Jurgen Klopp says he will pay his fine for running onto the pitch “no problem” after accepting that the rule is there for a reason.
The Liverpool boss ran onto the pitch to celebrate Divock Origi’s late winner in the 1-0 win over Everton in the Merseyside derby on Sunday.
“I couldn’t avoid it,” Klopp told reporters. “If you break the rules you have to be fined for it.
“The last time I did that was 14 years ago. I’m not as quick now.
“I can say it will not happen again.
He added: “If there was no rule then managers would constantly celebrate on the pitch.
“I don’t think anyone thought it was massively wrong.
“It happened, a fine, I’ll pay it, no problem.”
