Liverpool are one of several European clubs planning to launch a new ‘Super League’, which could replace the Champions League.
In a statement on the Reds website last night, the reigning Premier League champions confirmed their participation in the proposed breakaway tournament, alongside Manchester United, Real Madrid and Juventus.
Bundesliga reporter Chris Williams took to Twitter this morning to reveal that he has made contact with UEFA and that they are crawling with plans and want to strip the clubs involved of their Champions League titles and in the Europa League.
Take a look at the tweet below.
Speaking to the folks at UEFA this morning, there is a real desire that the 12 be immediately fired from all UEFA club competitions – and that Real, Barcelona, AC Milan and Liverpool be stripped. their badges of honor. Suffice to say that there are a lot of angry people out there.

As one of the main founding clubs, Liverpool could be in line for a cash infusion of around £ 305million if they do indeed join the ‘super league’ for the pencil start date of 2023 , as the Times reports.
