Liverpool supporters have taken to social media to applaud Tribus Watches for pulling out of their sponsorship agreement with the club after news of a European Super League.
The company took to Twitter to release a statement saying that they could not support the principals of a European Super League, and as an official partner of Liverpool, they did not wish to be affiliated with a club that was due to compete in the planned competition.
The Reds, as well as every other English team who was set to play in the European Super League, all came out last night to confirm they had withdrawn from the competition as reported by BBC Sport, and for supporters of Liverpool, they applauded Tribus Watches for their decision to end their sponsorship with the club, with some fans claiming it will hurt the club owners where it hurt most.
Here’s what a few Liverpool supporters had to say about the news on Twitter…
Brilliant this well done. A principled stance in the face of unprincipled ownership 👏👏👏✊ https://t.co/l5Dccd0r2T
