European Super League “is wrong at every level” – Aston Villa Supporters Trust

0

A leading Aston Villa supporters’ group have blasted the proposed European Super League for: “Going against everything football stands for.” 
 
The European Super League plans have received large scale backlash from fans of football, both in England and in Europe.  
 
Aston Villa Supporters Trust Club Liason Officer Mo Razzaq said: “There needs to be some sort of consequence, (for the teams involved), the owners are trying to create a US franchise model and it is something that is completely alien in this country and in Europe… it is wrong at every level.”  
 
The proposals were revealed to the footballing world late on Sunday night, stating that six Premier League clubs along with six others from Spain and Italy, have signed up to take part in a closed-shop league.  
 
The Villa Supporters Trust spokesman praised James Milner for speaking out after Liverpool’s 1-1 draw at Leeds and encouraged managers and players to do the same.
 
He added: “We need other players and managers, who we understand are in a precarious position, but at the end of the day, we need to do what is right.” 
 
Mr Razzaq also encouraged fans across the country to make their voice heard.  
 
“If you’re part of a supporter’s group or trust, if you’re not join one, make your voice heard,” Razzaq said.  
 
“Write to your club, write to your MP. A few years ago there was a possibility of a 39th game, fans spoke up and it was shelved.”  
 
All football organisations and governing bodies have strongly opposed the European Super League, with UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin stating: “It is a spit in the face of all football lovers.”
