Reigning champions Liverpool fell further behind with a 1-1 draw with Leeds United in the middle of the Premier League table. Liverpool have also announced their involvement with 11 other European teams to play in the European Super League (ESL) despite the threat of international sanctions. FIFA and UEFA have already issued stern warnings that all players involved in the ESL will be banned from the World Cup and the Euros. All in all, the disguise is going on in the fog with this league.
In the fog, the players are naturally under pressure from the clubs. Its effect is normal to read in their game. Yesterday, his practice was seen among the Liverpool players. Sixth-placed Liverpool are two points behind fourth-placed West Ham in the Premier League table. The Reds took the lead in the 31st minute at Alland Road in Leeds. Diego Lorente equalized for Leeds with a header from a corner three minutes before the end of the match. This is Laurent’s first goal in the Leeds jersey.
The top four teams in the Premier League usually qualify to play in next year’s UEFA Champions League. But six-time European champions Liverpool could be knocked out of the Champions League by UEFA due to the Super League, even if they finish in the top four this year. However, supporters of both teams gathered outside Alland Road before yesterday’s match to protest the Super League. The T-shirts the Leeds players practiced later read, “Don’t tell the Super League.”
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp initially made negative comments about the Super League plan. In a pre-match interview with Sky Sports, Klopp claimed that his team was taking part in the new format of the club competition under duress. The bottom line is that although the top 12 teams in Europe are associated with this Super League, no team from Germany, the club’s country, is participating.
European giants Bayern Munich made it clear on Monday that they are satisfied with the current structure of football. Six Premier League teams – Liverpool, Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur – have announced their participation in the European Super League. They are joined by Spanish giants Real Madrid, Barcelona and Atletico Madrid and three Italian teams Juventus, Inter Milan and AC Milan.
