A non-league footballer has been banned from football for seven months for offensive tweets he sent to Harry Arter.

Alfie Barker, who used to play with Hitchin Town, had mocked Arter on Twitter over the death of his baby daughter during last month's 3-3 draw between Bournemouth and Arsenal.

After winning just once in all competitions in January, Klopp's side are 10 points adrift. With only league action to focus on, the German wants one big push from now until May.

The incident led to a backlash on social media with many people coming out in support of the Republic of Ireland midfielder, while Barker deleted his profile and apologised.

Barker was sacked by his club as a result, but will now not be able to play again until August 1st.

Alongside the ban from football, Barker was also fined £250 for the incident.
