Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp had admitted that he’s tired of the news surrounding the European Super League drama.

The Premier League’s Big Six were all part of the ESL scheme, but backed out upon facing massive backlash from fans.

Talks of the failed ESL project is still strong in the media, much to the frustration of Klopp.

The Liverpool boss had also told fans of Chelsea and Arsenal to calm down following their protests in the capital.

He said: “It’s constantly mentioned, Liverpool Football Club, Liverpool Football Club – no, it was not Liverpool Football Club. It was representatives of Liverpool Football Club, we have to make a difference.

“That’s really very important. I see the pictures the last few days of the Arsenal and Chelsea stuff like this… I really think, you all have to calm down.

“Yesterday on Sky, three journalists sitting all day talking about it, it’s winding up people. You cannot just create other pictures, we are still in a pandemic. People are out there without face masks and shouting their opinion out.

“All the pundits have to calm down as well a little bit because, yes, no one wanted it, definitely. But now let’s deal with it and not constantly show we didn’t want it.”

Meanwhile, former Leicester City star Gary Lineker has slammed the statement made by Klopp, and insisted that it was right for the fans to protest in order to save the sport.

“A handful of owners try to tear our game apart and may well try to do so again, and we’re just told to ‘calm down and move on’,” the Match Of The Day presenter Lineker wrote on Twitter.

“Huge admirer of Klopp but he’s spectacularly tone deaf here. Without the fans of our beautiful game it would be much uglier today.”
