UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has slammed the new European Super League, warning the government will do everything it can to make sure the new team “doesn’t go ahead in the way that it’s currently being proposed”.
He said: “These clubs are not just great global brands – of course they’re great global brands – they’re also clubs that have originated historically from their towns, from their cities, from their local communities, they should have a link with those fans, and with the fan base in their community.”
Johnson added that he would work with football authorities opposed to the move: “I don’t think that it’s good news for fans, I don’t think it’s good news for football in this country.”
A statement from the new competition said: “AC Milan, Arsenal, Atlético Madrid, Chelsea, Barcelona, Inter Milan, Juventus, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United, Real Madrid and Tottenham Hotspur have all joined as founding clubs.
