The creation of the European Super League has been widely condemned by the likes of the Premier League, UEFA and FIFA.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has now launched a scathing attack on the Super League and even compared it to the "cartel."

The 56-year-old said: "Be in no doubt we don't support it [...] it's not in the interests of fans or football.

"How can it be right to create a kind of cartel? If necessary to protect that principle of competition, we will seek a legislative solution."
