The European Super League has started to draw serious ire from the current players as well. Liverpool captain, James Milner, joined the bandwagon to criticize the plan. It is expected that the new proposed league will not only inflate the price of the players but will kill the competition on which the players are thriving.

Jurgen Klopp’s men were disappointed when Llorente scored at the fag end of the game against Leeds United. The draw is expected to have serious implications on their pursuit to finish inside the top four.

James Milner disagrees with Super League plan.

After the game against Leeds United at Elland Road, James Milner gave his views on European Super League which is widely hated by football fans. Football fans are enraged about the new league and the legendary players have started to oppose and voice their opinions. The likes of Jamie Carragher and Gary Neville did forget the rivalry and bashed their respective owners, FSG and Glazers, in Monday Night Football.

Talking to media, former Liverpool skipper, James Milner said:

I don’t like it and hopefully it does not happen. I can only say my view, I don't like it and hopefully it doesn't happen. I can imagine what has been said about it and I probably agree with a lot of it. The welcome we got at the ground tonight was a bit unjust. We are just here to play football.

Liverpool were only able to draw level against the promoted side Leeds United and the Whites proved that they are here to stay. Marcelo Bielsa’s men moved into top ten with a point against Liverpool whereas Liverpool’s Champions League hopes are in hangs after a draw. Chelsea will face Brighton Hove and Albion on Tuesday at Stamford Bridge in a bid to qualify for the Champions League spots.
