‘Embarrassing’: Jurgen Klopp slams reporter ahead of Napoli vs Liverpool

Jurgen Klopp has hit out at a reporter during Liverpool’s pre-Napoli press conference.


Liverpool will face off with Napoli in Italy at 8 pm UK time at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona.

As well as Napoli, Liverpool have been drawn in Group A alongside Ajax and Rangers.

All of those sides are decent, so we may see an upset or two in the coming weeks and there is a danger Liverpool do not make it out of their group, especially if they begin their campaign with a loss.

Ahead of facing Napoli, Jurgen Klopp spoke to the media on Tuesday evening.

In the press conference ahead of Wednesday’s game at Stadio Diego Armando Maradona, Klopp was asked if, in his experience, Naples was a dangerous city for visitors.

Clearly unimpressed, Klopp replied: “That’s an embarrassing question from you. You want to create headlines. I really don’t understand. Are you from Napoli? Do you think it’s a dangerous city? I don’t live a normal life in Napoli. I am protected, I go to the hotel and now you ask me what I think about Napoli.

“You know exactly what people are talking about. If ‘some’ supporters meet ‘some’ supporters then ‘something’ can happen. Nothing to do with the city. But I’m not here to create headlines for you, and if you don’t know what to ask anymore then that’s no problem. I would love to go to the hotel to be honest and concentrate on the game tomorrow. It looks like you don’t know what to ask anymore because of the question.”
