Mesut Özil and Ander Herrera speaks out against the European Super League
Kids grow up dreaming to win the World Cup and the Champions League - not any Super League. The enjoyment of big games is that they only happen once or twice a year, not every week. Really hard to understand for all football fans out there...⚽💔— Mesut Özil (@MesutOzil1088) April 19, 2021

Managers and players should not be answering questions about this
Lots of managers, Thomas Tuchel and Jurgen Klopp for starters, are going to be put right on the spot about the European Super League. It should be the owners who are fronting up & explaining themselves but obviously I'm living in a dream world to even contemplate that happening.— Phil McNulty (@philmcnulty) April 19, 2021
The owners and chief execs privy to the Super League talks, who gave it the green light, should be fronting up and answering questions. Managers and players that have been in the dark - the latter group largely reading the news when we did - shouldn't have to take the hits.— Melissa Reddy (@MelissaReddy_) April 19, 2021
