Twelve European clubs announced on Sunday night that they’d be forming a European Super League. Manchester United was one of the twelve clubs, and part of the ‘Big Six’ of EPL, to agree. Now, ex-United defender Ander Herrera condemns Super League and his former club for forming it.
Ander Herrera condemns Super League, and “the rich”, for ruining “the most beautiful sport on the planet”.
The former United player is the highest-profile player to denounce the breakaway league so far.
Herrara is currently playing for Paris Saint-Germain, who are in staunch opposition to the new league as well.
Last season, too, Herrera said he ‘felt that football was not considered the most important thing’ at United. On the other hand, at PSG, he feels he ‘breathes football on all sides’.
Now, he’s lashed out at his former club yet again, and he and United do not see eye to eye on the principle of football once more.
Taking to Twitter to vent his fury, Herrara wrote: “I fell in love with popular football, with the football of the fans, with the dream of seeing the team of my heart compete against the greatest.”
“I love football and cannot remain silent about this. I believe in an improved Champions League, but not in the rich stealing what the people created, which is nothing other than the most beautiful sport on the planet,” he added.
