  • Respect for Rio!

  • No real fans want this at all.

  • Who cares

  • "YANKS!" OH REALLY! I bet anybody and everybody with indigenous heritage from London to the far east to United States must be either turning over in their graves or alive and throwing up. PLAYERS/FANS: This is our game INDIGENOUS EVERYWHERE: are saying hold my beer. 🍻🍺

  • The working mans game has been exploited by one of the deadly sins.....GREED !

  • Those rich club owners know the price of everything, but the value of nothing.

  • HAHAHAHAHA! The breakaway civilization is here!

  • Last week i was angry... Now I'm just sad😢

  • hmmm 'a war against Football!'. Very unwise words from Rio Ferdinard but apart from that everything else is fairly accurate. Fairly accurate - For him too not get too carried away!

    • I really can't listen to these retired footballers, players who earned millions per year in the same system the new league is based off of, money. The premier league has

  • Man i dont like football.

    • I really can't listen to these retired footballers, players who earned millions per year in the same system the new league is based off of, money. The premier league has

  • We as the fans determine whether the teams will earn or not. Without us watching those clubs play means no ad revenue and that is the major revenue earner for any club. At the end of the day, the money they thought they would make will remain to be just a dream.

    • It’s very simple: Americans intervening in European football...

  • Someone’s gotta contact Elon Musk to buy all 12 clubs and cancel the deal lol

    • Good job.. keep up the good work.?

  • The rich getting richer! Rio wasn't saying that when collecting obscene pay cheques!

    • @mikin lirou Agreed, no need to apologise.

    • should be run by pros who know what they are doing and should be owned in large part by the people who are supporting them, i.e. Fans. Sorry, rant over.

  • Proud Boy

  • Rio=Legend!

    • ICC does that all the time... There are permanent members of icc and temporary poor countries have to qualify.

  • Barcelona wants to avoid playing with Bayern again! 🤣

  • the world. Well done Rio, Gary and others for speaking out.

    • Money has killed the game, money and the greed that goes with it.

  • All I got to say as an American is welcome to the National Football League 😅

    • And now the next step is to snub Dubia WC, built on slavery, and FIFA greed .

  • Ferdinand is going straight into my weekend league team.

  • If every match is exciting, no match is exciting.

  • with the super league who developes the players , reason for the structure of soccer system needs to stay as is.

  • Time for fans to start buying in to their clubs. Its the only way to ensure players voices are listened to without direct government intervention with a supporters council or similar being implemented. If enough players buy shares and form a coalition ye can have a supporters based voice in local teams.

  • I really can't listen to these retired footballers, players who earned millions per year in the same system the new league is based off of, money. The premier league has destroyed English football. Look at any team now, where are the English players? and it is not as if the up and coming local lads are getting a chance to move elsewhere. Clubs should be run by pros who know what they are doing and should be owned in large part by the people who are supporting them, i.e. Fans. Sorry, rant over.

  • Can’t say it enough, I’m even prouder of being a Bayern fan. Bayern going against this shows how much the team cares about the fans.

  • It’s very simple: Americans intervening in European football...

  • Are there any videos that explain this in super basic language that someone from the USA that doesn't follow football can understand?

  • Crystal Palace beating Liverpool in big games? Can’t lose that. I’m a Liverpool fan and I love now nail biting those games can be.

    • Why is'n Rio running this country he do a better job what a speech well said Rio

  • Right 100%

  • ICC does that all the time... There are permanent members of icc and temporary poor countries have to qualify.

    • And one country rule the ICC bcs of money.

  • Spurs big six LMAO.

  • And now the next step is to snub Dubia WC, built on slavery, and FIFA greed .

  • Money has killed the game, money and the greed that goes with it.

  • Owners are not English and dont care about the fan. Just when they dont buy their junk merchandise

  • Now is a great opportunity for the English premier league to start under a new umbrella with new morals and no money enhancements to any clubs, even budgets across every team and only skill and hard work makes the team better.

  • Says the man who said “if Newcastle fans don’t like their ownership why don’t they buy the club themselves?” Man of the fans? Do me a favour..he lost touch with “real football” years ago 🤣

  • 𝑺𝒖𝒃𝒄𝒓𝒊𝒃𝒆 𝒎𝒆 𝒑𝒍𝒆𝒂𝒔𝒆

  • As for PSG, it doesn't need the money from the ESL. The owners can pay more to each club, the league and are not in need of some guilt cash. I don't get why Man City would agree to that scam. They are very well loaded and can secure whoever they want, whatever they want roughly speaking.

  • I dont like the ESL nor I want it but there are a lot of false information being mentioned here. The ESL was not planning to shut down national championship nor the UEFA‘s organized European competition. Also their business plan said that ~6.5B would be passed down to the national leagues, so that would support the grassroot movement. This is much more than anything UEFA had even imagined. Nevertheless, I hate the idea.

  • C'mon BRIT-SUPER LEAGUE which could replace Carabao Cup content Big 6 EPL, 2 Glasgow Clubs, 1 FA Cup Winner & 1 SFA Cup Winner & 2 qualified clubs from both EPL & SPL (end season raises at top tables). Yeaa.

  • _PURE EURO-SNOBBS!!!_ _Please don't try to call it the AMERICAN Super League that's really *F---D-UP._ _1. American owners were three/3 out of the 12._ _2. The fans/players/owners didn't riot when David Beckham bought LAFC. WHY? We are aware of the origins of SOCCER._ _The MLS doesn't like the Super League either. But it's about the fans._ _(right?????)---INCLUDING AMERICAN SOCCER _FANS (RIGHT?!!)*_. WRONG IT'S ABOUT EURO-SNOBBS!!_

  • Why is'n Rio running this country he do a better job what a speech well said Rio

  • it's like if Spain, Brazil, Argentina, England, Germany, Italy and France were like, we should form our own world cup where we are the only ones who are allowed to win.

    • @DonQwantsyou Croatia made it to the world cup final in 2018, they beat England + Mexico and Sweden made it to the 16th round over Germany in 2018. these are just a few examples, so they don't always win.

    • so what?, they always win anyways

  • Rio 👏👏👏👏

  • Did this bloke not cheat on his dying wife? Morals?

  • Respect

  • 01:30 being rewarded for winning, being punished for not winning ? think this guy should transfer to the iraq squad.

  • I don't even like football (was watching UFC promos) but I love Rio. What a lovely, grounded man he is

  • Please can somebody tell me this ESL is an April fool....

  • BT and Skysports pretending it’s for the “fans” whilst fleecing their customers, fake outrage indeed.

  • good stuff, but no one pointing out how perfect that beard is tho

  • Maybe if he is not happy with the Man United ownership, him and his mates can club together and buy it? After all, that was his suggestion if Newcastle fans were unhappy with their ownership

  • People dont understand FIFA and uefa is the bad ones pocketing money for decades. Scandals after scandals bribe after bribe” Qatar 2022 how”🧐 It’s better to have 2 organizations so people can chose

  • Is just football tho

  • money is the root of all evil

  • football lost the plot a while ago . stuff the big clubs. overrated alot of the time anyway

  • What a joke everyone moaning and complaining and at the end of the day it’s organisations like sky and BT sport have ruined football yet nobody does anything about that they still continue to buy their season tickets and yet they can’t even watch a game in the flesh

  • If everyone hates it...then who do they think will support this new league???? If they do it...will the fans stand together and BOYCOTT every game????

  • Love how these people, Europeans and other internationals, chastising these owners for being greedy and ignoring what makes up the game, the game and traditions! I love it. American sports can learn from them. There is more in life than just greed.

  • I’m not sure if he’s talking about the super league or uefa/ fifa

  • the super league sounded cool

  • Do not forget that that Real Madrid with a shotload of titles and money are the founders of this nonsense. want to cut down the super league tree? start with the roots: Real Madrid.

  • when i read that F. Perez (Dict- President of Madrid) is the chairman of ESL, It all makes sense. Aren't they still footing the bill for their stadium redevelopment that they had to force through?

  • Having a super league is cool. On fifa, or football manager. But this is real life not fantasy. Super league is a farce.

  • The status quo is disgraceful also

  • Anyone care about the fans after the breakaway folds??

  • Ferdinand is going straight into my weekend league team.

  • PL need to still take at least 12 points off all of the Big 6, either this season or the start of the next season, myself it should be this season giving other teams who would never ever get in the CL or EL. (LFC fan)

  • Well said Rio!

  • Would have been brilliant big teams constantly playing big teams no need to play small teams anymore.

  • HOW ABOUT A WORLDWIDE LEAGUE???

  • Respect to PSG

  • Why is European Super League such an enemy?? 😳I don’t get it.

  • The world is going left

  • Is there a draft system in soccer? I am familiar with US football 🏈. That system, allows for a low scoring team to pick top new players coming from universities.

  • The true reason. Below is the debt owed of each team: • Arsenal - 125 Million Euros • AC Milan - 151 Million Euros • ManCity - 200 Million Euros • Liverpool - 272 Million Euros • Juventus - 357 Million Euros • Atletico - 494 Million Euros • ManU - 528 Million Euros • Inter Milan - 630 Million Euros • Real Madrid - 901 Million Euros • Barcelona - 1,17 Billion Euros • Tottenham - 1.28 Billion Euros • Chelsea - 1.51 Billion Euros

  • Great guy

  • UEFA mafia is doing his efforts. Qatar seems very "roots" of football, very fans concerned, very humble... Hypocresy is reaching levels never seen before

  • Florentino:Rio we need a commentarist for our Superleague. This is the offer (shows him a paper) Rio: Well I think we all misunderstood the Superleague. It's a great oportunity for football bringing it to the next level...

  • Rio never shy of beeing honest.

  • THE QUEEN NEEDS TO GET INVOLVED....

  • Those rich club owners know the price of everything, but the value of nothing.

  • 👍

  • It seems the rumours about some of these big clubs blocking the Newcastle takeover are looking more like being true.

  • NFL is more fun to watch than this crappy kicking ball.

  • Totally agree with Rio

  • Is this the same Rio Ferdinand that told Newcastle fans to just buy the club if they don’t like the owner?

  • One thing that I've realized about all this... Football fans are pathetic 😂😂😂

  • Rio has a bad poker face, he knows ESL was the best thing to happen to football but he had to speak none sense to save BT and other TV networks from losing the broadcasting rights, lower quality football should be relegated to inferior leagues to keep the product enjoyable just like what the premier league did to the championship

  • Of course the other thing to consider now, is will players now consider their position before signing up for any of these Super League wannabe clubs, particularly if they're already playing for teams that have rejected this idea already, Bayern, PSG, Porto, Ajax etc. Perhaps the players at the "Big Six", could have an addendum added to their contracts saying that if any of these clubs form a Super League then their playing contracts with the clubs are terminated forthwith.

  • start playing baseball and basketball

  • The corporate world taking advantage of Covid. SAD.

  • Rio spot on...although he earned 150`000 per week and was part of the greedy system. Spot on but hypocritical.

  • all this from a man wanting a last bigger contract at united ha ha ha

  • I will never watch any of those teams again.

  • Football is dying

  • Glad I’m not a supporter of those plastic clubs

  • Rio for Prime minister!

  • this seems like there trying to make football f1

  • rio looks like a boy ,and someone took him away his beloved aquarium fish, sweet.

  • Footballs all about money! No wonder this is happening!
