Pundit fumes at 'terrible' plan after Tottenham source's Super League reveal

Frank McAvennie doesn’t understand why Tottenham would be asked to join the Super League if it relaunches.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former West Ham striker insisted relaunching the Super League is a “terrible” idea and would make teams outside the competition “non-existent”.

On Tuesday (1 November), sources told this site that Spurs have refused to confirm if their stance on the competition has changed since withdrawing last April.

The competition’s organisers appointed a new CEO and have targeted the 2024-25 campaign to relaunch the European competition.

The Lilywhites have refused to confirm their stance on the competition if it gets off the ground.

McAvennie insisted the league is bad news for fans and clubs.

That is not going to work,” he told Football Insider.

It is the bad apple. Tottenham are not one of the top teams anyway, what are they getting asked for?

I just think it is people trying to stir it up. I can’t see it happening. It would be terrible for the game. It would make the other teams non-existent. Sponsors won’t put money into teams that are not in the top league.

I think it is a bad thing for football and the fans do not want it. Unfortunately if these owners think football can survive without fans they are so so wrong. It will ruin football. They are at breaking point with the VAR situation anyway. It is going to be terrible.
