Super League: Man United clarify why it broke away from UEFA
Joel Glazer, the Manchester United’s Co-Chairman has defended the club’s decision to join others in a breakaway from UEFA.
Glazer made it clear that the new Super League will “open a new chapter for European football”.
Manchester United are one of 12 founding members of the new breakaway league, which many pundits have described as a declaration of war on football.
The group of renegade European giants announced on Sunday that they had created a new competition to rival the Champions League.
Other Premier League clubs in this new league are Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City and Tottenham with Barcelona, Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid joining from Spain and Juventus, AC Milan and Inter representing Serie A.
Despite threats from UEFA, Premier League, FA, Serie A, and LaLiga, United’s owners, the Glazers, were believed to be one of the driving forces behind the Super League, which will see all 12 founding clubs share £3billion immediately.
“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.”
Manchester United had earlier confirmed their participation in the European Super League on their official channels.
Already the British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, has reacted angrily to the new European Super League and vowed that the UK government will support any action taken to prevent what he described as the “damaging” proposals.
