Everton boss Lampard: We have responsibility to behave on touchline, but…

Everton boss Frank Lampard says managers have a responsibility to behave on the touchline.

However, Lampard does not believe there is a link between the behaviour of elite managers and the abuse of referees at grassroots level.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp was sent off against Manchester City on Sunday for berating an assistant referee.

It was one of a number of incidents involving match officials being confronted in the top flight on Sunday.

“We have a responsibility, I understand that,” Lampard said.

“There’s also a microscope put on managers in the modern day and we’re in highly pressurised jobs. The amount of pressure we come under and the decisions that go against you can throw you.

“People talk about Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola. We all know the situation.

“If you try to draw a line between that and someone in a Sunday league game physically attacking a referee – that’s a personal responsibility of the person who has gone and done that, as it would be on the street.

“I don’t draw that line, but I understand the responsibility. I see managers in high-pressure situations handle themselves really well 99.9% of the time.”
