Football officials have had a hard time so far this year. Not only did Mike Dean, one of referee-doms biggest names, receive a lower league demotion on the back of some much criticised performances, but they've also suffered regular abuse from managers on the touchline.
Arsène Wenger is two games deep into his four-match ban for shoving Anthony Taylor against Burnley, and now Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is coming under fire for his treatment of fourth official Neil Swarbrick last night against Chelsea.
The controversial incident came after Simon Mignolet kept out Diego Costa's 80th minute penalty. Klopp moved to Swarbuck and started to scream centimeters from his face.
Obviously Klopp is known for his fiery temper, but is this a step too far?
