Leeds players wore t-shirts saying 'Earn it' next to the Champions League logo. They put the same shirts in Liverpool's dressing room, much to chagrin of Klopp.
Whilst the German has expressed his disapproval of the Super League plans, he insists it is not the players fault.
"I don't think it is right," Klopp said. "They put them in our dressing room, I don't think we deserved that. I don't like the way a lot of people are talking about Liverpool.
"This is a fantastic football club. In this specific moment we can't blame the team for that. I take the criticism for everything, but this we have nothing to do with.
"Now people write articles about what they should do with it. People are shouting at us. We have to be careful because we are people as well. We have to be careful. I understand all the talk and I don't like it as well.
"Don't forget we have nothing to do with it. We still have to play football. It is really not OK. Our owners are great people, they will try to explain the decisions. Will I understand it? I don't know, but it is still not my decision.
"I coach a football team. If people want to criticise me, completely fine. But other things, it is not OK. Everyone should not forget."
