EXCLUSIVE: Jake Paul denies Liverpool curse and tells fans to blame Jurgen Klopp

Jake Paul has hit back at those blaming him for 'cursing' Liverpool, claiming that fans should blame Jurgen Klopp for the team's form and not him.

Paul is better known for being involved in boxing than he is football but earlier this year decided to throw his support behind Liverpool, when they were playing against Manchester City.

Fans didn't think the American knew anything about the sport and were even more annoyed by his pre season predictions for how the Premier League table would look.

The YouTuber turned boxer obviously had his new beloved Reds in top spot, above City, but the likes of West Ham and Aston Villa being so far up the table didn't go down too well with fans.

He did say that the only thing he knew with '100%' certainty was that Liverpool would be finishing above Arsenal this season, which was seen as a dig at his rival KSI.

That 100% is definitely looking less certain, after a bit of a rubbish start to the season from Klopp's side, and Paul has come in for some flack.

KSI, and others, even blamed the 25-year-old, following the loss to Napoli in the Champions League, claiming he was a curse on the club.

SPORTbible spoke exclusively to Paul and he claims that those accusations are only because people like to use him as a punching bag, and thrown shade at Klopp.

"I think it's funny, you know, I don't think there's such thing as curses and all of that.

"But it's, people are just expressing themselves in their emotion and they want me to be the punching bag. 

"You know what's new? Let's make Jake Paul the punching bag and the hated guy and take it all out on him. Real original guys couldn't think of couldn't think of anything more clever.

"I would blame Jurgen Klopp not me. I have nothing to do with this."

Liverpool will be hoping that they aren't cursed, because it will make turning their form around a lot easier if there aren't mystical powers at play.

The Champions League runners up were once again expected to be challenging City for the title but have already dropped points in four games.

Their only loss in the league has been to Manchester United, one of a number of games Virgil van Dijk was criticised for, but they've also drawn with Fulham, Crystal Palace and Everton.

They have had some issues with new boy Darwin Nunez adapting to life in the Premier League so far, especially after his sending off against Crystal Palace, all Jake Paul's fault.

But it's not just them he's cursed, with even former Reds' players suffering, as it's been claimed that Sadio Mane is 'not interested' at Bayern Munich, and struggling to integrate.
