Outraged Liverpool fans to remove flags from the Kop in protest over European Super League

Liverpool fan group Spion Kop 1906 have announced that they and other groups involved in decorating Anfield's iconic Kop will remove their flags as a protest against the club's involvement in the European Super League.

The stand has had flags that acted as tributes to iconic players, managers and seasons since the COVID-19 pandemic hit and fans weren't allowed into stadiums.

"We, along with other groups involved in flags, will be removing our flags from The Kop," the group wrote on Twitter on Monday.

"We feel we can no longer give our support to a club which puts financial greed above integrity of the game."

Liverpool's next home game is against Newcastle United in the Premier League on Saturday.

Fans have also appeared outside Anfield with banners which say: "LFC against European Super League."

Leeds players turned up on the pitch with their own message ahead of their Premier League clash against Liverpool Monday, wearing shirts that said "Earn it" on the front and "Football is for the fans" on the back.

Twelve of Europe's top clubs announced on Sunday they were launching a breakaway Super League, headed by Real Madrid president Florentino Perez.

AC Milan, Arsenal, Atletico Madrid, Chelsea, Barcelona, Inter Milan, Juventus, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United, Real Madrid and Tottenham Hotspur have all joined as founding clubs.
