Uber reliable Liverpool FC journalist James Pearce has moved to quash rumours suggesting Jurgen Klopp has walked away from his job as manager.
In the comment section of his latest article for The Athletic. in which he backs new signing Ozan Kabak, the reporter explained he was told it was ‘complete nonsense‘ after chasing up the claim.
And that should be that! For Liverpool fans, it serves as a lesson to ignore what you see online, unless it’s from a reliable source.
It’s unclear where the rumours started that Klopp had resigned from his post, but it seems some messages were bounced around on WhatsApp until it eventually found its way onto Twitter.
Similar to what we see below.
I love when people use screenshots from a message as ‘proof’ of something happening. Just been sent this by a Manc. 😂😂😂 pic.twitter.com/8OPUVPYEOC

Mick’s response is quite healthy. He finds the message funny and immediately throws doubt all over it, including the additional ridiculous suggestion Alisson and Andy Robertson have scrapped.
To be honest, any indication Klopp may walk before his contract is up is a little disrespectful.
The boss weathered a number of spiky interviews in recent weeks, before reporters were made aware of his mother’s passing.
A poor run of form with Liverpool is hardly going to make the German buckle – let’s remind ourselves of the team he had when he signed up for the Anfield job in 2015!
I remember the situation we where in when Jurgen took over, We talked about Istanbul Rome Paris and past players, We where of the pace in the champs league place as for winning the prem do me a favour soft lad
Well champ league was won the scenes at the semi against Barca was unforgettable winning the league when in record time wooooow booooom.
So we are in a tough spot Shankly had his spells Paisley had his winter of discontent in 81/82 but won the league
Fagan had really bad spell. In 85 due to life without souness we where in the bottom three at one point after a home defeat to sheff weds 2 nil. It was and another Brucie clanger yes Grobbelaar made plenty of those
But we stood by him
Kenny struggled to fit Rush back into the team in 88/89
We won league titles and we lost games at Anfield in those titles years, Suffered shock Cup defeats lost games to relegation teams yet we just got on with and accepted, Win loose or draw we had to prepare for the next game when going through a bad spell we encouraged to defend better as a team pass the ball better as a team Yes we suffered even back in our glorious past Jurgr wants to create more memories we attack things we play our football let’s see where it takes us
