Real Madrid & Barcelona are blaming one Premier League club for ESL collapse

All of the six Premier League clubs involved in the European Super League announcement last week saw all of their owners really run their reputations through the mud.

Well, whatever was left of those reputations.

But Real Madrid and Barcelona are reportedly blaming Manchester City for how all Premier League pulled the plug on their existence in the European Super League, according to Sky Sports journalist Kavah Solhekol.

Mass protests against the ownerships of these clubs are still ongoing, after an anonymous group of Manchester United fans announced plans to protest next weekend prior to the Liverpool game.

However, it is also becoming clear that tensions are growing within the group of 12 clubs behind the initial European Super League. Solhekol’s sources are putting it down to a poor communications strategy, but we all know that it would not have worked regardless of that.

It looks like the Spanish duo – Real Madrid and Barcelona – are pointing the finger at City, but it has also been reported that United’s owners, the Glazer family, were the frontrunners behind the ESL.

I don’t think any of the owners come out of this looking well, though it is weirdly satisfying to see Florentino Perez argue his stance and completely crumble as a human being.
