The European Super League Has Been Exposed In Viral Tweet From Football Fan

A football fan has "exposed" plans for a European Super League after his tweet about a number of the clubs involved went viral.

On Sunday, a joint statement by 12 of Europe's leading clubs confirmed their plans for the new competition - with the Premier League's 'big six,' as well as three sides from both Serie A and La Liga among the founding teams.

The plans have been met with complete outrage and strong opposition from UEFA, FIFA, the Premier League, Serie A and La Liga.

And you will struggle to find a football fan who is in favour of the drastic overhaul financed by JP Morgan.

Over on Twitter, @danielyates_ echoed every supporter's thoughts when he debunked that this would be a "Super League" given the recent lack of success from many of the sides part of the breakaway.

He highlighted that despite their history, many of the big guns haven't won a league title for a long period of time. Juventus, meanwhile, now find themselves in fourth place in Serie A and continue to struggle in the Champions League knockout stages.

Daniel's tweet has blown up, with over 17,000 likes and 4,000 retweets as football fans share his sentiment.

The talk is that clubs could earn up to $400 million-a-year and former Manchester United defender Gary Neville pulled no punches with his view on the matter live on Sky Sports on Sunday.

"Deduct them all points tomorrow, put them at the bottom of the league and take their money off them... it's a criminal act against football fans in this country," Neville said after Manchester United's 3-1 win over Burnley.

"In the midst of a pandemic, an economic crisis, football clubs at National League level going bust nearly, furloughing players, clubs on the edge in League One and Two - and these lot are having Zoom calls about breaking away and basically creating more greed?"

Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund, Paris Saint-Germain and Porto have all turned down the chance to join the European Super League.
