Gary Neville has made his feelings on the European Super League very clear.
The former Manchester United captain went on a passionate rant during Sky Sports’ Premier League coverage on Sunday, while the Red Devils won 3-1 against Burnley.
Sadly, no headline this morning was relevant to the match. Like Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s post-match interview was dominated by the new European Super League.
A breakaway league led by greedy football owners, who are doing all they can to turn the clubs in commercial cash cows if they haven’t already.
Neville has now urged Leeds United to protest against the idea of a European Super League this evening, though it’s important to note that this was a post made on social media and was a tongue-in-cheek comment.
Leeds players should walk to the side of the pitch and just let them keep scoring ! They don’t want competition…. https://t.co/PpLLZhwW1C

Liverpool are one of a number of clubs to announce they’re joining the European Super League, along with United, Man City, Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham.
I don’t think we will see the Leeds players standing aside to let Liverpool score without competition, which would be a middle finger to what they’re selfishly trying to achieve with the European Super League.
