Watch: Jurgen Klopp Refuses To Answer Question From Sun Journalist In Post-Match Press Conference
By Gavin Cooney

Liverpool battered Barcelona 4-0 at Wembley in their penultimate pre-season game this afternoon, with new signings Sadio Mane and Marco Grujic both on the scoresheet, the latter for a spectacular header.

In his post-match press conference, Jurgen Klopp refused to field a question from a journalist working for The Sun newspaper.

The Sun has been boycotted by Liverpool supporters since their inaccurate and derogatory reporting of the Hillsborough disaster.

Klopp told the reporter that "No. It's not personal but you're still working for The Sun, right? So... That's it. You can listen and write what you want, as always".

Last week, Klopp revealed that among his first acts as Liverpool manager was to watch a documentary on Hillsborough, before elaborating further on what he loves about Liverpool:

I love this city for what they did in the 27 years after Hillsborough.

The nonstop fight for justice, the way they all stuck together. At the memorial, I heard Evertonians talking about it and how they were affected and the respect that exists.

You know, it's easy to say it's only football, but here there is so much more behind it.

In such an awful tragedy, we saw so much unity in a city like Liverpool. I don't think that's something to take for granted. There are many other places where it would not happen. That's one of the things that makes this city special.
