Former Reds defender Jamie Carragher believes Liverpool’s ownership would be kicked out of the club if Jurgen Klopp would walk out.
The tensions have followed after the club’s owners, Fenway Sports Group (FGS) of from the USA, decided to become part of the UEFA Super League, despite Klopp clearly saying he is against the whole concept last year.
“From my club, the only reason Liverpool are in this is or have a chance in being in this Super League, is because they've won six European Cups and 20 league titles. Only one of each came under FSG,” club legend Carragher said via Goal.
"They have used everything Liverpool have done in their history, going to even before Bill Shankly, to line their own pockets.
"The biggest thing is that everyone's against it. Jurgen Klopp spoke about this in 2019 and made his stance very clear.
"If Liverpool lose their manager on the back of this in the next 12 months, then the owners will be run out of that club in a week. I can assure you of that,” the former England international added.
"It hurts me more because this ownership bought Liverpool on the back of other American owners who ran the club badly and the fans got them out.
"These [owners] got the club for a steal. It is now six or seven times bigger, they've made their money and they won the lottery with Liverpool,” he concluded.
Coming up next for the champions is a Premier League game at home to Newcastle at Anfield this weekend.
