Gary Neville, a former Manchester United captain, has urged the Premier League to punish the ‘big six’ clubs that are trying to form their own European Super League.
All of the teams involved, he believes, should be docked points.
Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United, and Tottenham Hotspur are all expected to join the new breakaway league.
Barcelona, Real Madrid, Juventus, AC Milan, and Inter Milan are among the other teams.
“It’s a total scandal in the aftermath of Covid,” Neville said on Sky Sports.
“Manchester United and the other big six clubs should be ashamed of themselves for signing up for it.
“Does Arsenal play in the European Super League? They drew with Fulham just now!
“And Manchester United and Burnley are locked in a stalemate. I must admit that I am unable to concentrate on the game.
“They should dock all six teams that signed up for it, subtract points from all of them; to do it during the season is a joke.”
