Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp has spoken about the club’s decision to join the European Super League.
The Reds are one of 12 clubs that have agreed to be part of the new elite competition, while the German strategist was asked about this issue before the match against Leeds United.
“My opinion has not changed (since 2019). We have little information, not enough and it is difficult. “People are not happy about that, I understand.”
In 2019, Klopp told the German newspaper Kicker: “I hope this Super League never happens. Obviously, it is important (in financial terms), but why should we create a system where Liverpool play against Real Madrid for 10 years in a row? “Who would want to see this every year?”
“We have not been involved in these processes, neither as a coach nor as a player. I have no objection to the Champions League. I like the fact that West Ham can play in the Champions League next year. “I like that they have such an opportunity.”
“The most important part of a football club is the fans and the team. Nothing can come between this. The players have done nothing wrong. “We want to qualify for the Champions League next season.”
“I understand (the grief of the fans). I do not know exactly why these 12 clubs did it. The only thing I do not understand is the competition. “I do not like it if we are not in the Champions League, but we have to be if we deserve it,” said Klopp. /Telegraph/
