Jurgen Klopp enjoyed a day to remember on Saturday after watching his Liverpool team record a memorable 4-0 win over Barcelona.

The performance leaves the Reds in the perfect position ahead of the new Premier League season, which gets underway next season with a trip to Arsenal.

But the German’s day was spoiled somewhat in his post-match press conference, when he was asked a question a journalist who works for The Sun.

The fallout from the Hillsborough disaster means plenty of Liverpool fans refuse to acknowledge the tabloid newspaper, who infamously published false stories about the behaviour of Liverpool supporters in the aftermath to the tragic 1989 event.

So when Klopp refused to answer a question from a Sun reporter, it seemed that the Liverpool boss had taken the stance of many Liverpudlians by turning a blind eye to anything The Sun are interested in.

But there might be more to it than that.

ESPN’s Liverpool correspondent Glenn Price has published Klopp’s full quotes and they hint at another report from the daily that has upset him.

“It’s because of a few things which will happen in the next few days or weeks,” the former Borussia Dortmund manager said.

Needless to say, Klopp further endeared himself to Liverpool supporters with his response.

Does The Sun have a Klopp story lined up?

Anyone who has ever picked up a copy of The Sun will know that they have a tendency to print, well, blatant lies.

And it would appear that Klopp has learned of a story that they are planning to print about him. Given his reaction, we presume it’s not a positive one.
