On Monday morning it was announced that Liverpool is one of the clubs that has taken the initiative to establish a new league, the Super League.
Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp emphasized before Monday night’s game against Leeds that his players have nothing to do with the plans. “I don’t have much information either, but I hope that all supporters realize that our players are completely outside it.” The fans of ‘ The Reds’ reacted furiously to the news that their club is one of the initiators. Outside the Liverpool stadium, the fans hung black banners on Monday with the texts, among other things, in English, ‘Shame on you, RIP LFC, 1892-2021’ and ‘Liverpool fans against European Super League’.
The Liverpool coach hinted little for the idea of a new league. “The Champions League has been there since I started as a coach. My ambition has always been to play at that level. My opinion has not changed, ”said Klopp. “And now a new competition without promotion or relegation? I want West Ham United, for example, to also qualify for the Champions League. Everyone should get that chance. ”
