Jurgen Klopp and Gary Neville clash on MNF over European Super League

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp reacted furiously to Gary Neville's criticism of the Premier League champions' involvement in the European Super League, leaving the Sky Sports pundit to reply: "I don't know why I'm in his head, to be honest".

Neville took issue with Liverpool signing up for the European Super League during a rant over the new competition on Sunday.

The Manchester United hero tore into the plans and called for action against the new league.

In doing so, he criticised Liverpool's 'You'll Never Walk Alone' anthem, something Klopp seemed to take issue with after Monday night's draw with Leeds.

“Gary Neville talks about ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’, that should be forbidden to be honest," he said. "We have a lot of rights to sing that anthem and it’s our anthem, not his anthem. He doesn’t understand it anyway so I really don’t want these things because it’s not fair.

“All the talk is around and I don’t like it as well, but I don’t talk about other clubs like this. We can be emotional but I wish Gary Neville would be in a hot seat somewhere, not where the most money is.

“Whether it’s at Man United where the most money is, Sky where the most money is. Don’t forget that we have nothing to do with it. We are in the same situation as you all, we got information and we still had to play football and you deal with us already like this. That’s really not OK.”

Neville responded by claiming Klopp has been let down by Liverpool's owners, Fenway Sports Group.

  • "Why? Why is it not fair?" He responded. “I’ve handed enough insults out to Liverpool over the years. Yesterday was nothing about insulting Liverpool Football Club. I don’t know why I’m living in his head to be honest with you. I don’t know what spiked him.

    “Yesterday was an impassioned plea from me about football and protecting football in this country and my biggest disappointment was with Manchester United and Liverpool. I think I’ve equally distributed enough criticism to both clubs in the last 24 hours, so I don’t know what his problem is.

    “He talks about hotseat, I had a 25 year career at Manchester United, 11 years at Sky and I worked hard for that. I’ve not been handed it, I’ve not gone where the most money is, I didn’t have choices. Sir Alex Ferguson didn’t say every year, ‘Gary do you want to stay here?’ So I have no idea what he’s going on about.

    “I employ 600 people in the city, I tried to look after them through a pandemic, is that not a hot enough seat for him? He’s done a great job at Liverpool, I’ve got no problem with Jurgen Klopp, I loved his team.

    “But the fact of the matter is he’s spiky, he’s been let down by his owners, his owners have thrown him under a bus. To be fair, we’re on the same page, we’re actually on the same team, but the fact of the matter his he can’t say what he wants to say and I can, and I accept that.

    “The Jurgen Klopp we know, you know and the Liverpool fans know, he hates every single little thing about this more than I do, more than you do, because it goes against every little thing he believes in. He’s been let down by his owners and so have those players at Liverpool.”
