Watch: James Milner criticises European Super League – ‘I don’t like it’
The fixture was the first played in England’s top flight since plans were confirmed that Liverpool are one of 12 clubs forming a breakaway European Super League.
Jurgen Klopp has previously spoken out in his opposition of a Super League and reiterated his stance before the clash in West Yorkshire, where Liverpool’s team bus was greeted by a chorus of “greedy b*stards” and “scum” by fans of both clubs.
After Diego Llorente cancelled out Sadio Mane’s opener to earn Leeds a point, Milner was asked for his opinion on the plans in his post-match interview.
Just when we thought we couldn’t love Milner more than we already do, the midfielder was adamant he was against the proposals.
🗣 "I don't like it, I hope it doesn't happen."
