Two days on from telling a BT Sport reporter not to ask him “this shit” – when quizzed about his trophy hopes directly after Liverpool FC’s epic Europa League quarter-final win over Dortmund – Jurgen Klopp has again been quoted saying a naughty word in the press.

This time, the potty-mouthed German has dropped the A-bomb. Speaking to The Red Bulletin, Klopp revealed that he “would never sign an arsehole just because he’s great at football”. Klopp’s revelation about his arsehole transfer policy came as he told the lifestyle magazine about the importance of motivation, concentration and fight. A outright ban on arseholes is admirable. But is it practical? Firstly, let us just define the term for our readers who are slightly confused…
Some of the best players on the planet – arguably – qualify as arseholes.
Dan and Robbie – the best two players on my five-a-side teams are total arseholes, and that’s coming from a close friend!
But seriously, if Klopp is refusing to sign arseholes, surely that rules out a return for club legend Luis Suarez?
Suarez is a genius and one of the best players to ever grace the Premier League. But he also dabbles in racist abuse and cannibalism.
We asked our readers who else they reckon is now off limits.
Liverpool fan Mark threw four names at us, including two of Chelsea’s main men and injury-prone Arsenal favourite Jack Wilshere.
@caughtoffside John Terry, Jack Grielish, Jack Wilshire, Diego Costa.

Meanwhile, a nutter named Danny dared to suggest that Zlatan Ibrahimovic could be on Klopp’s blacklist.
Finally, Zein added Swansea City captain Ashley Williams into the mix. We’re not sure why.
