Klopp was asked about a potential new competition replacing the Champions League and he didn't hold back - slamming the project.

Speaking to German outlet Kicker back in 2019, he 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."

The Champions League-winning manager added: "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?"

Manchester United legend Gary Neville pulled no punches as he lambasted the European Super League with fellow Sky Sports pundit Jamie Carragher taking aim at the 'money grab'.

He tweeted: "What an embarrassment we've become @LFC think of all the people who have come before us at this club who would be equally embarrassed as well. #SuperLeague."
