Jurgen Klopp was challenged on his thoughts that journalists hadn’t done enough to criticise the decision to award the World Cup to Qatar.
The German stuck to his guns regardless, calling out the tactic to put pressure on footballers to act as forces of accountability ahead of and during their stay in the Middle East.
The uncomfortable reality for many will be that the Liverpool boss is absolutely spot-on and acknowledgment of the harsh realities within the nation, whilst still necessary, comes far too late.
