James Pearce has provided an update on the chances of Liverpool playing in a European Super League, giving potentially positive news on the matter.
The Reds drew 1-1 away to Leeds United on Monday evening, blowing a half-time lead and dropping two points in their quest to finish in the top four. It was a difficult night for Jurgen Klopp and his players, following a strange 24 hours which had been dominated by talk of a European Super League happening.
Pearce provides European Super League update
Speaking in a Q&A for The Athletic after the match, Pearce claimed that sources have told him that the controversial new tournament remains unlikely to come to fruition, no doubt acting as a positive update to many Liverpool fans who have registered their disgust at the idea:
“I’ve spoken to people today who remain convinced the Super League won’t happen. I really hope they are right but damage has been done by FSG’s action that will never be repaired.”
Transfer Tavern take
While not everyone will be in the same boat, the vast majority should be buoyed by the reliable Pearce’s comments, suggesting there may be light at the end of the tunnel.
This venture cannot happen, with it having the potential to rip the heart out of English football and change the way we watch the game forever.
While the draw with Leeds could end up being fatal to Liverpool’s Champions League hopes, we should prefer them to not be in the competition next season rather than be in a soulless European Super League where relegation doesn’t even exist.
