    The decision to create a European Super League “looks like it is just about money”, according to The Telegraph’s Chief Football Correspondent Jason Burt.

    Six English clubs have announced they are joining a new breakaway European Super League, triggering a storm of criticism from football bodies and supporters groups.

    Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham have linked up with six European clubs – three from Spain and three from Italy – to create a rival competition to the Champions League.

    “It’s hard not to accuse them of greed to be honest”, Jason Burt said, “the money involved, the scale of the financing, how much money they expect to make out of this, it does seem to be first and foremost about money”.
