Jurgen Klopp playfully joked he would be supportive of a European ‘Super League‘ since it would mean fewer games and more money.
Bayern Munich administrator Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has recommended the Bundesliga champions could make a legitimate action after a report in Der Spiegel asserted he and his club attempted to lead a portion of Europe’s top clubs into a breakaway competition.
The German magazine’s allegation is based on archives it professes to have attained from whistleblower ‘Football Leaks‘. Both Bayern and Rummenigge issued a strenuous denial of such allegation on Friday.
Der Spiegel named Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool were among 11 clubs Bayern Munich were purportedly wanting to lead away for the Super League, the arranging of which would introduce an evident problem for both the Champions League and other domestic league with the current guises
Speaking after Liverpool’s entertaining stalemate against Arsenal at the Emirate Stadium on Saturday night, Klopp batted away the speculative competition in commonly jaunty style
“It sounds really nice because it sounds like much less games and much more money,” he said.
“I am completely fine with how the league football is at the moment. At least, it’s an idea [the ‘Super League’] that we don’t do immediately.”
Klopp then went on to claim FIFA and UEFA’s approach to proposed competition revamps are flawed because they do not seek sufficient input from clubs and other stakeholders.
“I’m not even sure if somebody spoke about it, to be honest. It looks like all the other wonderful ideas of FIFA and UEFA,” he added.
“They do them immediately, they don’t ask. And then you see, ‘Oh, okay, we have 20 games more and not more money’.”
