Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp, has insisted he will step down as the club’s coach, despite not supporting the club’s decision to join a proposed European Super League.
The Reds are one of the 12 clubs set to launch their own breakaway competition and Klopp and his players were booed by fans ahead of Monday’s Premier League game at Leeds on Monday night.
Speaking after the 1-1 draw at Elland Road, Klopp insisted said;
“I’m here as a football manager. I will do that as long as people let me do that. I heard today that I will resign or whatever.
“I feel responsible for the team, responsible for the club and for the relationship we have with our fans.
“It’s a very tough time, but I will try to help to sort it somehow,” Klopp said.
Apart from Liverpool, the other ‘Big Six’ clubs in England – Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester City, Chelsea and Manchester United – have all signed up for the Super League.
