What an embarrassment we’ve become @LFC; imagine how many people who have come before us at this club have felt the same way. Jamie Carragher wrote on Twitter, “#SuperLeague.”
“The more I read about the European super league plans, the more it seems Liverpool’s owners must like empty stadiums because all they have done is increase the risk of another mass walkout,” Carragher wrote in his Telegraph column.
“As a former Liverpool player, it sickens me that my club’s name is being tarnished by the greed of an ownership group that wants to eliminate such risk by creating an atmosphere where we don’t have to fight for our success. That is the polar opposite of everything I believe football – especially in my city – stands for.]
“Being tainted by association with the European super league is bad enough, but Liverpool’s obvious leading role in endangering football’s competitive values – the very ideals that helped the club to rise from England’s second division to become six-time European champions – is a betrayal of a heritage they are trying to cash in on,” Carragher said.
Liverpool could face severe repercussions from FIFA and UEFA as a result of their participation in the European Super League.
