Wolverhampton Wanderers are reportedly ‘steadfast in their opposition’ to the European Super League proposal.
The story that has rocked football continues to rumble on, with the odious president of Real Madrid Florentino Perez last night offering his justifications for the plans.
Today, Premier League clubs that are not the ‘Big Six’ – or the Greedy Six as people are rightly now dubbing them – will meet to discuss the situation.
The 14 teams are set to discuss a path forwards.
This morning, Everton have produced an official statement condemning the ESL proposal, and it’s likely other clubs will follow suit.
Wolves are yet to release a statement on the matter, but the Athletic have reported that the club are completely opposed to the plans.
According to their report: “It’s understood that even if Wolves were invited to join such a league, they would decline due to the disrespect it shows to the tradition of the English game and its lack of competitiveness.”
They also include previous comments from Nuno, who said in January: “This (an ESL) is my biggest fear. If you have a crisis, the strong will survive – what about the rest?”
Wolves should follow Everton’s lead
It would be great if Wolves would put out an official statement like Everton have and several other teams from Europe.
It is really important now that clubs come together in solidarity against this disgraceful proposal.
It’s about cranking up the pressure on these 12 clubs, getting them to crack and ultimately stopping this grotesque idea that will ruin football.
