Aston Villa and Scotland star John McGinn has hit out at news of a European Super League as top clubs in Europe aim to go it alone.
English football’s ‘big six’ have stated their intentions to branch off as they join Italian and Spanish giants like Barcelona and Juventus in signing up for a breakaway league. It would likely see them leave their domestic competition and put clubs like McGinn’s Aston Villa and the rest of the football pyramid in a perilous position.
It could have an impact on McGinn’s future ambition. FIFA and UEFA have both stated that players would be banned from representing their national teams if they featured for a European Super League side, Manchester United one of the clubs involved linked with a move for McGinn. But the Aston Villa and Scotland man hardly seems bothered.
He’s taken to Twitter to oppose the plans, one of the first Premier League players to do so. McGinn hilariously remarked in reference to the Pro Evolution Soccer games: “Pro evolution names until the end of the season for them. Man Blue v Merseyside Red. Make them play with Minanda and Castillo up top.”
Scotland manager Steve Clarke will pick his squad for Euro 2020 next month, squads due to be submitted by June 1st and the Aston Villa star will be a key member of it.
