UEFA charges Liverpool after fan invades pitch, Ajax and Dortmund also charged

Steve Nicol says Jurgen Klopp can use Liverpool’s lapse against Salzburg to wake up his side.

UEFA has charged Liverpool for a fan running on the field at the end of a 4-3 win against FC Salzburg on Wednesday, with the Austrian club being charged for fans throwing objects.

The European football governing body has also charged Ajax and Borussia Dortmund after their fans damaged stadiums they visited in the Champions League this week.

UEFA says its disciplinary panel will judge charges of “acts of damage” against both clubs on Oct. 17.

Ajax faces a further charge of crowd disturbances at its 3-0 win in Valencia on Wednesday. Dortmund won 2-0 at Slavia Prague.

The Dutch champions face an additional fine for “improper conduct” of players after six were shown yellow cards in Spain. UEFA rules require a disciplinary case for five yellow cards or more.

Those cases will also be heard on Oct. 17.

UEFA also announced charges against Manchester City, Real Madrid an Olympiakos stemming from incidents that took place on Tuesday’s round of group stage matches.
