There is a definite risk of Jurgen Klopp leaving Liverpool off the back of the European Super League debacle, according to Paul Robinson.
The former England number one, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, claimed the 53-year-old’s position at Anfield “was the safest in football” but fears that is no longer the case.
All six English clubs withdrew from the European Super League last night after significant protests from fans, players, managers and the media.

Klopp cast an angry figure at Leeds United on Monday night when quizzed about Liverpool’s involvement in the ESL, having not been consulted by his owners on the decision to join the competition.
Football Insider understands from a Liverpool source the German is furious at FSG for “hanging him out to dry” on live television and his future is now far from secure.
Robinson suggested Klopp will be doing some serious thinking about his future after the events that unfolded this week.
“Klopp made it very clear that it was the owners of the club the other night,” he told Football Insider‘s Dylan Childs. “His anger is understandable.
“His opinion on a Super League is quite clear given his comments in 2019. Klopp is no different to us, he will be disgusted by what has been going on.
“Will Klopp leave? I do not think he will. Whether his thoughts over the next few months change as a result of what has happened behind the scenes, we will have to wait and see.
“Before this, Klopp’s job was the safest in football. Now, of course there is a risk he could leave.”
