Ed2 -what is the threshold for "tapping up" a player? In NBA, Magic Johnson was fined 50 grand when Lakers president of basketball after praising a player from another team. Just saw Klopp's quotes saying sancho would look good in red but not sure we could do anythin this season.

In general, just interested whether that kind of. comment would warrant investigation?

{Ed002's Note - Tapping up would relate to a direct approach. I don't know what Klopp has said but you would have to see it in context - was he being asked if Liverpool are in talks to buy Sancho as the Fat Kid From Bolton is telling everyone now.

Agree0 Disagree0

Ed002 I think he might have just been answering a question and praising him as a player and in the end he did say he did not think he would see him signing for Liverpool this year.

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool have shown no interest in him and don't have the money to pay for him unless they sell two of Salah, Mane and van Dijk. So if he is simply answering a question that is fine.}

Something like that Ed002. He said something along the lines of "he would look good in red but nobody would be more surprised than me, I don't think a transfer like this is possible". He was speaking to Bild I think.

Thanks Ed, that is helpful.
I think Magic Johnson literally answered a questions about a rival player and responded saying how good he was then got slapped with a 50k fine haha. Was just interested if that was the same. seems crazy to me!
