“Wider good of the game is a secondary concern” Founding Club board member exposes true Super League intentions

Good of the game secondary

It seemed almost obvious that the leading factor in the reason for the breakaway of the European Super League revolved around money.

However, that has now been outright confirmed to be true should reports from Sky Sports reporter Kaveh Solhekol turn out to be legitimate.

The journalist said that he had spoken with an anonymous source on one of the boards of the founding Premier League clubs who revealed many fears people had behind the breakaway’s motives are true.

“Very interesting information that we have been able to get in the last few minutes,” said Solhekol.

“The person we’ve been speaking to he can’t reveal his identity for obvious reasons but he is on the board of one of these six Premier League clubs who are breaking away to join this knew European Super League.

“What he’s telling us is that there are several board members at these six clubs who are opposed to joining the Super League but they feel they do not have the power to stop it.

“Some splits are emerging within the boards of these clubs who are breaking away, but it is important to state that the owners are still fully committed to breaking away and joining the Super League.

“We’ve also been told that the owners were fully expecting a backlash. They knew that their plans were going to be opposed and opposed vociferously. But we’re being told to be honest they’re not that worried about bad PR at the moment.

“We’re being told also that in general the owners view is this and this is a quote from a board member at one of the six clubs. ‘Our primary job is to maximise our revenues and profits the wider good of the game is a secondary concern.'”

Arsenal players to meet with club officials

Whilst players from other clubs such as Ander Herrera and Mesut Ozil are publicly stating their opposition to the European Super League, Arsenal’s playing staff are reportedly sitting down with the club’s executive Vinai Venkatesham.

The plans of the Super League will be explained and any concerns answered.

Many feel that the players hold the most power. Were there to be a boycott, revolt or protest, it would leave the ‘Founding Clubs’ with no one to play in the Super League.
