Ministers today warned that top clubs may be BANNED from buying foreign players over the hated European Super League plans.
Six Premier League clubs namely, Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester United, Arsenal, Tottenham and Manchester City are involved in the proposed European Super League.
Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden tonight threatened to halt visas and whack them with extra tax if the club giants didn’t step back from their threats to create an elitist new league.
He said in a stern statement in the House of Commons this evening that everything would be on the table – including looking at taxes, work permits, and more.
He slammed elitist clubs for deciding to “put money before fans” and said he was “appalled” to hear of last night’s “tone deaf” news for a super league which would exclude most, and disregard competition to get there.
The owners won’t be able to ignore the “near-universal roar of outrage” from fans across the nation, he stressed.
“This move indeed goes against the very spirit of the game.
