David Beckham attacks the Super League, he who is supported by players from Real Madrid.
Inter Miami owner David Beckham has expressed opposition to the European Super League proposal, which was announced on Sunday night.
Beckham has played for three of the clubs involved in the project – Manchester United, Real Madrid and AC Milan – but he is concerned about the direction football is taking.
Real Madrid players Luka Modric, Lucas Vazquez, Marcelo and Alvaro Odriozola all “liked” his Instagram post, as did James Rodríguez, Luca Zidane and former players like Luis Figo.
“I’m someone who loves football,” Beckham’s Instagram post read.
“This has been my life for as long as I can remember. I’ve loved it since I was a young kid as a fan, and I’m still a fan now.
“As a player and now as an owner, I know our sport is nothing without the supporters. We need football to be for everyone.
“We need football to be fair and we need competitions based on merit. If we don’t protect these values, the game we love is in danger …”
As a reminder, Paris Saint-Germain, the other major European club for which Beckham has played, have so far not agreed to participate.
Since the announcement of the creation of the Super League, European football has split into two parts. On the one hand, the twelve founding clubs of the Super League, on the other hand UEFA and FIFA, which are against this competition.
