The European Super League has brought a lot of drama to the football front, that the sacking of Jose Mourinho as Tottenham boss hasn’t really gained much of the media attention.
There have been lots of threats and counter threats, as football stakeholders are at loggerheads with the European Super League, with UEFA branding it as a greedy organisation who wants to steal the game from the fans.
Manchester United have confirmed their participation in the closed league, and are one of the twelve founding clubs in the European Super League.
Manchester United’s Co-Chairman Joel Glazer is one of the key principals in the newly formed league, and he claims the new Super League will ‘open a new chapter for European football’.
“By bringing together the world’s greatest clubs and players to play each other throughout the season, the Super League will open a new chapter for European football,” said the United owner, who has been appointed Vice-Chairman of the Super League.
“[It will] ensure world-class competition and facilities, and increased financial support for the wider football pyramid.”
