Prince William has issued a statement on Twitter, where he confirmed his concerns about the European Super League proposals.
Sunday evening and the whole of Monday have both been dominated by the news that 12 clubs – including Manchester City and Manchester United – have signed a letter of intent to participate in the Super League.
The proposals have received widespread condemnation from supporters, as well as experts and former players.
Now, a Royal Family member has had his say, with Prince William – who is the current president of the Football Association – taking to Twitter to voice his concerns.
The Duke of Cambridge sent a message that read: Now, more than ever, we must protect the entire football community – from the top level to the grassroots – and the values of competition and fairness at its core.
“I share the concerns of fans about the proposed Super League and the damage it risks causing to the game we love. W.”
It’s been a day dominated by key figures in the world of football, and elsewhere, stating their disgust about the plans for a breakaway league.
UEFA president Alexander Ceferin slammed United’s chief Ed Woodward for backtracking, after he supposedly signed off on potential Champions League reforms last week.
Ceferin said: “I have seen many things in my life. I was a criminal lawyer.
“I have never seen people like that. If I start with Ed Woodward, he called me last Thursday evening saying he’s very satisfied with and fully supports the reforms and the only thing he wants to talk about was Financial Fair Play, when obviously he had already signed something else.”
