Liverpool and their top six counterparts opted to share power in the latest owners’ charter, with sides signing off on equal voting powers for all 20 members of the English top-flight.
This update comes courtesy of the Mirror, which shared the following pertinent parts of the agreement in question:
- EQUAL votes for all 20 clubs on key decisions
- FULLY open competition in the Premier League
- SPORTING merit which would stop any sort of coefficient system allowing clubs to get into the Champions League based on previous success
- ANTI discriminatory charter in the ongoing fight against racism, sexism and homophobia
Given that the Merseysiders are enjoying plenty of success under the Jurgen Klopp regime, with Champions League football practically a formality every season for the FA Cup and League Cup winners, the document, which effectively ends the possibility of clubs entering Europe’s premier competition without a top four finish, isn’t necessarily a concern.
That being said, the sentiment may not be shared by the likes of Manchester United and other outfits who have struggled to return to the heralded top four places.
All in all, however, it’s a move that we at the Empire of the Kop support in a bid to strive for fairness.
