Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Ander Herrera has come out in full opposition of the new plans for a European Super League.
Over the past 24 hours, 12 of the biggest clubs in Europe have publicly announced that they have agreed to join the new proposed European Super League. As announced by ESL officials, the new competition will begin in August every year and could get underway “as soon as practicable.”
So far, PSG has not been among the clubs that have elected to sign off on this new yearly closed competition, which Herrera is much behind with. On Monday via Twitter, the Spanish midfielder became one of the more notable players within Europe’s top five leagues to slam the new European Super League idea.
“I fell in love with popular football, with the football of the fans, with the dream of seeing the team of my heart compete against the greatest,” Herrera wrote. “If this European Super League advances, those dreams are over, the illusions of the fans of the teams that are not giants of being able to win on the field competing in the best competitions will end.
“I love football and I can not remain silent about this, I believe in an improved Champions, but not in the rich stealing what the people created, which is nothing other than the most beautiful sport on the planet.”

Herrera is certainly not the only player that is well against the European Super League. Many more players may soon come out and publicly declare their displeasure over this potential football-altering competition.
