According to Sky Sports, the Premier League will hold a meeting with the 14 clubs not involved in the European Super League to gain their views on the breakaway proposal.
The virtual meeting – set to take place tomorrow – will be chaired by Premier League chief executive Richard Masters, with Newcastle United MD Lee Charnley set to be present.
Crucially, the meeting will NOT involve any of the clubs involved in the European Super League – those six being Manchester United, Liverpool, Tottenham, Manchester City, Chelsea and Arsenal.
As Sky Sports’ Bryan Swanson explains below, it’s said the talks will looking to gain views from the 14 remaining clubs in order to determine what will happen next for those who’ve turned their back on the EPL:
It’s already been reported that Newcastle United ‘strongly oppose’ plans for a breakaway ‘Super League’ and you’d like to think that view will be shared by all 13 other clubs in tomorrow’s meeting.
The Premier League must stand firm and come down hard on the clubs pushing for this power grab threatening to ruin football for fans up and down the country, with the billionaire owners involved driven by nothing but greed.
