Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp insists he has no interest in going to war with the media.

Klopp admits he pays little attention to the football press.

He told Goal, “I respect the job of journalists, absolutely. People want to be informed, I get that. Could journalists sometimes be a little bit better prepared? Yes, to be honest! They ask how you feel when you lost 5-0! What do they think I’ll say?!

“Those kind of things are not too good, but apart from that it’s just part of the business. We can talk about football. It’s absolutely fine.

“I don’t read about football really. From time to time I have Sky on or whatever, but not really a lot.

“I don’t read anything about English football, I occasionally see something about us but only if the headline is harmless! If I see a headline is going in a particular direction, then forget it!

“But I want to have a normal relationship with journalists. I don’t want to be one of these managers who is like ‘who wrote that?’ and then I will not talk to them. That makes no sense.”
