The Reds were confirmed as one of the 12 leading European clubs who have committed to joining a new competition that will begin as soon “as soon as is practicable”.
Klopp has long since spoken out against the prospect of such a tournament, which goes against the traditional structures of European football, stating in 2019 that he hoped it would “never” happen.
“My feelings didn’t change. My opinion didn’t change,” he said ahead of the Premier League game with Leeds on Monday evening. “I heard for the first time about it yesterday. I was trying to prepare for a difficult game.
“We got some information, not a lot. Most of the things in the newspapers. It’s a tough one. People are not happy with it, I can understand it.
“I can’t say a lot more because we were not involved in the process – not the players, not me – we didn’t know about it. We will have to wait how it develops.”
Neville applauded Klopp’s comments, stating: “He’s done it in a very calm fashion, I think he has to in the position he’s in. He’s destroyed his owners on national television, let’s be clear, he’s gone out against his owners on national television.
