Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp says Reds owner John Henry hasn't contacted him personally to apologise for signing the club up to the European Super League.
Henry was forced into an embarrassing climbdown when, along with the other five Premier League rebels Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham, the Reds pulled out of the Super League idea on Tuesday night, just 48 hours after they had all signed up for it.
The Reds owner released a video message on Wednesday morning when he said sorry for his decision, admitting that he felt remorse for the distress he had caused Klopp, the team and the fans.
But the German boss says he didn't speak to Henry personally, although he isn't too concerned about that.
"I don't think it's necessary," he said on Friday at his press conference ahead of the Saturday lunchtime's clash with Newcastle.
"I was mentioned in the apology and so was the team. That was personal enough for me."
When asked what he though of Henry and Fenway Sports Group's decision, he added: "I have known the owners for six years.
"I know there were some moments when they might not have made the right decision, this time for sure. But it doesn't change things for me, I prefer to deal with problems with people I know.
"Our owners are not bad people. They are not perfect like I am not perfect. They made a bad decision but let's carry on."
Liverpool faced Leeds United on Monday night with the proposals hanging over them, before releasing a statement as a group on Tuesday when they confirmed they were against the Super League, and Klopp says they dealt with the issue impressively.
"I'm not surprised how the players dealt with it," he said.
"They are grown ups. It was very good what they did, say their opinion, it's not the first time they have done it and it won't be the last."
