Liverpool boss Klopp gets PERSONAL: I will not answer that question from you - but I'll take it from someone else

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp REFUSED to take a question from an individual reporter after defeat at Wolves on Saturday.

Asked by The Athletic's James Pearce whether the team's poor starts this season were down to an issue with mentality, Klopp refused to answer.

"It's very difficult to talk to you if I'm 100% honest. I would prefer not to do that."

The German claimed that he was refusing to answer the reporter's question due to his coverage of the club.

"You know why, for all the things you wrote. So If somebody else wanted to ask that question than I'll answer it and if not."

Klopp then answered a question from another member of the press.

"Yes that's true, we had that subject through the first part of this season, now not so much. But today it was the pinnacle of our problems because in a game like this it is absolutely not allowed.

"You can criticise, you can judge us you can say whatever you want and you are probably right, I have nothing to say against that because these twelve minutes are not allowed.

"Coming here with all the things we did in the last few days and during the whole season so far what we want, and then we arrive here and this is the outcome that's really hard to take I have to say."
