Liverpool bans The Sun from home matches

The Premier League club's boss Jürgen Klopp told reporters:

    I don't talk with The Sun anymore.

– Jürgen Klopp

In a statement, the newspaper said:

    The Sun and Liverpool FC have had a solid working relationship for the 28 years since the Hillsborough tragedy. Banning journalists from a club is bad for fans and bad for football. The Sun can reassure readers this won’t affect our full football coverage.

    The Sun deeply regrets its reporting of the tragic events at Hillsborough and understands the damage caused by those reports is still felt by many in the city.

    A new generation of journalists on the paper congratulate the families on the hard fought victory they have achieved through the inquest. It is to their credit that the truth has emerged and, whilst we can’t undo the damage done, we would like to further a dialogue with the city and to show that the paper has respect for the people of Liverpool.

– The Sun

The newspaper’s ‘The Truth’ front page in 1989 falsely alleged that Liverpool fans stole from the dead and obstructed the emergency services.
