Gary Neville has called the latest idea of a European Super League “an absolute scandal”. Neville made his comments during the first half of Manchester United’s match against Burnley on Sunday, where he was co-commentating. The former England international says all teams who have agreed to the proposals should have points deducted this season.
“I’m not against the modernisation of football competitions,” Neville said on Sky Sports.
“We have the Premier League, we have the Champions League, I don’t think anyone can deny.
“But I think to bring forward proposals in the midst of Covid, in the midst of the economic crisis, is an absolute scandal.
“United, and the rest of the ‘Big Six’ clubs that have signed up to it, against the rest of the Premier League, should be ashamed of themselves.
“The European Super League – are Arsenal in that? They’ve just drawn with Fulham, Manchester United are drawing with Burnley.
“I can’t concentrate on the game, me, they should deduct all six teams that have signed up to it.
“Deduct points from them all, to do it in a season is a joke. Anyway, let’s move on.”
