Jurgen Klopp calls reporters question a "waste of time" after tough week for Liverpool

Jurgen Klopp calls reporters question a "waste of time" after tough week for Liverpool

Klopp has previous when it comes to not being too happy with reporters questions, and he's once again gone in on one of the press.

Jurgen Klopp has accused a journalist of asking a question that was a 'waste of time' following Liverpool's dull draw with Chelsea in midweek.

It's not exactly been a great season for Klopp and his Liverpool side, and the past week has been a great snapshot of everything that's been wrong.

After taking the lead against Manchester City last weekend, they were on the end of an absolute battering, as Pep Guardiola's side ran roughshod over them.

The manager then made six changes to the team in midweek, as they played out a very dull 0-0 draw with Chelsea, in which the Blues should have won.

Whilst Virgil van Dijk was out through injury, the likes of Trent Alexander-Arnold, Andrew Robertson, Mohamed Salah and Cody Gakpo were all dropped to the bench.

In his pre match press conference ahead of playing Arsenal on Sunday, he was asked if the changes were due to the loss to City or just because of workload.

"We had a game against City, which is an influence physically and performance-wise. It is both," the German fired back.

"How can you expect I give you an answer and say "two were because of that and four were because of that". That is a real waste of time."

The former Borussia Dortmund boss also didn't sound too happy when he was asked if he believed his previous comments that the week, including the Arsenal game, would define his side's season.

"If we win this game, then we will have taken four points out of these games. This would be completely normal for us in the past," he replied.

"Most of the time we drew there [Stamford Bridge]. Last season, I sat at home with COVID. We started really well but it was a draw in the end. And losing to Man City was always possible.

"I understand from your point of view it's super difficult to find new questions every week but believe me it's even more difficult to find new answers."

It is not the first time that Klopp has been short with the press, especially when things haven't gone according to plan for his team on the pitch.

After the loss to Wolverhampton Wanderers back in February, the Reds' boss refused to answer one journalist, due to the things he'd written about the 55-year-old's team.

He was also annoyed in January about questions about his transfer policy, whilst pundits Gabby Agbonlahor and Ditmar Haman have both ended up being criticised by him this season.
