The footballing world has all but come to a screeching halt in the wake of the Super League's formation. 12 of the biggest clubs in the world have banded together to form a brand new mid-week knockout style competition; and people are not happy. 

Much like Liverpool supporters and football fans alike, Jurgen Klopp is also not happy about the Super League. The Liverpool manager, who was previously spoke out against a Super League, says that his stance on the matter has not changed.

When speaking to Sky Sports before Liverpool FC's Premier League match against Leeds United the manager revealed that he still feels the same way. 

"I have the same opinion about the super league. My feelings have not changed."

For context, in 2019 Jurgen Klopp admitted to hoping that a league like this would never happen. 

Last year, the former Borussia Dortmund manager also commented on the Super League. 

“Why should we create a system where Liverpool faces Real Madrid for 10 straight years? Who wants to see that every year?”

Jurgen Klopp was correct as Liverpool and Real Madrid are both members of the newly formed Super League. The Super League, per the statement that was released, will be a mid-week competition made up of 20 clubs. 15 of those clubs will be 'Founding Clubs' that automatically qualify every year with the remaining five clubs qualifying based on merit of the previous season. 

Although there are still many questions to be answered, one thing is clear: Jurgen Klopp does not like the Super League.
