Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo has defended Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp after he received an FA charge for his celebrations against Everton.

Skysports write that Klopp ran onto the Anfield pitch and hugged goalkeeper Alisson after Divock Origi’s dramatic 96th-minute winner on Sunday.

Espirito Santo is no stranger to a joyous celebration, having infamously upset Cardiff City boss Neil Warnock last season for what he deemed to be disrespectful behaviour.

The 44-year-old also ran onto the pitch after his team beat Middlesbrough on the way to promotion last term.

The Portuguese, who was speaking ahead of tomorrow night’s clash with Chelsea at Molineux, believes that managers should be able to react in the same way as players.

He said:

Managers must be considered almost as if they are playing in the game. Let’s be reasonable enough to know that managers are also part of the game. It’s not a lack of respect. Football is joyous, so let’s try to enjoy it.

Wolves have lost five of their last six Premier League matches and will be keen to find a win against Maurizio Sarri’s men tomorrow.
