Leeds United set for major Premier League meeting on Tuesday - Sky Sports
Leeds United are set for a major Premier League meeting on Tuesday morning, according to Sky Sports News.
The news of a European Super League has shaken world football, with both Manchester clubs, Chelsea, Spurs and Arsenal included.
The Whites will be joined by the other 13 clubs not involved, with Andrea Radrizzani expected to attend the virtual meeting.
Sky Sports confirmed the news on Monday afternoon on their live blog following the reaction to the new competition announced over the weekend.
“The Premier League will hold a meeting with 14 clubs on Tuesday morning to discuss the European Super League,” they wrote.
“The six clubs part of the proposed Super League – Manchester United, Liverpool, Manchester City, Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham – are not included.
“The virtual meeting will discuss the current situation and will be chaired by Premier League CEO Richard Masters.”
This is the perfect response to this ludicrous news, and hopefully, the other 14 can rise up and come up with a resolution to these plans.
Strong reports have suggested that all six clubs could be removed from the Premier League and the Champions League, leaving the door wide open for others to start their own legacies.
Leeds could be handed the chance to lift numerous pieces of silverware in the near future should that happen, but this is just rumoured for now.
It will all come down to these clubs forcing the others to make a decision, and although the financial gain is huge, they would surely back down eventually, right?
Pressure is bound to start rising after this meeting, and if all 14 clubs agree on a joint outcome, the top-six clubs will have to respond.
This could get messy.
