'Absolutely f**k off': Fans SLAM plot for European Super League
‘They do not care about the fans, they see them as customers and they take them for mugs’: Fans SLAM plot for breakaway competition, hitting-out at Premier League Big Six for driving the project
- Plans for a European Super League are set to be revealed on Sunday night
- The Premier League Big Six plus Italian and Spanish giants are involved
- Football supports are hitting-back, blasting the idea as a cash-grab
Football fans are furious about the European Super League, with supporters of the Premier League Big Six going against their teams over the breakaway.
As revealed by Sportsmail, an announcement is expected on Sunday night at 9:30, outlining plans for an initial 12-team league, with Real Madrid, Barcelona, Atletico Madrid, Juventus, AC Milan and Inter Milan joining the English sides.
UEFA are outraged too, asserting that ‘enough is enough’ and vowing to fight-back against the ‘cynical project’ which would destroy domestic and European football.
Big Six supporters are among those furious about the plans for a new European Super League
The breakaway, plotted by Real Madrid chairman Florentino Perez, had received big backlash
Supporters are unhappy with the concept which would see the domestic game crumble
Fans are behind UEFA, sending a tornado of posts slamming the concept.
‘Football supporters don’t agree on everything, but I think we can all agree that this idea of a European Super League can absolutely f**k off,’ @AnfieldRd96 wrote on Twitter.
@txmejackala added: ‘The European Super League literally epitomises what is wrong with this sport. We are seeing a vast amount of billionaires come into the sport and they want nothing, but power and control.
‘They do not care about the fans, they see them as customers and they take them for mugs.’
Stan Kroenke, the owner of Arsenal, will be one of the vice-chairman on the cynical project
‘This European Super League saga will be framed as a battle of money vs principles, but in reality it is battle of money vs money,’ was @anna_woodberry’s take.
The league will be a closed-shop affair run by it’s founding members, for it’s founding members.
Real Madrid president Florentino Perez will act as chairman having instigated the plot, which is backed by American banking giant JP Morgan.
The vice-chairmen being linen-up are Liverpool’s John W. Henry, Joel Glazer of Manchester United and Arsenal owner Stan Kroenke – with Juventus’ Andrea Agnelli pulling a U-turn on his intention to back UEFA, planning to become the fourth.
It’s not only fans of the clubs set to be left-out of the plot who are furious, with Man United supporter @markgoldbridge writing: ‘Absolutely hate the idea of a European Super League. Fans needs to stand together and do what we can do protest against it!.’
‘Imagine the type of fans this will breed. If you think the discourse is a mess of entitlement and emotional incontinence now, the Super League will make you yearn for now,’ @SebSB added.
