Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is upset being kept in the dark by owners FSG over the Super League breakaway.

The Athletic reports Klopp was left extremely unhappy with the club's American owners, Fenway Sports Group, over their willingness to join the Super League and for the timing of the announcement just before a crucial fixture.

Liverpool had the chance to climb back into the top four with a victory at Leeds United.

Klopp is said to have urged his squad not to be distracted by the reaction in a meeting with his players on Monday morning but they were unable to take three points in West Yorkshire.

Klopp was also angry about the treatment of his staff and players. They were said to be shocked by the abuse directed towards them during pre-game walk in Leeds and when their team bus arrived at the stadium.

A Liverpool shirt was burned while supporters chanted "scum" and "greedy b*******" and a banner was flown over the stadium during the match.
