Who is the mystery club who could break away from the European Super League?

Big 6 offered second chance

In one of the biggest turns of the saga so far it appears that the solidarity spoken about in the statement of the clubs representing the Founding 12 of the European Super League is being tested.

UEFA president Aleksander Čeferin has offered an olive branch to the clubs of the 6 English sides and their owners to reconsider their decision.

“Gentlemen, you made a huge mistake,” Čeferin said. “Some will say it is greed, others (will say) disdain arrogance, flippancy or complete ignorance of England’s football culture. It does not matter.

“What does matter is that there is still time to change your mind. Everyone makes mistakes.”

Although, he did have one final jab at them.

“Come to your senses. Not out of love for football because I imagine some of you don’t have much of that.”

Cracks appearing?

Soon after Čeferin made his statement news began to surface that supposedly one of the 6 English teams was reconsidering their position.

Journalist Alex Wickham tweeted that he had heard of a potential split in the ESL Founding Club base.

‘Hearing from a source with knowledge that one of the big six English clubs is now seriously considering pulling out of the Super League They are accusing Liverpool and Manchester United — the 2 clubs leading the breakaway — of lying to them and “f***ing up” Major split in ESL,’ he wrote on Twitter.

The Times’ Martin Ziegler also produced a story on the topic in which it stated that they had found that emergency internal meetings were taking place at one club in particular:

Although Super League insiders insist that all 12 are committed to the project, The Times understands that at least one English club is having emergency internal discussions on the best way forward, with some of the executives deeply concerned about alienating their fans.

The question will be who? With Manchester United and Liverpool supposedly at the spearhead of the proposal from the English perspective, it would make more sense for one of Man City, Arsenal, Chelsea or Spurs to be the likely candidate.

How much face can now be saved, if any, some might argue? How heroic will any of the sides stand to look by being the first to pull out?

Many fingers of plenty will be crossed that this could be the first sign of cracks appearing in the ESL plans.

Although, other sources suggest this is simply a tactic to unsettle things.

Liverpool wobble?

Despite, as mentioned, Liverpool being one of the main protagonists leading the charge with Manchester United, they are the first to be named by German outlet BILD as the club reconsidering.

The info from BILD states that the Premier League clubs have been surprised by ‘the wave of anger’ from fans to being so ‘extreme.’

This though would be hugely surprising considering the position of the Reds’ owners in this movement.
