ANGER mounted last night at plans for a European Super League — with the Government threatening to punish clubs that break away.
Owners of the Premier League’s Big Six joiners were dubbed “snakes” by Uefa, while stars may be banned from the Euros and World Cup.
Furious fans protested outside the Prem’s “Big Six” clubs today amid a wave of anger at plans for a European Super League.
Current and former players, celebrities, politicians and royalty were also united in revulsion at what was called a “war on football”.
Owners of Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Man City, Man United and Spurs — among the 12 breaking away — were dubbed “liars and snakes”.
A £4.6billion pot would be split among them under the plans while there would be no relegation from the new league. But ministers last night threatened punishment taxes and visa restrictions on the clubs — while Uefa warned players would be banned from international competition.
Writing in The Sun today, Boris Johnson promised fans: “It is your game – and you can rest assured that I’m going to do everything I can to give this ludicrous plan a straight red.”
FA President Prince William also voiced his concern at the proposals, adding: “Now, more than ever, we must protect the entire football community.”
