The ban was definitely for the verbal abuse, which they would have seen as worse.Arsene Wenger got a 3 match touchline ban and fine for questioning the integrity of the referee last year.......however he also abused the referee (which Klopp didn’t do), and that contributed to some of the punishment.
So hopefully just a fine and/or warning.

Arsène Wenger has been handed a three-match touchline ban and a £40,000 fine after the Arsenal manager admitted he verbally abused Mike Dean and questioned the referee’s integrity following the draw at West Bromwich Albion......
