Leeds and rest of Premier League furious with European Super League six
Leeds United and the rest of the Premier League clubs are “fuming” with the six clubs who are forming the European Super League, according to Alex Crook.
The talkSPORT journalist wrote on his personal Twitter account on Monday morning that while there is a lot of anger, there is hope that their plan can be “thwarted” by denying players international football and the role fans could play in boycotting matches.
Told the rest of the Premier League clubs are fuming with the Super League six but there is a confidence their plan can be thwarted by denying their players the right to play international football. Also fans have a part to play by boycotting matches.

On Sunday night, Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham were confirmed to be six of the 12 teams who’ll be included in the closed-entry ESL.
Get them gone
If these so-called big six teams think they’re better than anyone else in the Premier League and have a god-given right to all the money in the game, they don’t deserve a place in any domestic competition.
Leeds are one point behind Arsenal, who claim to be a founding member of the ESL on Twitter.

Leeds have more of a history than Manchester City and Tottenham and haven’t had to rely upon Russian oil money to fund their rise like Chelsea.
We are one of the best and most proud teams in the country and even if we were invited to the ESL, we would be appalled.
The ESL stands for everything that fans have come to hate about football. It’s all about money and it’s all motivated by greed.
If these six clubs are kicked out of the Premier League and denied access to European football next season then Leeds could stand a chance of playing in the Champions League next season.
It was Andrea Radrizzani’s dream to take us back to the big time. Let’s hope his dream is realised and these six chances are booted out of the English game.
