As the news trickles in at an alarming rate, fans are still only just beginning to digest the shocking plans which, by all accounts, appear to be well underway.

One of the clubs heavily involved in this potentially catastrophic decision is Liverpool.

Managed by German tactician Jurgen Klopp, Liverpool, who are also threatened with expulsion are set to snub the English footballing pyramid in favour of a European elitist league.

Despite the shocking news though, Klopp was one of the few who has previously made his feelings publicly known.

Having spoken back in 2019 to German outlet Kicker (as quoted by Liverpool Echo), Klopp, when asked about the potential of a European Super League, said: “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.

“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 is [financially] important, but why should we create a system where Liverpool faces Real Madrid for 10 straight years?

“Who wants to see that every year?”
