Jamie Carragher credits Leeds United in heartfelt Twitter message about European Super League

Leeds United have been praised by Sky Sports pundit and Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher for their opposition to the proposed European Super League.

The football world has been rocked by news that 12 European teams, including six Premier League sides, have agreed to establish a new midweek competition governed by its ‘Founding Clubs’.

The proposal involves the clubs forming their own competition to rival the UEFA Champions League, and it has been widely criticised by many pundits, clubs and fans.

In Monday night’s Premier League meeting with Liverpool at Elland Road, Leeds made their feelings clear on the proposal in a number of ways.

Inside the stadium, Whites players wore T-shirts saying ‘earn it’ underneath the Champions League logo and ‘football is for the fans’, and a banner behind one goal had the same message.

Indeed, Leeds fans and Liverpool fans united in protest ahead of the game, and Carragher admits that, while he was initially “resigned” to the proposals, he now felt much more optimistic that they could be thwarted.

 

AC Milan, Arsenal, Atletico Madrid, Chelsea, Barcelona, Inter Milan, Juventus, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United, Real Madrid and Tottenham Hotspur have all signed up to the European Super League.

It is anticipated a further three clubs are planning to join ahead of the inaugural season, which, according to the clubs, “is intended to commence as soon as practicable”.
