Premier League club will reject any press accreditations for matches from reporters working for The Sun newspaper

Liverpool fans have boycotted The Sun since the false report was published on 1989’s Hillsborough disaster
Getty

The Independent understands that press accreditations from any reporters covering matches from The Sun will not be approved, meaning that the newspaper’s football journalists will be denied entry to Anfield for any matches across all competitions.

It will also be refused any access to interviews with the players, as well as manager Jürgen Klopp, with the decision believed to have come after the club’s directors held talks with the families of those who died in the tragedy. The decision is believed to have been made on Thursday night.


The Sun responds to Liverpool FC banning its reporters
The Sun ran a story on the Hillsborough disaster on 19 April 1989, four days after 96 people were unlawfully killed during a fan crush at Sheffield Wednesday’s Hillsborough Stadium ahead of an FA Cup semi-final against Nottingham Forest, with the headline ‘“The Truth”, in which it carried accusations from an anonymous South Yorkshire policeman that Liverpool supporters had "picked pockets of victims", "urinated on brave cops" and that some beat up a policeman giving the "kiss of life".

The story was published the day after Tony Bland, the 96th victim of the disaster, had his life-support switched off after suffering irreversible brain damage, and caused considerable distress for those grieving the loss of relatives.

The accusations have since been proven false, while a jury found in April last year that the 96 victims were unlawfully killed following a 27-year legal battle for justice, led by the families of those who died. Following that verdict, both The Sun and The Times, its sister title, left any mention of the Hillsborough verdict of unlawful killing off its first edition front page, a decision that was heavily criticised.

A renewed campaign to boycott The Sun increased momentum in recent months, with the Hillsborough Family Support Group giving its backing to The Total Eclipse of The S*n campaign, and it led to many retailers across Liverpool deciding against stocking the newspaper.

The false reports, the families’ claim, caused the pursuit of justice to be delayed, with the legal campaign lasting 27 years until the verdict of unlawful killing was given last year.

The Sun and Kelvin McKenzie, the editor at the time, have attempted to apologise years after the false coverage, but they have not been accepted by the relatives of the dead and the vast majority of Liverpool fans on the whole.

When contacted by The Independent, Liverpool Football Club declined to comment.

When contacted by The Independent, The Sun issued the following statement: "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."
________________

remember Kelvin Mckenzie last year going on for a minute about how duped he was and how bad he felt for liverpool fans after the fans were deemed to unlawfully killed at the inquest, then he was thown off guard and asked should the sun have put the story on liverpool fans being exonerated of any blame on their front page like every other paper did and his mask quickly slipped.

I suppose they will be paying back all the money they have taken from SKY over the years too ? The coverage was disgraceful but an apology has been given and we should move on.

I don't think the sports journalists from the sun deserve it as they are there to report on football matches and some of them are probably scousers ? or people who hate thatcher ?. Liverpool pundits are well represented at sky (both murdoch) so surprised at this.

exactly this, the majority of people there dont buy it anyway and they have been hit by the working man not buying it to have this done as well is too little too late by the club.  Hope the FA and premierleague now fine them weekly for not doing the required presser obligations, start doing this then no **** will talk to the press like fergie done to the beeb for years and again the fan suffers

i was a student in liverpool at the the time of the tragedy. 30 years later and many people wont forget, good luck to them, their treatment at the time was a national disgrace. at the time all football fans were viewed as scum by the government. mckenenzie is a scumbag who was only too pleased to be used by the establishment to spread lies.

nearly 100 people died because of police failures, that's it pure and simple, how many people have faced prosecution for these failures?

None did and they never will.  What amazes me is the copper Duckenfield who denied giving the command to open the gates and blamed the fans for forcing them eventually admitted it last year and said the same at the inquest.  He has not been by the CPS pulled up for falsifying his statement and bringing the force into disrepute, misconduct in public office and the more serious peverting the course of justice.  He admitted it at an inquiry, on oath.  Why hasnt he been pulled up.  Why havent the coppers who edited and changed statements? 

Secondly and I am not defending the Sun here, the papers, all of them had their own people in every police force, celeb circle, government etc and they only printed what South Yorks and the government fed them.  All their exclusives was hush hush off the record statements made by South Yorks top brass as a damage limtiation and to shift the blame from themselves to the fans, The Sun merely thought they had the hop and exclusive over all their print and TV colleagues on a world exclusive, all fed by the corrupt officials at South Yorks finest.

Dont forget South Yorks finest have overseen the 5 biggest scandals in recent times, Hillsborough, Rotheram, Orgreave, Cliff richard (in cahoots with the press again) , rhino whip scandal. 

On another note, I remember when I was at the Galatasary v Arsenal UEFA cup final in copenhagen in i think 2000 and we were attacked for 3 days straight by them and that other **** Piers Morgan lied and printed our photos and photos of my mates saying we caused it and published photos of us merely defending ourselves.  My mates lost their jobs at Consignia (new name for royal mail at the time) got sacked and on tribunal appeal got their jobs back and a pay off but they were never taken back even though the tribunal said they had to.  Other mates werent so lucky and lost ther jobs and hit depression, lost their house, family the lot.  Piers morgan for years didnt say ****, it eventually come out we were attacked, defending ourselves and he apologised some 10 years later the c u nt.  Matters not to him, he is still earning and has earned millions since with BGT and GMB etc, my mates are still **** from it.  Oh and he tapped peoples phnes the ****.

So the club speaks to The Sun for 29 years and then decides to ban them ?????  wtf

It would be like Teresa May expelling the Argie ambassador for invading The Falklands.



The only significant individual that connects The Sun of 1989 with The Sun of 2017 is Rupert Murdoch.

If Murdoch is the problem then surely Liverpool will be telling Sky their cameras are not welcome and refusing the TV money ?

Oh one more thing, how is Duckenden still collecting his golden handshake police pension?  Any copper, or anyone in public office (NHS bosses, MP's, civil servants etc)  as soon as you have a disciplinary especially during service you cannot just f ucking resign and collect your pension without any sort of investigation and culpability

I always think it's good to know in life where you stand with people. And when they didn't have this landmark British legal case on their front page last April in 2016 that told me alot. So they can do one with the 'it's another generation of journo' bollox. Plus if they was really sorry they would never have re-employed that t wat Mckenzie. So it's simple, we don't like u and u don't like us so kindly fk off.

What really gets me is the British public. The tabloid press is the cancer of this land with this scum being the primary tumour. Why do people still buy into it? What a sad state of affairs.
