Fans Gather Outside Leeds Vs Liverpool In Mass Protest Against Super League

Hundreds of frustrated fans have gathered outside Elland Road before Leeds United's game with Liverpool on Monday to chant "F**k the Super League".

The group of supporters wielding large banners also chanted "Six greedy b*****ds" in reference to the Premier League sides who have announced their involvement in the breakaway competition.

It appears to be a joint protest from Liverpool and Leeds United fans. One set of supporters was holding a banner which read: "RIP LFC: Love for the working class game ruined by greed and corruption".

Next to that banner was another created by the Leeds United Trust bearing the message "Say no to Super League" alongside a quote from Marcelo Bielsa: "One of the reasons football is the most powerful sport in the world, is because the weak can beat the powerful."

More worryingly, there were also fan video footage of people reportedly chasing after the Liverpool team coach and greeting it with a hail of boos.

Which makes no sense, as it's not as if the Super League decision was made by any of the players or coaching staff of the clubs involved.

The 12 founding clubs involved in the Super League include six from the Premier League. Liverpool are joined by Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham.

The English sides are joined by a trio from Serie A in AC Milan, Inter Milan and Juventus; as well as three from La Liga: Atletico Madrid, Barcelona and Real Madrid.

Whether any of the clubs involved expected quite the level of backlash they have received, there is no way of knowing as they are yet to comment on the reaction.
