Liverpool’s future is currently up in the air. The club have disgraced themselves in the past couple of days with the announcement of their involvement in the Super League. Things could get worse for the club. If FSG don’t back down then Jürgen Klopp could be tempted by Bayern Munich.
Super League announcement
The world of football was rocked this week by the announcement of a formation of a Super League.
12 clubs signed up to the debacle, the dirty dozen being: Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham, AC Milan, Atletico Madrid, Barcelona, Inter Milan, Juventus and Real Madrid.
The Super League would be a closed shop consisting of the 12 sides mentioned above plus a further three founding members along with five sides which can qualify each term.
The proposed midweek competition would see two leagues of 10 teams, with the top three of each league competing in the quarter finals along with the winners of fourth and fifth placed play offs.

The competition threatens to devastate the footballing pyramid, changing the sport indelibly.
Jürgen Klopp feelings
There’s no doubting where the fans stand on this one.
We can also assume that a majority of players won’t be up for the idea.
James Milner has been resolute in his response, telling the press after the draw with Leeds United that he doesn’t want it at all.
In 2019 Jürgen Klopp told Kicker that he also doesn’t want a Super League.
The boss confirmed this week that his views on the matter hasn’t changed.
In the fan base there is a vast sympathy for the manager and players in that they’ve been thrust in front of cameras to answer for the unpopular policy of their employers.
Jürgen Klopp and Bayern Munich
This situation could see Kopites’ worst nightmare come true.
Should the Super League go ahead then Jürgen Klopp could be tempted by Bayern Munich given that they have refused to join the new competition.
The German gaffer has been linked with the Bundesliga side in the past with many seeing him as a natural choice for the giants in the future.
This summer Hansi Flick will vacate his job as Bayern manager.
Up until last week we were secure in the knowledge that although Jürgen Klopp may be the dream candidate for Bayern Munich, there was no reason for the gaffer to leave.
Now there is. We love Jürgen because he’s principled. He is against this Super League in principle, so are Bayern Munich.
We wouldn’t blame him at all if he wanted to leave the club in the wake of his greedy decision; our loss could be Bayern’s gain.
