The Prime Minister implored the Premier League rebellious clubs to rethink their plans, noting that their move amounted to betrayal of trust of the league and their fans.

“Plans for a European Super League would be very damaging for football and we support football authorities in taking action,” Johnson said in a statement on Sunday evening.

“They would strike at the heart of the domestic game, and will concern fans across the country.

“The clubs involved must answer to their fans and the wider footballing community before taking any further steps.”
