Jurgen Klopp has said his opinion on the European Super League has not changed. Liverpool is one of the Founding members of the league. But the Liverpool coach is very much against the breakaway league. Klopp has rubbished rumours that he will walk away instead hopes to “try to help to sort it somehow”.
“I hope this Super League will never happen. With the way the Champions League is now running, football has a great product, even with the Europa League.” Klopp had said in 2019 about the Super League proposals. “For me, the Champions League is the Super League, in which you do not always end up playing against the same teams. Of course, it’s economically important, but why should we create a system where Liverpool faces Real Madrid for 10 straight years? Who wants to see that every year?”
Postmatch, Jurgen Klopp was asked if his opinions of the European Super League had changed from 2019. “My opinion didn’t change. Obviously, I heard for the first time about it yesterday and trying to prepare a game, a very difficult game against Leeds, and I knew so far we got some information, not a lot to be honest,” he said. “It’s a tough one. People are not happy about it, and I can understand that, but I cannot say a lot more about it because we were not involved in any processes, not the players not me, we didn’t know about it. We will have to wait to see how it develops.”
Pundit Gary Neville commended Jurgen Klopp for coming out and speaking against the breakaway league. He was all praise for the calm way in which Klopp destroyed the owners on national television. Liverpool player James Milner echoed Klopp’s sentiments as well. He said that he is not a fan of the concept and hopes that the plans do not move forward.
