Greek PM Mitsotakis slams plan for breakaway Super League

Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis weighed in on the controversy sparked by a decision by 12 of Europe’s top football clubs on Sunday to launch a breakaway Super League. With a post on Twitter, Mitsotakis slammed the initiative as “wrong.”

“The possibility of the unexpected makes football so exciting. The proposal from a few wealthy European clubs to form a closed league totally cuts against the history and tradition of the game. It is wrong – plain and simple. Fans will not accept it,” the Greek Premier wrote in tweets both in Greek and English.

Among the founding members feature Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur, Real Madrid, Barcelona, Atletico Madrid, Inter Milan, Juventus and AC Milan, the new organization said in a statement.
