HBO host and political commentator/satirist John Oliver wants you to go see his beloved Liverpool during their tour of the United States this week.

Oliver took some time to join LFC TV this week, explaining why Liverpool is worth watching in a sometimes salty (but bleeped) plea.

The Reds are unbeaten in four preseason matches, having knocked off Tranmere Rovers, Fleetwood Town, Wigan Athletic, and Huddersfield Town.

Now they move onto the States, with five preseason matches left: Chelsea, AC Milan, Roma, Barcelona and Mainz. The Roma, Milan and Chelsea matches take place in the U.

VIDEO: Disgraced FIFA official Jack Warner responds to John Oliver’s requests

John Oliver and former Jack Warner are getting into it. Big time.

The FIFA scandal has cast its net far and wide to soccer officials past and present across the globe and one name keeps cropping up: Jack Warner.

The disgraced former FIFA vice president and president of CONCACAF, who stepped down from those positions in 2011 voluntarily after allegations of another corruption scandal, Warner has denied all the charges against him so far despite being indicted by the FBI for several counts of corruption and being listed on a red notice by Interpol.

Warner, 72, has been rather outspoken from his home in Trinidad and Tobago, as he’s bought air time on national TV station TV6 to warn the world that there is an “avalanche” of evidence coming from him that there’s been plenty of corruption from others at FIFA. Yet he still proclaims his innocence.

British comedian John Oliver, who hosts Last Week Tonight, bought a slot on Trinidad and Tobago’s TV6 last week and produced a video named “The Mittens of Disapproval Are On” to first mock Warner and then pleaded with him to release the information he claimed he was holding back.

Now, we have a retort from Warner and Oliver has fired straight back.

This could turn in to quite the amusing sideshow. Below is Oliver’s latest response.

With the FIFA scandal currently ripping apart world soccer’s governing body, British comedian John Oliver has taken it upon himself to try and sort out a few individuals embroiled in the scandal.

Disgraced former FIFA vice president and president of CONCACAF Jack Warner has denied all the charges against him so far, despite being indicted by the FBI for several counts of corruption and wanted by Interpol.

Warner, 72, has been rather outspoken from his home in Trinidad and Tobago, as he’s bought air time on national TV station TV6 to warn the world that there is an “avalanche” of evidence coming from him that there’s been plenty of corruption from others at FIFA… but not by him.

Anyway, below is a video of Oliver who himself decided to buy a slot on TV6 to address the good people of Trinidad and Tobago as he tries to get a message across to Warner. Oliver’s near five-minute long segment was called: “The Mittens of Disapproval Are On.”

I’m just going to leave this here…
