Man United legend calls for fines on teams who withdrew from the Super League

Manchester United legend Garry Neville wants the teams who withdrew from the proposed European Super League to be fined.

Six teams from the Premier League including United had agreed to be part of the league and according to Neville, each one of them should be hit with a £100m fine after withdrawing.

"Quite incredible. I think large concern yesterday morning waking up thinking, for me particularly as a United fan, that Joel Glazer had put his name on a statement.

"Which, you think about what they went through in sort of the takeover of United, they withstood a barrage of abuse, it didn’t bother them, they just went through it. And you just thought it was going to be difficult for them to back down.

"They haven’t backed down yet, but the fact that City have obviously enacted the withdrawal procedure and it looks like Chelsea are on the way, it’s done. It’s finished. And they’ll have their PR teams, communications teams scrambling around now trying to make this look as lovely as possible in the next 24 hours, working out what the right time is to withdraw from it.

"Perez might have them on a £100million fine. I hope so! I hope Perez has got them on a massive fine to withdraw, the lot of them. And I hope they basically end up eating each other," Neville told Sky Sports.
