Sunderland boss Sam Allardyce is reportedly set to receive a letter from the FA warning him about his future comments after his jibe at Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp following his side’s 1-0 loss on Wednesday night.
The two Premier League bosses were involved in a heated exchange during the encounter between their two sides, with Allardyce accusing his opposite number of using foul and excessive language towards his coaching staff.
In turn, Klopp was left upset by a foul from Jeremain Lens on Mamadou Sakho that he felt deserved a harsher punishment, which essentially led to Allarydce’s response as seen above in calling the former Dortmund coach a ‘soft German’.
Although the 61-year-old revealed that the pair shook hands after the game and all had been forgotten, it isn’t the last that he has heard about the situation as Klopp laughed off the dig in his press conference on Thursday, as reported by BBC Sport.
According to The Sun, ‘Big Sam’ has received a letter from the FA which will warn him about his conduct in future with regards to discussing other individuals to the media.
It will come as an unwanted distraction for Allardyce, as his side continue to battle relegation as the Black Cats remain in 19th place and seven points adrift of safety as they prepare to face Aston Villa in a crunch clash at the Stadium of Light this weekend.
