Jurgen Klopp slams a journalist for his 'EMBARRASSING question' about the safety of Liverpool fans in Naples ahead of their Champions League clash... just four months on from the chaotic scenes that marred last season's final in Paris

  • Liverpool are set to play Napoli in the Champions League on Wednesday
  • Supporters have been urged by the club to not travel to the stadium alone 
  • Jurgen Klopp has been asked whether Naples is a safe city for fans to visit
  • He was not happy with the question by a reporter, labelling it 'embarrassing' 

Jurgen Klopp could not contain his frustration after being asked by a reporter whether Naples is a safe city for supporters to visit ahead of Liverpool's match against Napoli on Wednesday.

The Reds will begin their Champions League campaign against the Serie A outfit, looking to go one step further than last season when they were beaten in the final by Real Madrid.

However, much of the talk before the game has been about whether fans will feel comfortable travelling to Naples for the match, less than four months after the chaotic scenes at last season's final in Paris, which saw police using pepper spray to try to control crowds.

Klopp was asked about potential issues for fans in his pre-match press conference, and he reacted angrily.

'That's an embarrassing question from you,' he said to a reporter.

'You want to create headlines. I really don't understand it. I don't live a normal life in Napoli. I am protected here, 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, something can happen. That's nothing to do with the city, so I don't know. But I'm not here to create headlines for you.'

The question that Klopp received comes off the back of Liverpool releasing a video on Monday which advised fans on how to remain safe in Naples.

Managing director Andy Hughes provided the message in a short clip, stating: 'Firstly, and most importantly, in the interest of personal safety, we're advising fans not to make their own way to the stadium. This guidance has come from both the Italian police and the British embassy in Naples. 

'We're asking supporters to go the designated meeting point in the port area of the city from 4pm. From there, the official coaches will take fans under a police escort to and from the stadium. 

'I do understand that fans will want to make an occasion out of this trip. However, in this case, I'd urge supporters not to wander into the city on their own, or to be wearing club colours during their stay in Naples.'
