Jurgen Klopp’s loyalty is to the Liverpool fans and players and it is therefore unlikely he will quit the club after the failed proposed Super League.
That is the view of ex-England and Premier League defender Danny Mills, speaking exclusively to Football Insider after the German’s relationship with the club’s owners comes under increasing pressure.
Football Insider revealed in the wake of the Super League plot that Klopp was left “devastated” after he was not consulted by FSG.
It leaves his relationship with the club’s owners extremely strained and his future far from secure.
The Mirror report FSG rejected a £3billion bid for the club before the Super League plan was revealed and subsequently retracted.
“Guardiola, Klopp and all these managers have said ‘Hang on a minute, this is not right’,” Mills told Football Insider correspondent Connor Whitley.
“It’s like they’ve researched and tried to make the worst decision on the planet. You know what, they’ve achieved it.
“They couldn’t have got it more wrong. They didn’t tell the managers what was going on. They didn’t tell the players what was going on.
“The media teams were just putting it out there. Nobody had any idea what was going on.
“It was quite difficult, but right, for players and managers to be outspoken about their clubs. It’s their employers and they were saying ‘We don’t want this, it’s ridiculous.’ It was brave but still quite difficult.
“Klopp’s loyalty is to the players and fans. As long as he can do his job.
“He’ll make his feelings clear that sport is about competition. Sport is about being able to get there. Sport is about AFC Wimbledon climbing all the divisions and maybe being able to get to the Premier League one day. Sport is about San Marino having the chance to win the World Cup. Sport is about Leicester being able to win the Premier League.
“All sport is about having the right to compete. Otherwise, what’s the point? You may as well play exhibition games.”
