‘We Should Drop A Legislative Bomb’ Journalist Reveals What Prime Minister Reportedly Said About Super League

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has reportedly told Premier League executive Richard Masters that the government are willing to use legislation to stop the Super League from going ahead. 

Daily Mail journalist Mike Keegan, who has been at the forefront of the reporting of the story, says Johnson made a promise to Masters during talks that were held today:

West Ham and the other 13 top-flight teams have spoken out against the formation of the competition, which is set to include six English clubs: Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea, Tottenham and Arsenal.

Despite the proposed tournament being widely condemned, not one of the teams has decided to break ranks yet, with many believing the huge finances behind the plans will make them reluctant to back down.

Each of the 12 clubs in the Super League will be handed £310m upfront, with another £130m to be given out at the end of the first season.
