WATCH: Jurgen Klopp refuses to speak to The Sun after Barcelona friendly

New, comments

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is obviously a student of history. Today after the club beat Barcelona, 4-0, in their final preseason friendly, Klopp refused to answer any and all questions by a The Sun reporter in the post-match press conference

The sour relationship between Liverpool and British tabloid The Sun is well-known. Stemming from disgusting and completely fabricated reports following the Hillsborough disaster, The Sun have been shunned out by Liverpool and their supporters ever since and quite frankly, rightly so.

No matter what you may think of neglecting an entire media outlet as a club, Klopp has to be praised for sticking to the ways set by his new club. There aren’t many managers in the world who would put forth the effort to know the finer details of a club’s history and be willing to learn in such a short period of time. Kudos to him for doing so and I’m sure the supporters and everyone at the club will appreciate it.
