Everton board of directors take aim at big six in scathing Super League statement

Posted by

Everton are the latest club to come out against the news of a European ‘Super League’ being set up in-part by the Premier League’s ‘big six’.

In a scathing statement, the Merseyside outfit called for the clubs involved with organising the proposed breakaway tournament to “remember the privileged position they hold.”

The joint-announcement by Liverpool, Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur – along with several other European clubs – was welcomed with the warmth of a winter’s day.

Just as Leeds United did on Monday, Everton have now taken aim at the elitist owners of the ‘big six’ clubs, and you can read segments of their statement below, via Paul Joyce.

It should come as no surprise to see numerous Premier League clubs publicly condemning the proposed European ‘Super League’, as it goes against everything we know and love about football.

The beautiful game is for everyone and the pinnacle of the sport should not be fenced off, even if in-part, by the mega-rich, especially on the principle of garnering even more revenue.

Expect more clubs to follow Leeds and Everton’s example…
