PAUL ON SUPER LEAGUE SHAMBLES

23 April 2021

"I'm proud of how fans reacted because as a supporter myself, I was disgusted at my club"

Paul Cook said he was shocked at the idea of a European Super League and disgutsed at the support it initially received from Liverpool.

The Town manager is a long-time supporter of The Reds and he spoke to iFollow Ipswich about the proposal for the breakaway competition involving Europe's 'elite' sides.

Liverpool and all other English sides have now withdrawn their intention to be involved in the competition.

"First of all I was shocked," Paul said.

"It's crazy that clubs can have meetings like that without managers even knowing.

"I love Jurgen Klopp [Liverpool manager] and he epitomises everything that Liverpool people love in terms of his passion and direction. The club let him and the supporters down.

"But this week showed that supporters cannot be dictated to. You cannot treat them like that. The fans at Liverpool, and at other clubs, are proud of their history and rightly so.

"I'm proud of how fans reacted because as a supporter myself, I was disgusted at my club. Some of these people think they can make decisions that the fans don't support, so isn't it great to say that they can't."
