Another former player who disagrees with the ESL is the German World Cup winner Bastian Schweinsteiger, who used his Twitter account to express how saddened he was with the news.

If the Super League is realized, it will destroy football with its national leagues as we know it and this is very sad thought to me,” he wrote.

The world of football has been highly vocal in its rejection of the decision taken by Manchester United, Liverpool, Manchester City, Chelsea, Arsenal, Tottenham, Real Madrid, Barcelona, Atlético Madrid, Juventus, Inter Milan and AC Milan. UEFA has utterly rejected the creation of the ESL and is considering options to ban the teams who joined from their competitions.
