Jurgen Klopp is clearly not a fan of the mainstream press at the moment.

The German tactician made headlines recently following his comments on Liverpool’s upcoming derby fixture against rivals Everton.

Speaking earlier this month about Wednesday night’s Merseyside derby, Klopp, as quoted by Sky Sports, said: “It’s always a completely different game, so I really very often don’t like the intensity of the game, it’s too much for me.

“I like physical football, I have no problem with that, we play that, other teams play that, but in that game very often people put too much in. I can’t say it’s my favourite game of the year to be honest, because of that.”

However, during a scheduled press conference on Tuesday, when asked by one reporter to expand further on what it is like to play against the Toffees, Klopp said: “No, because you are all not able to write it in a proper way.

“Nothing else to say about it – I said what I said and that’s it and from now on, from that moment on, I prepared for it as a normal football game.

“You’re welcome.”
