The statement read, “We don’t like it and we don’t want it to happen. This is our collective position. Our commitment to this football club and its supporters is absolute and unconditional. You’ll Never Walk Alone.”
Liverpool’s exit from the ESL plans came with all other Premier League sides also sharing the same decision. Jurgen Klopp condemned the decision as well, right alongside the fans and former players of the club.
“The team has nothing to do with it,” Klopp said. “I don’t like it and I don’t want it to happen.”
Klopp also added, “I am here as a football coach and manager and I will do that as long as people let me do that. I heard today that I will resign. That makes me more sticky that I will stay. I feel responsible for the team, I feel responsible for the club and the relationship we have with our fans. It is a very tough time but I will try to help to sort it somehow.”
