Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has suggested that his thoughts on a potential European Super League have not changed.
The German originally expressed his dismay at the proposals in 2019, stating that he hoped it would “never” happen.
Now, with the Reds, alongside Premier League rivals Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur having pledged their allegiance to a potential new league, he has stated that his opinion has not been altered.
Speaking to Sky Sports ahead of Liverpool’s Premier League clash with Leeds United at Elland Road, Klopp said: “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.
“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. That’s the case or the fact, the facts are out there. We will have to wait to see how it develops.”
Whilst the Reds could potentially be planning the European Super League, they at first will hope to qualify for the UEFA Champions League. They can be backed at a price of 4/7 with the Betfair Exchange to finish in the top four come the end of the campaign.
