Jurgen Klopp doesn’t play around. He doesn’t simply dismiss false reports. He wants to crush them, to destroy them. The Liverpool boss laughed off reports about Daniel Sturridge leaving at his press conference today.
His customary loud cackle was trumpeted to wither the suggestion that Sturridge wants to leave the club because of how they regard his injury record. The journalist who brought it up seemed to shrink into his seat.
Why didn’t he just say who had reported the story instead of cowering? Odd. See the exchange below.
