Fans protest on Super League took place outside Elland Road Stadium on Leeds Road and a banner “#saynotosuperleague” was hoisted above the ground before the launch.
On the pitch, Leeds players wore shirts with the words “for football fans” and “wins” next to the Champions League logo during the warm-up – a reference to teams that qualify to play in the Champions League. Required, which will not happen with the founding clubs of the Super League.
Liverpool is one of the 12 teams that have entered the competition, a European isolationist league that currently has the top teams from England, Spain, and Italy.
Most of the teams involved in the competition, which can start later this year and generate more revenue than current European competitions, will be permanent members.
“It’s amazing that I can’t really understand the things I’m talking about,” Leeds striker Patrick Bamford told Sky Sports after the 1–1 draw on Monday.
“It is amazing that the amount of nuisance increases when an injury occurs on someone’s pocket. It is a shame that this is not the case with other things that go wrong in a minute – along with racism.”
“I have not seen any football fan who is happy with the decision and I think that is ultimately for football fans. Without fans, every club would be almost nothing. So I think it is important to maintain our position and show football. The fans and they are trying to keep it that way. “
Liverpool captain James Milner told Sky Sports, “I can only say my personal opinion. I don’t like it We hope that will not happen. “
“Obviously, the players didn’t have a word to say, so the reception we came on the field tonight seemed a bit unfair. We are here to play football and we have no control. “
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp – whose team is ranked sixth in the Premier League, will be two places away from automatic qualification for the Champions League – spoke out against the concept of the European Super League in 2019 and reiterated his concern on Monday. “People are not happy with this, I can understand that,” Klopp told Sky Sports.
“But I can’t ask to be more honest about it because we were not involved in any process, not the players, not me, I didn’t know about it… We have to wait (and see) how it goes.”
“Obviously, I have no problem with the Champions League… I like the fact that (in fourth) West Ham can play in the Champions League next year. I don’t want to be honest. But I like that they have a chance. “
