Liverpool appear to ignore Super League criticism by Jurgen Klopp

Liverpool FC are running the risk of damaging their relationship with Jurgen Klopp after the club's website failed to carry his quotes about the Super League. 

On a night where he watched his side draw 1-1 away to Leeds United, the German was understandably asked for his thoughts on the proposed Super League and what it might mean for football.

The manager of one of the six Premier League clubs involved, Klopp, who has shared his distaste for the idea previously, was steadfast in his disdain.

Yet, it would appear that Liverpool's official club website have no intention of publicising their manager's thoughts on the matter.

While the club's website and YouTube page usually carry the manager's press conferences, this was not the case after Monday night's game.

Speaking out on the proposal, Jurgen Klopp reiterated why he has no interest in seeing the Super League develop.

"My opinions didn't change," he explained. "I heard first time about it yesterday and when you try and prepare for a very difficult game like Leeds United and then so far we got some information, not a lot to be honest - most of the things you can read.

"It's a tough one people are not happy with that, I can understand that but I can't say a lot about it to be honest. We were not involved in any processes, me nor the players we didn't know about it. We'll have to wait and see how it develops.

"I'm 53 years old since I was first a professional, the Champions League was there. As a manager it was my aim to coach a team there.

"I like the Champions League, the competitive factor of football. I like the fact that West Ham might play Champions League next year. I don't want them to because we want to do that. But they have a chance like that.

"What can I say: Liverpool is much more than some decisions and the most important things in football is the supporters and the teams and we have to make sure nothing comes between them."

However, the transcript of Klopp's interview that is provided on Liverpool's website only shows responses to three questions focused squarely on on-field events.
