Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has backed the European Court of Justice ruling on European Super League, MySportDab reports.
The German tactician begged to differ from popular opinions about the European Super League as he insisted he is “100% in support of the European Court of Justice verdict.”
In a quote shared by Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, Klopp said it was good that UEFA’s monopoly and dominance of the game has been challenged.
“I agree 100% with the statement and the verdict”.
“I also like that we get an understanding that UEFA and other FAs can’t just do what they want… putting in more games with people having no say in it”.
“I like that UEFA & more got a bit of a shake,” he said.
MySportDab reported earlier that Liverpool were the last of the Premier League top clubs to distance themselves from European Super League after the court ruling.
The silence of the Merseyside club was already raising suspicions on whether they will opt to join ranks with proponents of the breakaway competition.
Earlier today, the Reds finally broke their silence and toed the path of other Premier League clubs, and their European counterparts, rejecting the ambitious football project with a bold statement.
However, Jurgen Klopp seemed to share a different opinion as he insist he supports the ruling which has slightly pegged back UEFA from their absolute monopoly of footballing activities in Europe.
Some football managers have also waded into the argument with many buttressing the sentiments of their clubs.
Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta said he is 100% committed and trustful of UEFA and UEFA competitions as the best football models.
Carlo Ancelotti shares the sentiments of his club Real Madrid, who are the ringleaders of the project.
Ancelotti said the European Super League model offers a more promising prospect to world football, and hopes clubs will subsequently buy into the idea.
