The worlds of football and politics have spoken out against the new proposal of a European Super League. Former Manchester United striker Eric Cantona and Leeds manager Marcelo Bielsa have called for the competition to be stopped. ‘The fans are the most important thing, they have to be respected,’ said Cantona. In Westminster, the UK government said they will aim to prevent the league taking place. ‘We will put everything on the table to stop this from happening,’ said culture secretary, Oliver Dowden.
