Former England defender Danny Mills used the international break to take aim at Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp’s trophy haul at Anfield.
As per TalkSport, Mills said that winning the Super Cup this year shouldn’t count towards the silverware the Reds have won under Klopp.
He said: “It doesn’t count. Ridiculous. I’ve never won it, so it doesn’t count for me. But it’s like the Community Shield, it’s not a proper trophy, is it? How many players at the end of their season go, oh yeah, I won the Super Cup… or the Community Shield?
“It’s not a proper trophy, I don’t think there’s any serious players or managers – maybe Mourinho – who count it as a serious trophy.”
Mills won just the 2004 League Cup with Middlesbrough in his playing career and many supporters took to Twitter to say he is just looking for attention or is just jealous.
To be in either the Community Shield or the Super Cup, you need to have had an exceptional season the year before so even if the trophies themselves do not carry the lustre that the Premier League or the Champions League do, they’re a fair barometer of a top side.
The Super Cup is a major trophy the Community Shield isn’t. In the Community Shield you can make about 6 substitutions and there is no extra time. The Super Cup is played under exactly the same rules as any other UEFA match. Liverpool & Chelsea were definitely taking it seriously

How would he know? He’s never been anywhere near the level to play for a team good enough to be competing for trophies like super cups 😂

How can anyone take that guy seriously when he’s wearing a bobble hat indoors when it’s still 15C outside 🔔🔚

Danny Mills also wears woolly hats indoors, so anything that comes out of his mouth is therefore redundant.

It counts as a major honour on the trophies list, by the standards of football bodies. But cheers some unknown radio host for making it clear for everyone.

Danny mills is another of these once semi decent pros who is stealing a living out of broadcasting. The hat is another subject
