Tottenham joined the Premier League’s top six in their latest effort to break away from the Champions League by forming the European Super League.
The English sides have been joined by Real Madrid, Barcelona, Atletico Madrid and three other teams in Italy, including Juventus.
This bold move has stirred some controversy with UEFA fighting hard to ensure that the new competition doesn’t take place.
Spurs have been struggling to qualify for the Champions League in the last two seasons and this new competition guarantees them a slot in a competition that sees them face the best clubs and players in the world.
It is something refreshing and a good way to escape the top-four race in the Premier League.
Not all their fans agree to the proposal and their Supporters’ Trust has also slammed the decision in a statement.
They posted the statement on their Twitter account, but some fans saw the positive side of things. Here are some of their reactions:
Levy is a genius for even getting us in this conversation. If the others go do we stay where we are? I’m not for it but if this happens and we’ve been invited do we turn it down? How can we?— JaiP (@JaiP72) April 19, 2021
Accept the changes, Support the club and be grateful we are one of Founding clubs in my opinion…— #MourinhoToTheSuperLeague (@nadeemboolaky) April 19, 2021
I’m so confused. Football has been run and won by money for as long as I can remember. Titles have been bought by Man Utd, Chelski and Man City. How come all that was fine and now this isn’t?!? Just a continuation of the norm if you ask me.— Nelly (@rephsok) April 19, 2021
Unfortunately we’re nothing in this league. It was going ahead with or without us and I for one would rather be in it than not— Nafa Brown (@nafabrown1212) April 19, 2021
Take it as a sign of spurs progress. Living in the past, is this not what is constantly holding spurs back— Darren White (@darrensuperspur) April 19, 2021
