HERE is your tea time round-up of today’s biggest Liverpool FC stories.
Klopp Reveals Why He Snubbed The S*n
Jürgen Klopp has revealed the reasons behind his decision to snub a journalist from The S*n after the Reds 4-0 win over Barcelona at Wembley on Saturday.
He said: “I think that in life – no matter how much of a public figure the person is – there are things which should remain private. Sometimes things must have consequences.”
Is right, Kloppo.
“I thought to myself, there are eight million newspapers, so what if I don’t speak to some." #LFChttps://t.co/3x5ObqTqWk

Benteke Future Latest
The latest on the future of our unwanted striker and it seems like more bad news. Turkish club Besiktas were believed to have made contact with Liverpool over a potential transfer, but a move looks unlikely with the Turks not willing to meet his asking price.
There’s time yet.

Here’s our daily round-up video from earlier today.
Emre Can Talks Arsenal And Fitness
Emre Can has been speaking to the club’s official website about his excitement for the upcoming season and how the squad is coming together, and also provided an update on his fitness.
The German international was one of the last to join up with the squad on their pre-season tour, and he said:
“To be honest I’m not 100 per cent and I have to work hard to get there. I have been working hard to get there for next week, then we will see how far along I am.”
Could be a huge season for him.
Lallana Speaks About Mane
Another Red has been talking to the club website but this time its Adam Lallana, who has been talking up his teammate Sadio Mane, who put in a man of the match performance against Barcelona on Saturday.
Lallana has said: “I could see what he was going to bring to this team. He is different to what we have got. He is unpredictable.”
As long as it’s healthy competition.
Former Red Signs For Oldham
Ryan McLaughlin has found a new club after being released by Liverpool earlier in the summer, with Oldham Athletic signing up the Northern Irishman.
Seems a good lad, wish him all the best.
