Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Ander Herrera emerged as one of the first players within Europe’s top five leagues to publicly oppose the new European Super League.
This new proposed competition would see 12 of the biggest clubs in Europe join forces to create a closed competition with no relegation system put into place.
PSG is not among the founding clubs that have so far signed off on this new proposal. And for Herrera, he sees that a European Super League is not what is best for football at the moment, which he detailed further on Twitter.

Fellow former Spanish international and Lazio goalkeeper Pepe Reina applauded Herrera’s stance against the European Super League, which is one that many other players can certainly come to an agreement with.

For the moment, Lazio is still striving to fight for a top-four spot in next season’s Champions League competition, which could end up being without a multitude of notable powerhouse clubs.
