cases where they say, 'Do not do it again.'"
