Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford has shown his views about the plans for a European Super League.

Rashford posted a photo of the Stretford End on Twitter, displaying a sign quoting Matt Busby – ‘Football is nothing without fans’.

Rashford’s discontent is clear and we’ve seen the power of his reach when he sets his mind to a cause before.

United are one of the six English clubs who have signed up to join a breakaway Super League, which would be a closed shop they would qualify for every year regardless of league performance.

Former United captain Gary Neville urged Rashford on last night’s Monday Night Football to speak out against the proposals.

Yesterday, Bruno Fernandes posted on his Instagram story against the plans, saying that football cannot be bought.

Some former Red Devils have also had their say and made their views clear.

Former United midfielders Ander Herrera and Bastian Schweinstiger – both signed by Louis van Gaal – have voiced their opposition.

 

And arguably United’s most iconic player Eric Cantona has also spoken out against the plans.

Two talented United youngsters Dillon Hoogwerf and Arnau Puigmal have also put their head above the parapit.

One of the best ways to bite back at this proposal is for more and more players to make their views clear.

They’ve been placed in a predicament not of their own making but they have the power to change it.

As mentioned above, Rashford hasn’t shied away from social causes before and his power to unite people is needed once more on this issue which goes beyond club rivalries and pertains to the future of football in this country.

That’s underlined by the fact that Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson has reportedly called a meeting of all 20 Premier League skippers and United in Focus supports anything the Reds man does if it forces a u-turn on this.
