Man United join ESL
Plans for a European Super League were of course announced by 12 clubs on Sunday evening.
The proposition, at present, is dominated by English sides, who make up six of the participating members.
One of these is Manchester United, with owner Joel Glazer, now a vice-chairman for the ESL, having had the following to say:
Joel Glazer, who has given one interview to club media in 16 years of owning #MUFC + is never seen at Old Trafford: now the self-styled voice of âthe wider football pyramidâ + vice-chairman of âSuper Leagueâ.

Manchester United not worried about Premier League ban
Following yesterday’s announcement, a host of individuals and organisations alike have spoken out against the proposal.
One of these has of course been the Premier League, with reports having revealed that any side which opts to join the ESL will be banned from domestic competition.
However, it doesnât appear as though Manchester United are overly concerned with the prospect of the Premier League kicking them out.
According to the Mirror, the Red Devils do not believe that the English top-flight will have the nerve to ban them, along with fellow Super League clubs.
It is added that United view the Premier League’s threat to expel such teams as a hollow one that is ultimately not legally enforceable, with the belief shared at all six clubs that the competition would not survive without their respective participation.
