The Super League is turning out to be a massively controversial issue at the moment
When the Super League had foraged its plans of making a foray into the football arena, the last thing the league would have envisaged is such severe backlash against it. Ever since the competition has announced its plans to saunter into the global circuit, the fraternity has been taken by aplomb.
Far from being welcomed with open arms, the Super League has been berated and belittled by every club and supporter associated with the game. Personnel involved with the twelve clubs set to be a part of the league have come out in full force as well with the likes of Jurgen Klopp, Thomas Tuchel and Pep Guardiola also questioning the need for the league.
Henderson Calls For PL Captains Meeting
After the Premier League’s 14 clubs asked for the six sides partaking in the league to be banned, Liverpool’s captain Jordan Henderson has now called for an emergency meeting. The Englishman has asked all Premier League captains to attend the meeting in a bid to discuss the Super League and the way forward to counter it.
The latest development comes in the wake of Liverpool’s James Milner and Jurgen Klopp tearing the Super League into shreds on Monday. Liverpool’s neighbour, Everton had also wiped the floor with the Super League with a strongly issued statement on Tuesday.
“On behalf of everyone associated with Everton, we respectfully ask that the proposals are immediately withdrawn and that the private meetings and subversive practises that have brought our beautiful game to possibly its lowest ever position in terms of trust end now,” Everton had said.
“Finally we would ask the owners, chairmen, and Board members of the six clubs to remember the privileged position they hold – not only as custodians of their clubs but also custodians of the game. The responsibility they carry should be taken seriously.
“We urge them all to consider what they wish their legacy to be.”
