Former English football icon David Beckham has reacted to the controversial idea of the European Super League on his Instagram page amid the harsh discussions.
Twelve of Europe’s leading football clubs have announced that they have agreed to form the European Super League as Founding Clubs. The offer includes clubs to create their own races to rival the UEFA Champions League.
The Premier League’s six major clubs include Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea, and Tottenham.
AC Milan, Arsenal, Atletico Madrid, Chelsea, Barcelona, Inter Milan, Juventus, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United, Real Madrid, and Tottenham Hotspur participated as ‘Founding Clubs’.
German giants Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund are not included in this group, and French champions Paris Saint-Germain are not included.
Beckham started his explanation by saying that he has been in football since he knew it and that he loved this sport very much. Beckham went on and said that everyone needs football to be fair and competitions based on merit. He said that as long as they do not protect these values, football will be in danger.
Here’s what David Beckham stated:
“I’m someone who loves football. It has been my life for as long as I can remember. I loved it from when I was a young child as a fan, and I’m still a fan now. As a player and now as an owner I know that our sport is nothing without the fans.
We need football to be for everyone. We need football to be fair and we need competitions based on merit. Unless we protect these values the game we love is in danger…”
