Rio Ferdinand and Gary Neville both gave short messages supporting Everton for the statement they released on Tuesday regarding the proposed European Super League.
Everton have shared a passionate statement on their official website condemning the six Premier League clubs that have signed up to the proposed Super League.
In a strong-worded statement, the club’s board of directors have spelled out their disgust at their six English rivals, and urged them to withdraw from the plans.
Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham are the Premier League clubs that have joined in the proposal to form the new midweek European competition.
Additionally, AC Milan, Atletico Madrid, Barcelona, Inter Milan, Juventus and Real Madrid are the other clubs involved.
Everton’s statement says the English clubs are behaving with “preposterous arrogance”, and that they are “tarnishing the reputation of our league and the game”.
Ex-Premier League stars Ferdinand and Neville, who are also well recognised pundits now, have given brief responses to the Everton message.
Go on Everton ❤️ https://t.co/mImcCkubPj
