Andrea Radrizzani sends three-word message to Gary Neville after passionate rant

Leeds United chairman Andrea Radrizzani has heaped praise on Gary Neville after his passionate rant on the European Super League.

The top-six clubs in the Premier League have reportedly signed up to a new competition, which is set to challenge plans to reform the Champions League [The Times].

Neville labelled Manchester United an “absolute joke”, with Monday’s opponents Liverpool also said to be included in plans.

Writing on his personal Twitter account on Sunday evening, Radrizzani made sure to shower praise on what the Sky Sports pundit brought up.

“Well said Gary,” he said.

Should this so-called Super League be created, the top-six clubs in the Premier League involved would immediately be kicked out of the competition.

UEFA released a statement alongside the governing body of each potential country which have clubs involved and confirmed that news on Sunday.

All this would potentially do is remove the financial power available to clubs in England, as most broadcasting deals would flood to these huge European ties.

The Whites would stand a potentially massive chance of winning the top division if this happened, but it would also remove the positivity of the current pyramid.

Radrizzani has spent years building this project to push the Whites back into the big time, and now it has happened, the benefits of that could be stripped away within one season.

Something needs to be done and quickly, or these big clubs could succeed with their power grab, and that would leave the others in complete potential disarray; this isn’t good enough.
