Liverpool hero Jamie Carragher fears Jurgen Klopp could walk out on the club over their Super League involvement.

Carragher insists Liverpool's Fenway Sports Group owners would be chased out of the club by the fans if Klopp left the club following Sunday's announcement of the controversial European Super League proposals.

"From my club, the only reason Liverpool are in this is or have a chance in being in this Super League, is because they've won six European Cups and 20 league titles. Only one of each came under FSG," Carragher said.

"They have used everything Liverpool have done in their history, going to even before Bill Shankly, to line their own pockets.

"The biggest thing is that everyone's against it tonight. Jurgen Klopp spoke about this in 2019 and made his stance very clear.

"If Liverpool lose their manager on the back of this in the next 12 months, then the owners will be run out of that club in a week. I can assure you of that.

"It hurts me more because this ownership bought Liverpool on the back of other American owners who ran the club badly and the fans got them out.

"These [owners] got the club for a steal. It is now six or seven times bigger, they've made their money and they won the lottery with Liverpool."
