The fallout surrounding the new Super League proposal continues.
Sunday’s announcement that the Super League is going ahead has caused outrage, especially with half of the 12 confirmed teams coming from the Premier League.
Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur have all signed up for this bizarre new league.
It currently looks like an outrageous money grab; a league that goes against the idea of competition, closing off huge funds and prizes for the chosen few.
The clubs have been warned that they won’t be allowed to play domestic action, and players may not even be allowed to play for their countries.
On Sunday, two of the teams involved meet in the Carabao Cup final as Manchester City take on Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley.
Gary Neville is still outraged by the idea, and told Sky Sports (19/04, 7:55pm) that he thinks the game should be cancelled.
Neville believes drastic action needs to be taken, and believes that City and Spurs have both shown that they don’t care about English football, so shouldn’t have the chance to play for a trophy in just a matter of days.
“The idea that something happens would be to cancel the game on Sunday – City vs Spurs – who cares about it? They don’t care about it. They don’t care about English football, why should they play in the EFL Trophy?” said Neville.
“Things like that for me in this moment in time have to be on the table because they have to know that they can’t bully their way through everyone in this country and they are bullying the 14 clubs, the EFL, the FA,” he added.
