The European Super League has been the talk of the weekend, as many of football’s elite clubs in Europe’s big five leagues are keen on being part of the proposed competition which seems to support only the traditional big sides.

The proposed idea has brought all manner of reactions, and most of which seems to be against it rather than in favour of it.

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has now reacted to the matter and doesn’t seem to be in support of the European Super League, as he believes that it will ruin football for the fans.

The UK government’s Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport has already criticised the plans and now the Prime Minister has given his own take and has urged the Premier League top clubs clubs to rethink their plans.

“Plans for a European Super League would be very damaging for football and we support football authorities in taking action,” said Johnson in a statement on Sunday evening.

“They would strike at the heart of the domestic game, and will concern fans across the country.

“The clubs involved must answer to their fans and the wider footballing community before taking any further steps.”
