Johnson thinks that football teams must answer to fans
Prime Minister Boris Johnson believes that the proposals of the Premier League could prove harmful and dangerous to football.
In fact, the idea is that of a separate competition, but first all clubs should take into account their fans.
Some teams including Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Tottenham and Manchester City joined the proposal. They should flank Italian and Spanish teams, including Milan, Inter and Juventus (Italy) and Atletico, Real Madrid and Barcelona (Spain).
However, UEFA didn’t react in the best way to the thought that these teams, the big six, could participate in a new competition. In fact, UEFA and other associations have taken steps to ensure that this project fails. Even Boris Johnson agrees with this opinion, and in fact on Twitter showed support for the football authorities, certainly more competent.
Plans for a European Super League would be very damaging for football and we support football authorities in taking action.
They would strike at the heart of the domestic game, and will concern fans across the country. (1/2)

Even Sadiq Khan agrees with the Prime Minister and says that football is for everyone and not just an elite. The English FA has stated that it will undertake not to authorize any competition that could compromise English football. It’s also prepared, where appropriate, to take legal action.
