‘The Sun’ reveals, this Wednesday, that English clubs in the top four divisions have already been fined more than €1.4 million this season for abuse of referees, including insults or aggressive behavior.
According to the same source, Arsenal, leader of the Premier League, is the club that leads this list, having been fined around 210 thousand euros. Manchester United (156 thousand euros) and Everton (131 thousand) close the podium of the highest values.
In the case of Liverpool, more than half of the value (62 thousand euros) comes as a result of a fine to Jurgen Klopp, who this season has already been fined 34 thousand euros.
The British daily also says that only five Premier League clubs have not yet been punished for abuse of referees this season, and that the Football Association, the body that controls football in England, has already issued more than 100 fines.
It should also be noted that the Premier League was the championship in England where the most money was paid in fines, totaling more than €1 million of the €1.4 million in the first four divisions. The study involved 92 teams.
