Paul McGrath condemns forming of European Super League

THE IRISH legend has called out the controversial decision made by some of football's biggest clubs.

Former Irish defender Paul McGrath has called out the forming of the European Super League.

This comes after news emerged on Sunday that the biggest clubs in England, Spain and Italy had all agreed to join the controversial Super League, much to the outrage of lots of people within football.

McGrath's former club Manchester United is one of the teams who are part of the breakaway.

He tweeted on Monday to say: "Sad. I remember when certain teams Fans, who I prefer to call Supporters, have supported them through thick and thin. Easily forgotten with the passing of time."

He tweeted on Sunday to say that he believes those who run football wish to ruin the game.

McGrath joins another Irish footballing legend in condemning the Super League, as Roy Keane called it out on TV on Sunday.

"I think it comes down to money and greed," he said.

"Obviously we've heard nothing from FIFA yet but it doesn’t sound good. Let’s hope it’s stopped in its tracks.

"We talk about the big clubs. Bayern Munich are one of the biggest clubs in the world – at least they’ve made a stand, which is a good start."

"Let's hope it is stopped in its tracks. It's just pure greed."

Meanwhile, Manchester United talisman Bruno Fernandes has seemingly come out against the Super League, reposting a message from his Portuguese teammate Daniel Podence.

Podence wrote: "The Ball. The Song. The Dream. The Zidane volley... Kaka’s Solo... Liverpool In Athens... Ole in Barcelona... Cris and Seedorf. There some things we just can’t really pay for."
