Jurgen Klopp refused to answer a question from the S*n at the weekend, because of a story the heinous rag published about centre-back Dejan Lovren’s personal life.
We won’t go into details about the article in question, as it was intrusive and offensive – and we’re delighted the manager is taking this stand.
“I think that in life – no matter how much of a public figure the person is – there are things which should remain private,” he said after the friendly defeat to Mainz on Sunday, reported in the Echo.
“Sometimes things must have consequences.
“I thought to myself, there are eight million newspapers, so what if I don’t speak to some…”
Good work, boss.
Really, we think everyone associated with Liverpool should do the same; in fact, many already do. The S*n published an apology for their covering of the Hillsborough tragedy, but it was over 20 years late. The former editor Kelvin Mackenzie still writes a column, and they failed to cover the results of the inquest on their front page earlier this year.
They’re an absolute disgrace and should be shut down, but ridiculously, they’re the biggest selling newspaper in the country.
Why people pay money to read their lies and garbage is absolutely beyond us.
