Klopp slams UEFA for new CL format - Video

WATCH: Klopp goes viral after slamming UEFA for new Champions League format

April 23, 2021 By Oscar Rojas
The German boss did not hold back when asked about UEFA's decision to add four games to the continental tournament's group stage.

The announcement of the European Super League has brought to light a specific issue between coaches and football's governing body: they do not think their voices are being heard. 

Teams involved in the botched tournament have voiced their discomfort over the massive number of games they are required to play, and Jurgen Klopp raised his voice today to criticize football's governing body in Europe after the new UEFA Champions League was announced. 

"We all wanted to have the Super League away, and we did. But at the same moment we found out that the new Champions League (format) is here. And who tells me that it's not about money? It's a joke! I said it before with the Nations League, more games. I said it before, FIFA wanted a (larger) Club World Cup, and they don't ask! They just go ahead and introduce it. And what's the reason for that? Money!" Klopp said.

Then, the German boss went on further about the new UEFA Champions League format, and while doing that, he managed to find common ground with Pep Guardiola and other managers.
