Wolverhampton Wanderers have declared themselves champions of the Premier League for the 2018/19 season, according to their Twitter bio.
Finishing seventh that season, the club were the highest finishers outside of the ‘Big Six’, who all declared on Sunday that they are forming the European Super League.
Manchester City won the league that campaign, finishing a point ahead of Liverpool.
The announcement of the European Super League appears to have prompted Wolves’ tongue-in-cheek response.
The twitter bio update has generally been well received, with some fans ironically requesting a belated title parade.
Although we are yet to hear from a member of the coaching or playing staff in an official capacity following the announcement of the Super League, this is not the first time the club have posted social media content which undermines the proposals.
This Tiktok video shows Wolves’ players, including Daniel Podence, making opposition players of the ‘Big Six’ teams look foolish.
Podence himself took to Instagram yesterday to outline his concern that the European Super League would have on the integrity of the Champions League.
Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo is expected to speak on Friday ahead of Sunday’s home fixture versus Burnley. It is likely that the boss will condemn the European Super League alongside the managers of the other 14 Premier League teams who are not involved.
Nuno has previously spoken about the future of the game. Back in January he spoke candidly about the possibility of a breakaway league. Until Friday we will be relying upon Wolves’ excellent social media team to keep us in the loop.
