Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand believes the launch of the UEFA Super League is an embarassing disgrace.
As reported here on Futaa on Sunday, the likes of Manchester United, Man City, Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur decided to join the new Super League alongside other leading clubs in Europe.
“I think this breakaway group of teams, this is a war on football. It’s a disgrace. It’s embarrassing. And it goes against everything football is about,” Ferdinand said via Goal.
"It’s a disgrace, I can’t believe it. How have they got the audacity to do it in the climate we’re in at the moment with the pandemic around the world?
"It shows me that these people have no idea what football is about. It’s purely a business transaction, that’s it. There’s no thought for anyone else in the pyramid, there’s no consideration at all. I can’t believe it
"I can’t believe it. I’m sorry, I’m a Man United fan, I love the club, but I can’t stand by and support something like that at all,” Ferdinand concluded.
Meanwhile, the Red Devils next travel to Eland Road to take on Leeds United on Sunday for a League game.
