Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher has slammed the club over their European Super League plans.
Liverpool is among six Premier League teams who have agreed to opt-out of the UEFA competitions with the move having elicited a strong debate from those close to the clubs.
A total of 12 teams have agreed to join the competition which is set to put them in the bad books of UEFA who warned on Sunday that a move by any team to the new competition would attract stiffer penalties.
Reacting to the news that Liverpool was one of the 12 teams who had signed in for the competition on Twitter, Carragher said: "What an embarrassment we've become Liverpool FC think of all the people who have come before us at this club who would be equally embarrassed as well. #SuperLeague"
The journalist sentiments were backed by Liverpool’s supporters' union Spirit of Shankly, who stated: "Embarrassing as fan representatives we are appalled & completely oppose this decision.
"FSG have ignored fans in their relentless & greedy pursuit of money. Football is ours, not theirs. Our football club is ours, not theirs. We will respond fully to this statement in due course."
