Jordan Henderson Calls For Emergency Meeting Between Premier League Captains Over European Super League

Jordan Henderson has called for an emergency meeting with all captains of Premier League clubs to discuss the European Super League.

Players, as well as fans, have been left shell-shocked by Sunday's bombshell announcement and the Liverpool skipper, a respected leader among his professionals, wants to address the situation with his fellow captains.

As per Mike Keegan from the Daily Mail, Henderson's meeting would include representatives from those involved and those not part of the controversial breakaway league.

It's said the aim of the conference would likely be to find a common ground for how players can respond to the plans that have been widely condemned throughout football and respective governments.

In arranging the meeting and addressing a much-maligned issue with his peers, Henderson is assuming a similar role to the one he took on a few months back when he spearheaded the creation of a fund that raised millions for the NHS in the peak of coronavirus crisis.

With Henderson currently out injured,Liverpool vice-captain James Milner was the first player from the Premier League champions to talk about the European Super League after the 1-1 draw with his former side Leeds United.

The former England international did not sugarcoat his opinion in the slightest.

"I can only say my own opinion; I don't like it and I hope it doesn't happen, for the same reasons as everyone else," Milner told Sky Sports post-match.

Prior to the game, Liverpool's bus was booed by Leeds supporters who displayed banners condemning the European Super League and Milner felt that wasn't fair on his team.

He added: "The players obviously have no say so the welcome we got to the ground tonight felt a bit unjust because we're here to play football and have no control over it."

Leeds striker Patrick Bamford, who, along with his teammates, wore t-shirts in the warm-up that irked Jurgen Klopp, claimed there wasn't one football fan who was happy about the shocking news but also questioned where the same uproar was for tackling racism within the sport.

It's been reported that Harry Maguire 'confronted' Manchester United executive Ed Woodward during a Zoom meeting in which the players shared their displeasure over the European Super League.

United skipper Maguire was said to be unhappy with the players being left in the dark and manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer being thrown under the bus.
