Jurgen Klopp has said he understands the unhappiness of Liverpool fans after news of a European Super League emerged.
Klopp spoke ahead of their game with Leeds United on Monday night and immediately fielded questions about the Reds' involvement in the breakaway movement.
"I understand [the fans' anger]. I don't know exactly why the 12 clubs did it," Klopp told Sky Sports.

"It's always 'more games, more games'. It's about more money, nothing else.
“I can't say a lot more because we were not involved in the process - not the players, not me - we didn't know about it. We will have to wait to see how it develops."
Leeds wore T-shirts in the warm-up emblazoned with ‘Earn It’ and the Champions League logo in a clear criticism of the Super League plans.
Klopp was unhappy with the stunt, saying: "I heard already there are warm-up shirts or whatever - we will not wear them. We cannot.
"But if somebody thinks they have to remind us that you have to earn [the right] to go into the Champions League, that's a joke.
"That's a real joke and it makes me angry. So they put it in our dressing room. If it was a Leeds idea - thank you very much. Nobody needs to remind us."
