5 Manchester City stars delete anti-Super League social media activity


 

A number of Manchester City’s stars have made clear their displeasure with plans for a European Super League on social media on Tuesday.

ESL eyed

News of a potential shake-up to the European football landscape as we know it has of course taken centre stage across the globe over the last 48 hours.

This comes after twelve clubs – six from England, three from Spain and three from Italy – revealed plans to establish a new ‘Super League’.

The competition would see a total of fifteen of the continent’s finest break away from the current structures of the European game, to form their own Champions League alternative.

The widespread reaction to the proposal, which has been signed off on by Manchester United, Real Madrid, AC Milan and more, has been one of utter disgust.

UEFA, for one, have already laid down a number of threats, including the expulsion of all participating clubs from domestic competition, and a ban on any Super League-based players from both the European Championships and World Cup.

Citizens fume

And, as more and more high-profile figures make clear their stance on the ESL, over the course of Tuesday, players have begun to follow suit.

Marcus Rashford, for example, took to Twitter this afternoon to back fan protests against the proposal, whilst Jordan Henderson has called an emergency meeting between the Premier League’s captains for Wednesday.

And, as outlined above, although their activity has since been deleted, as many as five Manchester City stars too made their feelings known a short time ago.

The players in question come in the form of Raheem Sterling, Benjamin Mendy, Riyad Mahrez and Aymeric Laporte, all of whom took to Twitter to repost a quote on the part of Pep Guardiola, along with Joao Cancelo, who posted an anti-ESL message to his story on Instagram.
