Jurgen Klopp has made an impassioned plea for football fans not to direct their anger over the Super League proposals at his team.

Liverpool boss Klopp said after his side's 1-1 draw at Leeds that neither he nor his players had anything to do with club owners' decision to become part of a European breakaway league.

"I have six years at the club. I know our owners, they are reasonable people, serious people," said Klopp, who saw Sadio Mane's first-half opener at Elland Road cancelled out by Diego Llorente's late header.

"The president of the club puts his foot forward to limit the power of these big clubs," Bielsa said.

"This is something to celebrate. The clubs need each other, but because football has a more commercial view, it's natural in the world of businesses, looking only at the economic aspect, the ones that produce the most, demand the majority of it.

"Football belongs to everybody, even if there are owners. The real owners of football are those who love the badge and without them football will disappear."

Bielsa said European football's governing bodies should have seen this coming from the so-called big clubs.

He added: "The organisations could have anticipated this and avoided it. I insist this should not surprise us because it happens in all walks of life."
