Klopp Banned From Gunners Game

Uefa have extended Jurgen Klopp’s pitch-side ban for an additional game.

The Borussia Dortmund manager was forced to watch his team’s demolition of Marseille from the stands on Tuesday night.

He was being punished for his aggressive confrontation with the match officials during Dortmund’s defeat to Napoli in their first Champions League group stage game of the season.

Klopp was right, and Dortmund did not need him in the dugout to see out the victory.

But he did admit after the game that he was distinctly uncomfortable on the fringes of the action, suggesting the punishment was sufficient.

"I don’t need that all the time," he said.

However, Uefa has decided that Klopp still needs to pay for his indiscretion, and he will now be forced to watch Dortmund’s away game against Arsenal from the executive suite at the Emirates, with his assistant, Zeljko Buvac left to steer the ship again.

Dortmund are obviously unhappy that their manic manager has been sanctioned further by Uefa’s disciplinary committee, and are reportedly “examining” whether or not to appeal the ban.

It is one thing watching from afar as his team swatted aside lightweight Marseille. But it will completely different when they take on the suddenly fizzing Gunners on their own home turf.
