One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson has thrown his weight behind fan anger at the proposed European Super League mutiny, telling his nearly 36 million Twitter followers that the plans come from “greedy fuckers at the top.”

While it’s unlikely that Tomlinson’s beloved Doncaster Rovers will soon compete in the lower league at the highest level of European football, that hasn’t stopped the multi-award-winning musician from expressing solidarity with critics who say the plans are a wedge become the landscape of football as we know it.

Fans across Europe have come together to form a united front against this move. Protests are taking place outside Manchester United’s Old Trafford and on Leeds’ Elland Road, where one of the six English signatories, Liverpool, is playing tonight.

And the topic is widespread: this is a money robbery at the expense of the fans and the fans alone.

“Fuck the Super League and the greedy fuckers on top,” Tomlinson wrote online, perhaps using the language the more youthful element of his fan base may not be used to hearing.

Tomlinson is not alone, however. Aside from the legions of football fans who scourged their own teams for even thinking about the proposal, the move has been criticized practically every quarter.

In the UK, Prime Minister Boris Johnson has vowed to do everything in his power to prevent the plan from proceeding, while Prince William, the current President of the Football Association of England, has also voiced his stance.

Now, more than ever, we have to protect the entire football community – from the top level to the grassroots – and the core values ​​of competition and fairness. I share the concerns of fans about the proposed Super League and the damage it could do to the game we love. W.
