Watch Klopp’s ridiculous Saudi takeover rant as Gerrard & Rodgers address NUFC rumours

Jurgen Klopp is right to question the human rights record in Saudi Arabia, however his comments that followed in today’s press conference on Merseyside are baffling at best.

He claims that the arrival of super-rich new owners at St James’ Park is “pretty much the same” as the 12 clubs who tried to create the European Super League back in April.

Having extremely wealthy owners within the Premier League is VERY different to snaking your way out of the division so all the entitled ‘big six’ clubs can create a money-grabbing league of their own that ends competition and makes the rich even richer. Jurgen.

Considering the European Super League was slyly set up to eliminate future competition and the Newcastle United takeover looks set to increase future competition at the top of the Premier League, the two really can’t be compared.

Watch what he had to say about it below:

Elsewhere, Brendan Rodgers has ruled himself out of the running for the Newcastle United job, saying he’ll be “100% staying” at Leicester.

Various reports over the past week suggested he was an early target for the Saudi-backed consortiums, with him being the bookies favourite for the job earlier this week, however it’s clear he’s happy at Leicester and going nowhere.

Another manager whose been discussing recent links to Newcastle is Steven Gerrard.

The Rangers boss said he was ignoring all the speculation, mainly out of respect to Steve Bruce, however it was interesting that he never actually ruled out a potential move to St James’ Park should the 60-year-old be sacked…

Here’s what both had to say, starting with Gerrard:

  1. Grow a thick skin guys because this will come in from all angles now.
    This from the manager of the club who along with Manure have been bullying the Premier League for years to keep their elite status, also tapping up the best kids from lower league clubs, then having the cheek to call them home grown. The man is crass, and shows his true colours now we will be a competitor.


  2. The ONLY reason Bruce wasn’t sacked was that the new owners wanted to keep the Press on their side…

    …trouble is the Numpty in yesterday’s Press conference has attacked the Press putting them against him / Club

    He’s a liability both on and off the Pitch – get shot ASAP

    Plus what ever happens on Sunday DON’T let the new owner’s touch any ‘water’ bottle with SB on
