Klopp ‘furious with FSG’ as two problems come to light amid Super League plans
Jurgen Klopp is reportedly furious with Fenway Sports Group following the announcement of the European Super League.
The bombshell announcement came on Sunday night as it was revealed that Liverpool are one of 12 European teams to have signed up to a breakaway league.
Klopp has previously voiced his concerns over the formation of such a league when the idea was mooted back in 2019.
But the German is in a very difficult situation now that the idea has come to fruition and his paymasters are directly involved in the scheme.
Klopp was asked for his thoughts on Monday night as Liverpool drew 1-1 with Leeds.
European Super League announcement fallout
The Reds boss stopped short of condemning the proposal and throwing the Liverpool owners under the bus, but he did make it clear he is largely against the formation of a breakaway league.
"I don't think it's a great idea. I like the fact West Ham might play Champions League next year. No problem. I don't want them to because we want to do that but I like that they have that chance," said Klopp.
According to The Athletic, despite Klopp's relatively calm demeanour he was in fact seething on the inside.
The publication claims that the German is very angry with FSG for its willingness to sign up to the European Super League and the fact that the announcement was made during Liverpool's preparations for the Leeds game.
The announcement forced Klopp to hold an emergency team meeting to discuss the proposal, which disrupted Liverpool's training schedule ahead of a pivotal game.
James Milner was asked for his opinions on the Super League proposal after the match and admitted he too is against the idea.
"There are a lot of questions. I can only say my personal opinion, I don't like it and I hope it doesn't happen," he said.
